The Gospel of Creation
Blessed be you, universal matter, immeasurable time, boundless ether . . . you who by overflowing and dissolving our narrow standards of measurement reveal to us the dimensions of God. (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin)
Come away and rest awhile. Allow yourself the spaciousness to experience healing and refreshment. Take walks in quiet solitude or with friends amidst the fragrant pines. Join in fruitful conversation. Soak in the good news of creation in the midst of the beauty of the mountains, flowing waters and the community of Pyramid Life Center.
We will explore creation as gift and reality that illuminates love and calls us into communion. Come explore the mystery of the Universe. Discern the countless ways of being in relationship with all of creation. Consider, too, the ways we miss and disregard the Gospel of Creation. Take time to pray about your personal relationship with nature and to explore what kind of participation God calls us to – individually and communally – in light of the sacred beauty of life and all of creation and in light of the urgent need to care for our common home.
