The web of life

Pelicans gliding and diving, dolphins swimming up and down the coast, sandpipers pecking at water’s edge, crabs appearing in and out of holes, sea turtles tracks marking night time journeys. The web of ocean and beaches abundant life if we but open our eyes.

What does the web of life hold in your surroundings?

Horizons

On day two of creation God separated earth and sky, creating a horizon. Horizons beckon us beyond ourselves toward a vision. Though visible they stay just beyond our reach, thus beckoning us onward in our journey while staying present to where we are.

What horizon is beckoning you? What imagination does it take for this journey?

Driftwood

Augustin once described the lifesaving quality of beauty as “a plank amidst the waves of the sea”.

What does lifesaving beauty look like? What images come to your mind? How is beauty lifesaving?

Ordinary beauty

Something as ordinary as a sun-umbrella, it’s beauty suddenly before my eyes brightens my view of my surroundings. It arrives unexpected, sacred and ordinary.

Where do you notice the beauty of God in both the vastness of the horizon and the ordinary particular?

Spaciousness

Sun, sand, ocean, waves, and sky speaking of the One who was, and is, and forever will be…endless, constant and present.

Where do you encounter the spaciousness of the Creator?
