We are not disembodied spirits. God apparently values the material enough to endow it with the spiritual. That’s what the Incarnation is all about. We’ve come at this whole notion of the exaltation of the spirit by losing respect for the vehicle of the divine, which is the body. Where do we see God? We see God in nature and the people around us.
