“Consider the popular song from the sixties, ‘What a Wonderful World,’ performed by Louis Armstrong. It was originally written as an antidote to political and racial tensions. The optimism of the song was intended to offer hope by reflecting on the majesty of nature. But what is it about looking at the greatness of the world that can stir our hearts and imagination even in the midst of unrest?
It is what creation is pointing to beyond itself. Nature is simply doing its jobs. It is directing our attention upwards. It lifts our gaze beyond the problems of our day to a transcendent an personal source.” -Dan DeWitt, Christ or Chaos
