Presence

So the one who came down is the same one who went up, above and beyond the heavens, to fill the whole universe with his presence. Ephesians 4: 10

Everything spoke of a Presence, vibrated with God’s love. They saw a universe ablaze with his glory, suffused with a presence that calls, nods and beckons – a creation personally united with its Creator in every atom and fibre.
David Adam

The material is shot through with the spiritual; there is a ‘within-ness’ of God in all life. The whole earth is sacramental: everything is truly every blessed thing.
Ron Ferguson Chasing the Wild Goose

Earth’s crammed with heaven
And every common bush afire with God.
Elizabeth Barrett Browning

There’s no plant in the ground
But is full of his blessing
There’s no thing in the sea
But is full of his life
There is nought in the sky
But proclaims his goodness
Jesu! O Jesu! it’s good to praise thee!
There’s no bird on the wing
But is full of his blessing
There’s no star in the sky
But is full of his life
There is nought neath the sun
But proclaims his goodness
Jesu! O Jesu! it’s good to praise thee!
Carmina Gadelica
