Mirror of Love

A Sufi maxim states, “You are the mirror in which God sees himself.”

Mirrors create depth and reflect light. It amazes me how a tiny fragment reflects so much light. I can be walking down a hallway and a sequin catches my attention. How may I reflect Christ in the world? I may feel as insignificant as that sequin, yet the gifts I share make a significant difference. As a musician, the notes I share are words of proclamation; shining God’s love through music into the darkness.

Cynthia Bourgeault writes, “The created realm is not an artifact but an instrument through which the divine life becomes perceptible to itself. It’s the way the score gets transformed into the music.”

God is love ~1 John 4: 8, 16
