Yes to the Mess

Brendan Lowe, listens and trusts every Sunday at The Table

“Most of what goes on in this world is unseen.  Planets orbit, flocks migrate, cells and organs work in the darkness.  And love does its work.  Skeptics look for proof of God, as if God were Bigfoot, as if The Holy One were any more provable than love or humor, as if paparazzi could somehow catch Spirit taking out the trash.  No, God is The Unseen One.  The closer we come the more there is only mystery.  Fools never realize that when we stop knowing and can only wonder, we are seeing God.

We learn to tune our hearts to the invisible, to see with our souls, not just our eyes, to know that we live in a world and in the company of a Presence whose power and grace so far exceeds our capacity to know or see or understand that all we can do is wonder and trust.  The world sings its song.  God is at work.  We come near, and listen with gratitude, and wonder and trust.”  ~ Steve Garness Holmes, Unfolding Light 4.10.13
