J. Ellsworth Kalas, adapted from chapter 1:
Theres an old hymn you may be familiar with that contains these words: This is my Fathers world, / And to my listening ears, / All nature sings, and round me rings / The music of the spheres. / This is my Fathers world, / He shines in all thats fair; / In the rustling grass, I hear him pass, / He speaks to me everywhere (Maltbie D. Babcock, This Is My Fathers World; 1901). It is true still today that all nature sings, but it is increasingly difficult to catch the melody. Almost anywhere we go, natures voice is now muted by the sound of traffic and assorted electronic devices. Those who go out to walk or jog are likely to wear a device that keeps them in touch with news or music or speechso that, intentionally or not, they have shut out natures sound and dulled its influence.
Which brings me to the point of this book. I rejoice greatly in the green movement that has made new millions conscious of the wonder of our creation and the blessed necessity of caring for it passionately. This is a magnificent step in the right direction, and it puts quality content into what might otherwise be little more than sentimental feelings. But I want us to go farther than that. I want us not simply to seeand indeed, to be grateful forthe wonders of nature. I want us to go beyond natures exquisite beauty until we learn some of the lessons it would teach us, lessons about both life and God. When nature sings (as it does every moment) its melody draws us to God, if only we listen with our whole being.
