Without the Miracle There Is Nothing -- "And what is that miracle?" you might ask. This collection of devotionals shows that there are many miracles: the miracle of creation, the miracle of yourself, the miracle of finding something within you that is also outside of you, the miracle of the Holy Spirit. Constant themes are our place in creation and our relationship to the Creator: "God is male and female, straight and gay, black, white, red, tan, yellow, etc. The children of God are Christians, Jews, Hindus, Muslims, Buddhists, and pagans . . . We all carry God's DNA. There are no exceptions to this spark of God planted within each person." "Redemption is about being reconnected to the beauty that has been planted at the heart of all being. The challenge for us is to accept our true identity - to be brought back to a place of beauty - to the God who dwells within us." The author encourages us to see the many opportunities to find God, and shares his belief that the Bible is only one resource in this quest: "The revelation of God did not stop with the library of books we call the Bible. The story continues to be told and to develop. The Scriptures in themselves show a continuing revelation from the concept of many Gods to one God, and to a God most clearly seen in the person of Jesus Christ." "The cosmic presence of God known through faith, prayer, and contemplation is witness to the Spirit's presence in everything, everywhere and at every moment."
