“We may ignore, but we can nowhere evade, the presence of God.
The world is crowded with Him. He walks everywhere incognito.
And the incognito is not always hard to penetrate.
The real labour is to remember, to attend …
in fact to come awake.
Still more, to remain awake.”
C.S. Lewis in Letters to Malcolm
God is all around us: in the giver and the receiver, in the carer and the cared for, in the speaker and the listener, in medical professional and the patient, in the supermarket worker and the shopper, in the delivery worker and the person isolated at home. God’s nature can be seen in every good deed done and every word of thanks spoken. God is also all around us: in the beauty of creation, in the natural and manufactured medicines, in the provision of our daily food, in our neighbour, in every kindness shown and every encouragement given, in the words of His Bible and in the lives of everyone who praises Him.
Jesus Christ has ascended into heaven,
‘He walks everywhere incognito’
