In this second week of our series on Creation Spirituality, we focus on the idea of “The Word of God Speaks…” creation as “scripture.” According to our ancient wisdom ALL of creation has a voice! Indeed, Mother Earth herself has a direct line of communication with God, such that when Cain murdered his brother, Abel’s spilled blood made the Earth cry out to God in pain and concern. This doesn’t mean that we literally, listen, although many times we do… to trees, the wind, to birds, and frogs, and even crickets! But it can guide us as we journey through this life, at this time, in this (or any) particular place. How might we understand how to listen closer to the voices of creation, listening for the need to turn and move forward in a different away, and in so doing, transform both ours and all of life?
