About nature and its Artist

Two Book Reflections

This title REFLECTS a few changes in our lives. We have moved to La Crosse, WI to be closer to family. This means a change from prairie and lakes to rivers and bluffs. Also, I want to explore two things on this site. These two things are inspired by a sentence found in the Belgic Confession –

“…the universe is before our eyes like a beautiful book in which all creatures great and small are as letters to make us ponder the invisible things of God…”

I am now retired from pastoral work, where I spent a lot of time in the Word, reading, observing closely and teaching it to others. For over a decade I’ve been exploring various art forms – woodcarving and painting in particular. This involves is also a kind of reading and observing the second book, the book of nature.

Some of the articles will be reflections on the Word and others on the World.

This kind of reflecting requires pulling off the road of daily activity and turning aside to a book or to a place to look at the world. It is a kind of visual meditation. It is rewarding for your mind and body to take this time. and to find ways, by any art form or any word form you like to enter into this place and reflect on it.
