“A third kind of contemplative prayer is meditation upon the creation. Now, this is no infantile pantheism, but a majestic monotheism in which the great creator of the universe shows us something of his glory through his creation. The heavens do indeed declare the glory of God and the firmament does show forth his handiwork (Ps. 19:1). Evelyn Underhill recommends, “… begin with that first form of contemplation which the old mystics sometimes called ‘the discovery of God in his creatures.'” from Richard Foster (Celebration of Discipline).
