Learning to live in God

As I reflect on the meaning of Thanksgiving—which I’ll be talking about in tomorrow’s sermon—I think of this great Van Morrison song. (Click the play button, and then click, “Watch on YouTube.”)

You brought it to my attention, that everything was made in God.
Down through centuries of great writings and paintings,
Everything was in God.
Seen through architecture of great cathedrals,
Down through the history of time,
Is and was in the beginning and evermore shall ever be.
When will I ever learn to live in God,
When will I ever learn?
He gives me everything I need and more,
When will I ever learn?

Surely a part of what it means to live a life of gratitude is learning to see the God in whom we live and move and have our being in everything. Some people are better at that than I am. I’m working on it.
