Time for Wonder, "Only wonder understands"

“Concepts create idols — Only wonder understands!”
Gregory of Nyssa

Walking home tonight, I paused to see the wonder of the bright stars, the waning moon, and the entire beautiful night sky on an evening in the bleak midwinter. I pray that we might all take time to experience the wonder of God's creation, the same creation that made him say, "It is good" over and over again in Genesis. That same creation is all around us, and offers such wonder, if we take the time to pause and see it.

Blessings for a Holy Epiphany, and may we take the time to do some stargazing!

~ The Rev. Peter M. Carey
