And God said, “Let there be light,” and there was light. And God saw that the light was good. And God separated the light from the darkness. God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.Genesis 1:3-5 ESV
We went to see the movie “Oppenheimer,” a few months back and I was reminded of the amazing nature of light — Its duality. It has two characteristics: waves and particles. This is a captivating paradox and a lesson for our first thoughts about spirituality. Spirituality is hard to nail down. What is it? Like other mysteries of the universe, we enjoy God’s creation without understanding it. Like the cars we drive, we appreciate the benefit of getting where we want to go. But many of us are clueless when it comes to the inner workings of the car. Our spiritual nature and the nature of the universe also have multiple dimensions. We encounter the miraculous all around us, often failing to acknowledge the divine design. The metaphor of light continues to shape our conversations, shedding light on the facts of creation, enlightening and invigorating our experience. Truth is a critical theme — light is a symbol of truth. As we discover the spiritual practices of the 8 Moves experience, we will find multiple meanings and expressions in the depths of God’s creation. Other sensory expressions will be used as we consider the complexity of spirituality together. Join us daily to experience more of the miraculous as we highlight who God is and what He is doing in creation.
