The fingerprints of God

Professor David Tacey, in his best seller ‘The Spirituality Revolution,’ says that despite the exodus from organised religion in our society, there is also a profound sense of spiritual emptiness,and a desperate search for a transcendant reality beyond the confines of the material world. We get a sense of it in beauty, which is why most of us can be profoundly moved by a certain piece of music or poetry – both of which bypass the limitations of reason and touch the spirit. Theologian Tom Wright calls these things: “the fingerprints of God.”
Whereas science confines, explains and reduces the objective world, we all long for times when we connect with something greater than ourselves and experience something fathomless and ineffable. And Jesus said we’ll find it if we just open our minds to seek it.
