Ninian’s Catechism

Apprehend God in all things
For God is in all things
Every single creature is full of God and is a book about God.
Every creature is a word of God.
If I spent enough time with the tiniest creature – even a caterpillar –
I would never have to prepare a sermon.
So full of God is every creature.
Meister Eckhart

Teach me my God and King
In all things thee to see
That what I do, in anything
I’ll do it unto thee.
Charles Kingsley
