Love all of God's creation

“Brothers, do not be afraid of men’s sin; love man also in his sin, for this likeness of God’s love is the height of love on Earth. Love all of God’s creation, both the whole of it and every grain of sand. Love every leaf, every ray of God’s light. Love animals, love plants, love each thing. If you love each thing, you will perceive the mystery of God in things. Once you have perceived it, you will begin tirelessly to perceive more and more of it every day. And you will come at last to love the whole world with an entire, universal love…
 – from a homily of Elder Zosima in Fyodor Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov

In Gottes Segen ist alles gelegen
With the blessing of God all things are good

"The love of God makes such a unity among us that, when it is truly seen, no one can part themselves from another."  — Julian of Norwich


Washed in the Blood of the Lamb are We
Awash in a Sunburst Sea
You—Love—and I—Love—and Love Divine:
We are the Trinity

You—Love—and I—We are One-Two-Three
Twining Eternally
Two—Yes—and One—Yes—and also Three:
One Dual Trinity
Radiant Calvary
Ultimate Mystery
