Join us as we gather virtually and Rev. Nancy brings this week’s message, Beguiled by Beauty: Abyss, Mystery, and Wonder.
Gather some bread and juice to celebrate Communion, and a candle for our time of Prayer.
Week 4: Abyss, Mystery, and Wonder Synopsis: The spiritual part of ourselves is a “divine abyss.” It is a dimension that is not touched by words, thoughts, ideas and feelings. Our bodies were made for perceiving the beauty of the world–a flower, a kiss, a stunning and vibrant green hillside, a newborn baby. And yet all the art in the world cannot capture exactly what it feels like to experience the Divine nature of these things. The path of unknowing is to both savor what the senses can take in but also wonder at the mystery of unfathomable depths of even a single atom. For those living a contemplative life, this is a “sweetness of longing and of tasting in which one ceases to praise and becomes pure praise, an unending chant to the divine goodness.” Scripture: Psalm 135: 1-3; 13-21 (Inclusive Bible)
