John Leax on Incarnation

One of the main reasons I read is to discover beautiful language, people using language in ways I would like to use it, people using language to express the sometimes nearly inexpressible. John Leax, in Grace Is Where I Live, did this in the following lines:

“Though what else incarnation might finally mean remains a mystery, one thing is plain: everything is profoundly connected–divinity, humans, vultures, trees, rocks and water. If it is the presence of the divine that sanctifies the ground and divinity has linked itself to all things, then everywhere one walks is holy ground, and the journey to the Holy Land is a journey into awareness. We owe the creation and the Creator attention.” (115)
