TD: “Maybe we get used to the normal miracles. The way the body works. The way the sun gives light, heat and energy to the earth. Understanding these things is just as amazing as the seas splitting apart. But if the sea just split apart randomly we’d just have a weird phenomenon. But if this happens in a context of God’s hand being revealed to protect his fleeing people it has meaning and shows his love.”
This paragraph stands out to me, Thomas. Love the term “normal miracles”. We are living in one big miracle made up of a gazillion miraculous phenomena. The ‘laws of nature’ by which some would like to explain away God’s hand in this are miracles in themselves. The maths, the physics, and the chemistry required for life are all amazing. God constantly manipulates those laws in ways both invisible and visible to us, usually invisible and (it seems) only occasionally visible in the present moment.
