Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

whole of nature...

whole of nature
photo by Chris Doyle

My son, Chris, and I took a walk,
this last week, on the Hummel nature trail
just outside of Hummelstown, PA.
My dad, when he still taught at the
old Hummelstown high school,
used to walk a similar trail
in this very area, spotting
and identifying birds.
Chris took this flower photo
with his iPhone.
Getting out in nature,
enjoying the beauty
of God's creation
is so peaceful and relaxing.

"A human being is a part of the whole
called by us universe,
a part limited in time and space.
He experiences himself, his thoughts and feeling
as something separated from the rest,
a kind of optical delusion of his consciousness.
This delusion is a kind of prison for us,
restricting us to our personal desires
and to affection for a few persons nearest to us.
Our task must be to free ourselves from this prison
by widening our circle of compassion
to embrace all living creatures
and the whole of nature in its beauty."

- Albert Einstein
