“…the beauty of diversity, the holiness of essence, and the evolutionary pull of communion.” — Sr. Joan Brown, Franciscan 1. He looks around and sees so much green, so much red, the vast spectrum of light; he holds still and hears bird song, laughter, cries, barking, waves crashing, lightning cracking, thunder roaring, symphonies playing; he sees diverse forms, animals, architecture, plants, fish, the human race in all its glorious ethnicities…. 2. He feels the blood beat of life in all; he hears the breath of life in all; he inhales the glorious scent of life in all; he touches the earth and reaches to the sky; his arms swirl in it all…. 3. He embraces the Whirling Dervish love that dances in, through, under, over, around all — the glorious creation imbued with eternity — Infinite, Immanent and Intimate.
