Today I had an insight into our nature as created sentient beings in relation to the whole of creation. I was preparing the prayers of intercession for our gathering and was looking for introductory themes thanking God for being our creator and acknowledging Him as God. And I had this picture of us, mankind, created out of the dust of the earth, still standing in that dust and looking down at it. Knowing that was the dust from which we had come. And I had a sense of the wonder of life. Life created out of the dust of universe, yet having knowledge and self awareness. A lump of dust aware of its being.
What imagination and creativity God had. He created a universe of dust which takes all kinds of forms. And out of that dust He created life. He formed man in His own image from the dust of the earth, give him mind, soul and spirit and breathed His own Spirit into him. Wondrous!
