Some thoughts from Celtic Spirituality:
The presence of God is within all peoples.
Creation itself is sacramental, the Living Word of God
If we deny our humanity, via shame, guilt, fear, anxiety, or religiosity, we do not discover and release our Truest Selves.
All the world is God's Dwelling Place.
