All Creation Sings: The Voice of God in Nature (Abingdon by J. Ellsworth Kalas PDF

By J. Ellsworth Kalas

J. Ellsworth Kalas, tailored from bankruptcy 1:

There’s an outdated hymn you will be acquainted with that includes those phrases: “This is my Father’s global, / And to my listening ears, / All nature sings, and around me earrings / The tune of the spheres. / this can be my Father’s global, / He shines in all that’s reasonable; / within the rustling grass, I listen him move, / He speaks to me in every single place” (Maltbie D. Babcock, “This Is My Father’s World”; 1901). It is right nonetheless this day that “all nature sings,” however it is more and more tough to trap the melody. nearly at any place we cross, nature’s voice is now muted by way of the sound of site visitors and various digital units. those that exit to stroll or jog are inclined to put on a tool that retains them involved with information or tune or speech—so that, deliberately or no longer, they've got close out nature’s sound and dulled its influence.

Which brings me to the purpose of this e-book. I celebrate drastically within the “green” circulate that has made new thousands aware of the beauty of our construction and the blessed necessity of taking good care of it passionately. it is a remarkable step within the correct path, and it places caliber content material into what may well rather be little greater than sentimental emotions. yet i would like us to head farther than that. i would like us no longer just to see—and certainly, to be thankful for—the wonders of nature. i need us to head past nature’s beautiful good looks till we examine a few of the classes it can educate us, classes approximately either existence and God. while nature sings (as it does each second) its melody attracts us to God, if in simple terms we hear with our complete being.

This ebook will include a dialogue guide.
