A world crowded with God

12th Century illumination

A little girl once told me that she learned a slogan in Sunday School that goes like this: "There is no spot where God is not."

The quotation below is simply another way of saying the same thing:

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 easy to penetrate. The real labor is to remember to attend. In fact to come awake. Still more to remain awake.

-- C.S. Lewis
