Brian Swimm invites humans to not only know what science teaches about the cosmos but also to “experience the knowledge” so that our autobiography becomes “autocosmology,” stories that contain a beauty that is sacred.

“At this time of ecological catastrophe, praying with a sense of participation in creation’s praise of God” says Bill McKibben, “allows people to recover a healthy sense of their own place in the world as created beings alongside our fellow creatures. He continues, “…when we join them in their own clapping and singing” we realize that “their value for God is not based on their usefulness” instead we grow in awareness of the “enormous ethical implications for how we exercise ecological responsibility.”

We can become “cantors of the universe” as Rabbi Heschel said.

“I think landscape is an incredible, mystical teacher, and when you begin to tune into the sacred presence, something shifts inside you…landscape is always at prayer, and its prayer is seamless.”
