Creation mediates the “Thou” in God

“The man who believes things are there only by chance cannot give things a real intrinsic value. But for the Christian, there is an intrinsic value. The value of a thing is not in itself autonomously, but because God made it. It deserves this respect as something which was created by God, as man himself has been created by God.”
— from chapter 4, Pollution and the Death of Man by Francis Schaeffer, quoted in his son Frank’s newest book Letter to Lucy A Manifesto of Creative Redemption– In the Age of Trump, Fascism and Lies. Written by Frank Schaeffer Designed by EJG2
