God in us

    No one has ever seen God; if we love one another, God lives in us, and his love is perfected in us.                                                  - 1 John 4.12
Love is the future. It is how we see the invisible God. We can practice the same tune on our personal instruments and with our little ensembles which the whole orchestra will one day play to make angels weep with joy.

Hi Byron,

Mostly, the combination of your images and content works well; but here don't you think you should have some people! It makes you look a bit pantheist as it is – God in us, and trees, and skyscrapers:)

A lovely way of putting it, thanks Byron.

Andrew - hadn't thought of that. Very few of my images have people in them. And even these examples generally don't have more than one person. Perhaps my photography isn't very relational?

I think that last comment included all the times I've posted photos I've taken that include people (there might have been one or two with people in the background of a building shot). There are also a few times I've posted images from the net of a thinker or writer I was discussing, but I didn't take the shot (with one exception).

Thanks Chris.

And thanks Bill - nice paraphrase! See you tomorrow.
