Creation – John Valters Paintner

April 27, 2020

“All of creation is the intentional handiwork of the Creator. Not just humans but all of creation mirrors the beauty of the Creator. Nature is experienced as a vast and sacred landscape shimmering with goodness because of its divine creation. Nature is the original sacred space and sanctuary where humans are invited to dwell.”

 John Valters Paintner, MTS, Earth, Our Original Monastery: Cultivating Wonder and Gratitude through Intimacy with Nature
