Speaker: Bill Gorman,

>> A gloriously good God created a gloriously good creation.
"First, the very best time to be an intellectually satisfied atheist was one hundred years ago, circa 1917, and it has been getting gradually harder ever since. And second, one hundred years from now, circa 2117, it is entirely possible that the most intellectually coherent account of the cosmos, on the basis of all that we know, will be in deep continuity with biblical, trinitarian faith". —Andy Crouch, “Intellectually Frustrated Atheists and Intellectually Frustrated Christians” in Creation and Doxology
"Is it actually possible that an impersonal world could give rise to persons? Does it not make far more sense to suppose that such a world is in some mysterious way not just capable of personhood but defined by it, not just capable of life but defined by life?" —Andy Crouch, “Intellectually Frustrated Atheists and Intellectually Frustrated Christians” in Creation and Doxology
>> Your mind can believe it.
>> Your eyes can see it.
>> Your heart longs for it.
>>What it matters on Monday
- Recognize: You are a creature living in a creation
- Respond: Worship the Creator

"When we enjoy God’s creation we reflect God himself. God does not stoically pronounce creation “good,” like a disinterested manager checking off the quality checklist so he can clock out early. God delights in the perfect acoustics of ocean waves, swoons over the subtle intensity of dark chocolate, and glories in robins’ eggs and peacock calls". — Tish Harrison Warren, Liturgy of the Ordinary
"It is possible that God says every morning, “Do it again” to the sun; and every evening, “Do it again” to the moon. It may not be automatic necessity that makes all daisies alike; it may be that God makes every daisy separately, but has never got tired of making them. It may be that He has the eternal appetite of infancy; for we have sinned and grown old, and our Father is younger than we." — G. K. Chesterton, Orthodox
