Tangential thoughts somewhat related to the chapter:
On evangelism: We sometimes think creation is good because we get to tell people about our creator. “Aha! They’ll never be able to deny him when they see this [insert scene]”
But I’m not sure taking the quickest way to sharing of our God is always the best, particular if you have a thinker with you. Partly because it immediately raises questions of suffering (as soon as they’re with us and see it together), that only written revelation can give a satisfactory response to. If you’re wanting confrontation, perhaps. And that’s not always bad. But 90 times out of a hundred, I prefer to sit with people in their questions, and work together towards a solution, rather than coming with a perceived answer to someone’s non-question. More on this another time.
