He is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation; for in him all things in heaven and on earth were created, things visible and invisible, whether thrones or dominions or rulers or powers—all things have been created through him and for him.
The cosmic dance
Our telescopic eyes look deep into distant time, and we stagger at the color and beauty, the immensity and intricacy of a universe we can barely imagine, if at all. We see nearly to the dawn of time—15 billion years I am told. How can I imagine that?
But that is when all that is exploded into existence from an infinitesimal speck, so dense no light could neither penetrate or escape its gravity. An unimaginable blackness—and from this comes billions of galaxies each with billions of stars that make our sun look like an underachiever. And it continues to expand every second, an expanding cosmos.
And every atom, every drop of water, every galaxy, the dark matter stretching billions of light years between the burning suns bears the mark of Christ, created in love, by love and for love—from the joy of the divine heart who makes worlds and drives us to our knees at the sheer wonder of it all.
And we, too. All of us. All that is bears the mark of its Maker. We are fashioned in and for the Love he is, being drawn into a harmony of Spirit and matter so that everything, everywhere glistens with the glory of his life.
For you, Holy One, draws all that is into a great, cosmic dance, a holy harmony of peace and beauty where all is one.
This universe is one great story, and we are part of that story. The story begins in the impenetrable darkness of the divine will and ends in a great dance of light and color, beauty and love where each things finds its place in the Love he is.
No words can speak this. The silence of awe is the only true worship.
Pr. David L. Miller
