Barbara Brown Taylor:
"reverence is the recognition of something greater than the self—something that is beyond human creation or control, that transcends full human understanding . . . Reverence stands in awe of something—something that dwarfs the self, that allows human beings to sense the full extent of our limits . . . Reverence may take all kinds of forms, depending on what it is that awakens awe in you by reminding you of your true size . . . nature is a good place to start. Nature is full of things bigger and more powerful than human beings . . . But size is not everything."
Because even a red-shouldered hawk in flight may evoke reverence in us.
