Exploring the Galaxies
For centuries, the Psalmist David, and astronomers alike, have suggested that the natural world is a portal to the transcendent (Ps. 19:1). But it has always been difficult for the average earth dweller to grasp the breadth of such assertions—that is, until world-class telescopes like the Hubble Space Telescope started showing us a universe we never dreamed of! Astronomer Jennifer Wiseman will share the latest astronomical images and discoveries and have a conversation with Louie Giglio about how galaxies, stars, and planets form, what they can teach us about God, and how good science strengthens our faith.
This is an incredible video. I'm currently taking an astronomy class, so I was able to actually understand a lot of what Jennifer was talking about, but also I'm amazed every day in that class by the vastness, the creativity and the masterful artwork of His universe. What an enormous and incredible God, that he would create so much beauty for our enjoyment, for us to discover and marvel at. It's almost as if he's just waiting for us to build bigger and better telescopes and cameras because he has so much more to show us!
After viewing this video and processing through the possibilities of what God is allowing us to discover, I am absolutely falling more in love with our marvelous creator. I never thought that a random General Biology class assignment could provide this amount of awe appreciation and humility in me. Being a Fine Art & Film double major, I can now say that my socks have been rocked in the astronomical world. Praise God for the construction of such times as these that we perceive as random.
& thank you Giglio and Wiseman for this clip of spiritual mind expansion .
