How big
From The Story We Find Ourselves In by Brian McLaren:
How can we imagine a God whose power, love, whimsy, and wisdom imagined, calibrated, and created a universe like ours...? How can we comprehend such a God? After all, as you well know, we humans are little more than hairless primates, a small twig on a small branch of the tree of life, hunks of living meat with three-pound brains suspended on bone and packaged in skin, born naked and crying and afraid and often dying much the same, and in between, self-impressed beyond all reason, only on occasion slightly awake to our smallness and frailty and dignity and wonder" (24).

How's that for some perspective?
