Pulitzer and Pentecost

I just blogged few minutes ago a comment at johndpierce.com so take a look at that as setup for this blog. Kind of in a rush now so will get to the main point which is this quote from page 245 of M Robinson's Putlitzer: Gilead.

It seemed to me somtimes as though the Lord breathes on this poor gray ember of Creation and it turns to radiance--for a moment or a year or the span of a life. And then it sinks back into itself again, and to look at it no one would know it had anything to do with fire, or light. That is what I said in the Pentecost sermon. I have reflected on that sermon and there is some truth in it. But the Lord is more constant and far more extravagant than it seems to imply. Wherever you turn your eyes the world can shine like Transfiguration. You don't have to bring a thing to it except a little willingness to see. Only, who could have the courage to see it?
