Practicing God’s Presence through Videos

‘The heavens are telling of the glory of God; and their expanse is declaring the work of His hands.’ —Psalm 19:1

This compilation of videos and video resources offers a glimpse into the beauty, complexity, and diversity of the world God created. These videos were primarily assembled to aid with one of the exercises in A Guide to Practicing God’s Presence (the companion, online training guide to Life in the Presence of God: Practices for Living in Light of Eternity). We will continue to add to this list as we come across new videos that we believe help evoke awe of the work of our Creator.

Note of Caution: The videos below come from sources that do not necessarily hold a biblical worldview; by linking to them, we are not endorsing the ideas or viewpoint that they espouse.

“Meditation on the created order is too often neglected as a meaningful component of devotional spirituality. This is unfortunate, because creation abounds with resplendent wonders on every order of magnitude from the microcosm to the macrocosm that point beyond themselves to the beauty and unimaginable brilliance of the Creator of the cosmos.” —Ken Boa, in Conformed to His Image
