Reflection for the Week - August 26

The biblical text is full of worlds. I suggest that there are pertinent signs and resolute traces of God, making himself known in a polyphonic manner. Think of the Garden in Genesis, the burning bush in Exodus, the throne theophaines in Isaiah and Ezekiel, and the resurrection of Jesus. These writings manifest the truth that God is there. Expressed through the language and material context of our world, they also go far beyond it. Therefore, to understand more about God, it is essential to imaginatively enter these worlds as we read about them, and then to inhabit them through our actions.
