On the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel Michelangelo has depicted the creation of Adam. In that famous picture we see the finger of God reaching out to touch the finger of Adam and so to bring him to life. The power that is in God is transferred by this touch to the body of the newly created human being and Adam becomes a living person. It is a personal touch that transforms a lifeless thing into a living, breathing human. The personal touch is the dynamic of life.
