The Interview:

Q: 4: Australian poet, Les Murray, who was also Catholic, saw nature as the embodiment of God’s presence on earth. How do you see nature through your faith?

God is supremely loving, good, creative, and generous. Nature—from galaxies to subatomic particles and everything in between—is God’s creation. Nature is a proof of God, revealing him but not fully representing him (just as my poem is proof of my existence and reveals me but doesn’t fully represent me). There is broad, deep, universal order in nature, and everything is related. Only a Creator could make that happen.
