Isn’t it amazing to think what it would have been like to watch God form the stars and planets, the ocean and the mountains, and everything on the earth. These things are beautiful to look at now, can you imagine how glorious it would be to have been able to watch as they were created? Sometimes days can go by in busyness without a pause to stop and notice how amazing the universe really is, but those times when we stop to look up at the night sky, or notice the beauty of a sunset, or a horse running through a field, make you feel a sense of awe at how much beauty and variety of things God has created. There are so many strange and fascinating things on earth, that you have to wonder at the imagination of God. Have you seen pictures of some of the unusual creatures that live along the hydrothermal vents on the floor of the Pacific Ocean? Genesis tells of God looking at everything he had made and resting from his work. How often do you take the time to stop working and appreciate the beauty and wonder of God’s creation?

I am reading We Make the Road by Walking, by Brian McClaren. I am planning to blog about each section as I read it. It is meant to take about a year. I have read most of his other books and I think he has a lot of valuable things to say, so I’m looking forward to reading this one. As the front flap of the books says, this book is meant to help you “re-imagine what it means to live joyfully and responsibly in today’s world as agents of God’s justice, creativity, and peace.” The books says that faith is not something you find once and stay that way. It is meant to grow and develop over the course of your life. I’m hoping reading this book and reflecting on it will help me on that journey. Look for my next post on it soon.
