Every bit of the creation is sustained by the life of God, is sacrament, and is engaged with the whole of creation. Each moment of life can be and, if we are committed to the humility of Christ, must be Eucharist. The early Syrian church recognized this fact and allowed all who wished it to receive the Eucharist, whether or not they were baptized. This church understood that in Eucharist sacred time and linear time coinhere, and the parousia is now. Sacraments of the Christian churches must not be allowed to exclude or devalue our interrelatedness with the creation. On the contrary, sacramental life should enhance reverence for and relatedness within the creation.
