My left leg has been twitching every night for the last 4 or 5 days so I’ve been up a good bit later than I like to be. Since there was no cheesy SCI-FI movie on the SCI-FI channel (they’re so bad they draw me in), I flipped through the channels and locked onto Letterman.
This joker seemed like someone I would definitely want as a friend. Nice guy, at least during the interview. Anyhow, he poetically spoke of the spirituality of the Grand Canyon as you “See the hand of God, as the river has been carving the canyon for a billion years.” It reminded me of Psalm 19, where the heavens declare the glory of the Lord, and the skies the work of His hand.
Nature truly does point us to the God who created it (not the God who is in and a part of it, called pan-en-theism). Burns really challenged me to think more poetically about creation, and he’s following good biblical precedent.
In addition, Burns mentioned that its not just about individual spiritual connection, but about sharing that park experience with others. Life experiences are meant to be shared, how much more should our spirituality be shared in corporate worship and in community groups? Nice common grace insights from Burns.
