Revelation Friday Five

From RevGalBlogPals:

With this Sunday's gospel reading in mind, that wonderful revelation of Christ to the companions on the Emmaus road. I wonder where you might have been surprised by God's revelation recently.

So with no further waffle I offer you this weeks Friday 5:

How has God revealed him/herself to you in a:

1. Book
I am reading a very inspiring little book right now--Anthony de Mello's The Way to Love. I am constantly finding new understandings of the world and how I relate to it and God. It's challenging, asking me to rethink some of the concerns that I have always had.

I'm a big fan of classic films.... most recently I rented Imitation of Life from 1959. It's a beautiful film about people and relationships, and also racism in the U.S.

Lots of films come to mind... One of my favorites for revealing truth is Finding Neverland. I love how life and death become intermingled at the end. There's also a great foreign film, Children of Heaven, and then Everything Is Illuminated.

I think I better stop at four...

3. Song
I just wrote about this.... check out my post on Natasha Bedingfield's Wild Horses below here.

4. Another person
That's a tough one... I have a lot of support! I'll have to point to my recent stay with the Sisters, who accept all as they are and offer them love and respect. In answer to the "bonus" below, their way of opening their home to me was humbling--I felt so welcome and loved.

5. Creation
With God, all things are possible, right? The other day, it was about 80 degrees, the wind was howling, and there was a tornado watch and warning issued in the area. I looked out my office window--where the sun was shining. And it was raining. At the same time. God makes me laugh.

Bonus answer: your choice- share something encouraging/ amazing/ humbling that has happened to you recently! See above, question 4.
