Sculptors at the Chartres Cathedral expressed their understanding of God with their hands. Contemplating these images of God can still soften our hearts, open our minds, and draw us into the loving presence of God who created humanity. I find that mirroring the hand positions of God (and holding them for at least 30 seconds) as I meditate on each image helps to connect me to God’s creative presence.
Imagine yourself as Adam, completely at peace in the lap of your Creator.
Imagine yourself as Eve, being held by the loving hand of your Creator, while he blesses you.
