In the beginning…
“It is Good!”
“…all the beauty of the world, the beauty that calls our admiration, our gratitude, our worship at the earthly level, is meant as a set of hints, of conspiratorial whispers, of clues and suggestions and flickers of light, all nudging us into believing that behind the beautiful world is not random chance but the loving God.” (N.T. Wright, For All God’s Worth)
“If we are created in the image and likeness of God, then whatever good, true, or beautiful things we can say about humanity or creation we can say of God exponentially. God is the beauty of creation and humanity multiplied to the infinite power.” (Fr Richard Rohr)
Imagine the infant world in all its perfection.
Imagine what it was like when every single relationship,
(People with God – People with People- and People with Earth) was utterly perfect.
Take a moment to think of the good things God has created in this world. Write down a few of them on a post it note and stick it to the globe.
