“Long Centuries ago in a glowing moment of spiritual exaltation the Psalmist exclaimed:

Thou hast set my feet in a large room!”

This evening this ancient statement seems contemporary, and singularly fitting and appropriate. We are gathered in a vast amphitheatre, hewn by the march and
retreat of giant glaciers; moulded by the melting flame of volcanic fires; and sculptured by titanic and elemental forces of wind and torrent, through countless centuries of time. We are seated in a veritable Cathedral of Immensities, its roof fretted with golden fire – the stars; “The forget-me-nots of the angels sprinkled in the infinite meadows of hearve”; its walls the towering and encompassing hills, rock-ribbed and ancient as the sun; its pillars those massive lime stone ledges whose shadows lean against the sky.
This is a time and place for high thinking, for reflection and for meditation. We keep here a rendezvous with Life, and, amid the sublimity and majesty of our surroundings, we may, I hope, be spiritually aware of:

“A presence that disturbs us with the joy
Of elevated thoughts; a sense sublime
Of something far more deeply interfused,
Whose dwelling is the light of setting suns,
And the blue sky, and in the mind of man.”
