Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
    Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
    Who stretched a measuring line across it?
On what were its footings set,
    or who laid its cornerstone—
while the morning stars sang together
    and all the angels shouted for joy? —Job 38:4–7

Believe me, you will find more lessons in the woods than in books. Trees and stones will teach you what you cannot learn from masters. —Bernard of Clairvaux

Let me walk in the woods, sheltered by the story of love, where the long echoes of this lifepast and presentcome to me again through the presence of your spirit. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
