God can be found in all places.

It can be found in going bowling with friends and your father, and realizing that as your father bowls with his father’s old bowling ball your father moves a lot like your grandfather used to and It can be found in a dark film about loss and the human spirit in spite of it. It can be found in realizing that a computer program is going to make your semester easier and It can be found in dinner with your parents and grandpa. It can be found in Flannery O’Connor books and It can be found in the singer of Death Cab for Cutie saying, literally as you write this, “Thanks, goodbye. Take care of one another” as he ends a performance on PBS. It can be found in a tropical storm making good surfing for a friend. It can be found in the honky tonk bars in Nashville and It can be found on the El in Chicago. It can be found out in Los Angeles and It can be found walking between the World Trade Center towers in the 70s. It can be found in tobacco and It can be found in clean air. It can be found in alcohol and It can be found in water. It can be found in homeless people and (maybe less so?) in the rich. It can be found in us and in them.

We just have to be willing to see It. We don’t even really have to look for It, because It’s everywhere. It invades our world and takes over every single part of it. We just have to be willing to see it in both comfortable and uncomfortable places.
