There’s an outdated hymn you can be accustomed to that includes those phrases: “This is my Father’s international, / And to my listening ears, / All nature sings, and around me jewelry / The tune of the spheres. / this can be my Father’s international, / He shines in all that’s reasonable; / within the rustling grass, I listen him cross, / He speaks to me in every single place” (Maltbie D. Babcock, “This Is My Father’s World”; 1901). It is right nonetheless this present day that “all nature sings,” however it is more and more tricky to trap the melody. nearly wherever we move, nature’s voice is now muted via the sound of site visitors and various digital units. those that exit to stroll or jog are inclined to put on a tool that retains them in contact with information or tune or speech—so that, deliberately or now not, they've got close out nature’s sound and dulled its influence.
Which brings me to the purpose of this ebook. I celebrate tremendously within the “green” stream that has made new thousands aware of the beauty of our construction and the blessed necessity of taking care of it passionately. this can be a brilliant step within the correct course, and it places caliber content material into what could rather be little greater than sentimental emotions. yet i would like us to move farther than that. i need us no longer just to see—and certainly, to be thankful for—the wonders of nature. i would like us to head past nature’s beautiful good looks until eventually we study many of the classes it should train us, classes approximately either existence and God. whilst nature sings (as it does each second) its melody attracts us to God, if simply we hear with our complete being.
