the likeness of God
“For where shall the likeness of God be found? There is no quality that space has in common with the essence of God. There is not freedom enough on the top of a mountain; there is not glory enough in the silence of the sea. Yet the likeness of God can be found in time, which is eternity in disguise.”
I found this quote in a book I've been reading and it has been occupying my thoughts for a few weeks now. In context Heschel is talking about the centrality of the Sabbath to worship in Judaism. Not because the Sabbath is the day we attend synagogue/church, but because the suspending of our time/week is in itself an act of worship.
Time really is sacred.
