September Wordle

A Wordle of my September cupcakes...

A lot to ponder. Some big words in the middle, but out on the edges there's wilderness, greenness, wonderful contradiction, intuition unending and brilliance... I'm struck by "Church - one city, different ways". What do you see?

And how would God be known as the Eternal One if brilliance did not emerge from God?  For there is no creature without some kind of radiance–whether it be greenness, seeds, buds, or another kind of beauty.

In the end

It will all be OK in the end. If it's not OK, it's just not the end.

Heaven and hell

In hell, they talk a lot about love.  In heaven, they just do  it.  Hell is an unending church service without God.  Heaven is God without a church service!

We are all part of the Church. If you say you believe in God but not in the Church, you're saying you don't believe in yourself, and that's a contradiction.

City and wilderness

You have to leave the city of your comfort and go into the wilderness of your intuition. What you'll discover will be wonderful. What you'll discover is yourself.

Science and religion

The natural world is something science and religion both speak about in their very different ways. Science explains; religion celebrates. Science speaks, religion sings. Science is prose, religion is poetry and we need them both.

August Wordle

I'm shamelessly pinching the idea from my blogging friend Silvana, but I thought it would be fun to make a Wordle each month out of my cupcakes. So here's August's... Wow, there's a lot there! But One God is writ large. What do you see?
