AWE-some Reflection Questions
What has impeded or assisted being aware of wonder and awe for you?
When was the last time you stood in awe of your life partner? your child?
Can you imagine someone standing in awe of you?
Is it possible that awe is where God is found?
G.K. Chesterton – “This at least seems to me the main problem… How can we contrive to be at once astonished at the world and yet at home in it?”
Dacher Keltner – “Awe is the feeling of being in the presence of something vast that transcends your understanding of the world.”
Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel – “Awe enables us to perceive in the world intimations of the divine… to sense the ultimate in the common and the simple; to feel in the rush of the passing the stillness of the eternal.”
Rev. Victoria Safford – “You sing your song in your own key, in your own beautiful voice, and the cosmos listens, reverently.”
