Session seven looks at the ways we make sense of the world around us,
God’s wisdom in creation and our response of worship.
How do you make sense of the world around you?
How many are your works, Lord! In wisdom you made them all; the earth is full of your creatures.
Tiwonge Mzumara-Gawa speaks beautifully about how her work builds her faith. The wonder of creation is something she can share with others.
The wonder of creation connects all of us. God creates ‘in wisdom’, and yet our response to the wisdom of creation is marred.
Both Victor Mughogho and Peter Harris pick up on this in the video. We may be changing the world rapidly, but these changes are leaving people behind.
Wisdom and worship hold in common the recognition of worth. Our response to God’s wisdom in creation should lead us into lives of worship. Lives which display and honour the worth of all creation.
If used well, science and faith are tools by which to uncover the wisdom of God in creation. They can help us make sense of the world around us and lead us into lives of worship.
Pray, thanking God for his wisdom in creation and asking for more of this to become apparent to you, that it might lead you into worship.
