“The most telling and profound way of describing the evolution of the universe would undoubtedly be to trace the evolution of love.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin

Psalm 36:9-10

They feast on the rich food of your house; from your delightful stream you give them drink. For with you is the fountain of life, and in your light we see light.

God is the source of all.

How can we capture the ineffable mystery of God in a three-letter word?

Impossible!

But we know that there is a Loving Source from which everything flows in wondrous creativity.

The universe has been a creative project unfolding for the last 13.8 billion years, at least that’s when science estimates there was a “Big Bang.”

We humans are in synergy with all other life forms here on Earth, an amazing orb teeming with life.

Our planet is also a tiny speck in the vast expanse of space which is illuminated by 200 billion to two trillion galaxies.

The Source of it all is Love (1 John 4:8).

Unfortunately, many humans live in the delusion of self-serving egos which create divisions and suffering.

Jesus gave us the model for living a life connected to the Source of Love and showed us that life poured out in love does not end but is transformed.

And life poured out in daily service transforms each moment into what Jesus called the kingdom of God.

There is no final death.

Death always leads to life.

That is good news indeed and reason to celebrate!
