Where would you look for God?

 

You might go into a church – perhaps a beautiful sanctuary, like the St. Paul Cathedral.  Maybe you would find God in nature, but the scenery would probably be something spectacular – a beautiful sunset, the Grand Canyon, a mountain top view, the stillness of a Minnesota lake with the call of a loon in the background.  You could look for God in a book, but it would have to be an exceptional book unlike any other.  You might find him in a person, probably someone with extraordinary wisdom and insight.  We expect to see him in the grand and glorious – in the best of everything.
