Living Spiritual Rhythms–March 18

Lamentably, few churches are teaching Christians how to read the book of nature and the book of God, so that we can understand what kinds of worlds we’re dwelling in. Creative, insightful, imaginative, and wise could be four dimensions of serious Christian engagement with both texts, but we face severe impoverishment as the book of God and the book of nature pale into individualistic monologues. When this happens, Christian mission crashes and begins to fade, while our spirituality descends into flames of insignificance.
