Speaking of all God does

“I don’t think it is enough appreciated how much an outdoor book the Bible is.
It is…a book open to the sky.
It is best read and understood outdoors, and the farther outdoors the better…

Passages that within walls seem improbable or incredible, outdoors seem merely natural.
This is because outdoors we are confronted everywhere with wonders;
we see that the miraculous is not extraordinary but the common mode of existence.
It is our daily bread.”

Wendell Berry

We look at this Son and see the God who cannot be seen.
We look at this Son and see God’s original purpose in everything created.
For everything, absolutely everything, above and below, visible and invisible,
rank after rank after rank of angels—
everything got started in Him and finds its purpose in Him.
He was there before any of it came into existence
and holds it all together right up to this moment.

Colossians 1:15-18 The Message

“Attention is the chief means by which our souls encounter God.”

Simone Weil
