Creative Transformation

"Creation is not a periodic intrusion of the First Cause: it is an act co-extensive with the whole duration of the universe. God has been creating ever since the beginning of time, and, seen from within, his creation (even his initial creation?) takes the form of transformation. Participated being is not introduced in batches which are differentiated later as a result of a non-creative modification: God is continually breathing new life into us."

Teilhard, Paris, unpublished 1920.

If anyone is interested I can send them a copy of the essay associated with this quote - 4 pages in total.

Nice work. I came across your blog while “blog surfing” using the Next Blog button on the blue Nav Bar located at the top of my blogger.com site. I frequently just travel around looking for other blogs which exist on the Internet, and the various, creative ways in which people express themselves. Thanks for sharing.
