The earth is the LORD’S and all that is in it, *
the world and all who dwell therein.
For it is God who founded it upon the seas *
and made it firm upon the rivers of the deep.
“Who can ascend the hill of the LORD? *
and who can stand in the holy place?” Psalm 24:1-3
Who can stand in the holy places?
seeking beyond themselves
carrying the world in their hearts.
