There’s an outdated hymn you can be acquainted with that comprises those phrases: “This is my Father’s international, / And to my listening ears, / All nature sings, and around me jewelry / The track of the spheres. / this is often my Father’s international, / He shines in all that’s reasonable; / within the rustling grass, I pay attention him go, / He speaks to me far and wide” (Maltbie D. Babcock, “This Is My Father’s World”; 1901). It is correct nonetheless this day that “all nature sings,” however it is more and more tough to capture the melody. virtually anyplace we cross, nature’s voice is now muted by means of 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 song 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 e-book. I have fun enormously within the “green” circulation that has made new thousands aware of the sweetness of our production and the blessed necessity of taking good care of it passionately. this can be a extraordinary step within the correct course, and it places caliber content material into what may possibly rather be little greater than sentimental emotions. yet i would like us to head farther than that. i need us no longer just to see—and certainly, to be thankful for—the wonders of nature. i need us to head past nature’s beautiful attractiveness till we research a few of the classes it should train us, classes approximately either existence and God. while nature sings (as it does each second) its melody attracts us to God, if basically we pay attention with our entire being.
