Where Do We Find Holiness?

Holiness
Holiness on the wing

The world is holy. We are holy. All life is holy. Daily prayers are delivered on the lips of breaking waves, the whisperings of grasses, the shimmering of leaves.

-Terry Tempest Williams from Talking to God: Portrait of a World at Prayer (anthology)

  1. Sister, that is a great photo! This quote I looked at for a moment like a rock garden thing. In the relief I saw the Bible’s English translated terminology “evil imaginings” and that led to another thought about reality in general. The thought I had was, if the Flying Spaghetti Monster is an imagining, it is real in its own way. So is every evil thought. Yet those thoughts or nature-contrary actions are re-imaginings, ways we would re-image the world askew of the way she really is. So maybe the King’s translators should have written “evil re-imaginings” or “un-imaginings” or “anti-imaginings,” since the imagination living natively within us does not seek to uglify the world and all relationships. All that from a butterfly and a quote selection. Thanks Sister.
