For thus says the Lord,
who created the heavens
(he is God!),
who formed the earth and made it
(he established it; he did not create it a chaos,
he formed it to be inhabited!):
"I am the Lord, and there is no other.
I did not speak in secret,
in a land of darkness;
I did not say to the offspring of Jacob,
'Seek me in chaos,'
I the Lord speak the truth,
I declare what is right."
Isaiah 45: 18-19
The Holy Bible
Revised Standard Edition
To the Biblical man, the sublime is but a form in which the
presence of God strikes forth...The stars sing; the mountains
tremble in HIs presence. To think of God man must hear the world.
...There is no true thinker who does not possess an awareness
that his thought is a part of an endless context, that his ideas
are not taken from the air. All philosophy is but a word in a
sentence, just as to a composer the complete symphony is but
a note in an inexhaustible melody.
Yet, how would we know of the mystery of being if not through
our sense of the ineffable, and it is this sense that communicates
to us the supremacy and grandeur of the ineffable together
with the knowledge of its reality.
Abraham J. Heschel (1907-1992)
One of the most significant Jewish theologians
Excerpted from "Between God and Man,"
Free Press Paperbacks, 1997
In the beginning was the Word,
and the word was with God,
and the Word was God.
He was in the beginning with God.
All things came to be through him,
and without him nothing came to be.
John 1: 1-3
New American Bible
I sought to hear the voice of God,
and climbed the topmost steeple.
But God declared: "Go down again,
I dwell among the people."
Louis I. Newman (1893-1972)
Learn that the silence
Is God's way of pausing
So that we may hear
The voice of faith.

By constantly following the inner voice of conscience,
which is the voice of God, you will become a truly moral
person, a highly spiritual being, a man of peace.

And now, the Last Word:
I will listen for Thy voice,
Lest my footsteps stray;
I will follow and rejoice
All the rugged way.
