First of all is my recognition that I am a human being. As such, I am constrained in a living body that is a part of all of life. I was conceived, was born, and will die. That in itself is a profound and wonderful mystery. As a living human being, I am therefore related to all of life. And relationship is my primary human function. It is why I am here. It means relationships not only to other human beings, but also to all the other life around me, including the animals and trees and flowers. It is in these relationships to other life – and especially to other persons – that I see God. And the closest word describing these relationships is LOVE.

I also find myself in a universe of both incredible minuteness and mind-boggling vastness.  That it is at all comprehensible to a human being is itself a profound mystery. And it is in Creation that has been and is still taking place even now, and particularly in the story of the evolution of life on this small planet earth located in one of myriad galaxies in time and space that I also see God. And the word describing this is AWE.

And this love and this awe become real whenever my two-year-old grandson, Alex, comes running to me and climbs into my lap and we just sit together.

  1. How deep are those little moments. I have always felt my religion is love and God is love.
