Prayer & Contemplation – Christine Valters Paintner

April 20, 2018

“If the leaves are a scripture text and creation a visible revelation of the divine presence in our midst, then we might consider these worthy of prayer and contemplation. . . . This invitation to understand prayer is deeply incarnational and rich, discovering the presence of the holy woven through every element, so that we no longer address our prayers to some transcendent being, but right in conversation with the shimmering presence of the divine through every leaf, acorn, gust of wind, and mossy stone.”
