Well, we were considering the theological significance of red-shift this evening at nexus. We were grateful that Olbers’ paradox was finally resolved, and kept returning to ponder dark matter. Exploring the working of the heavens. Astrophysics.
We did decide we don’t think we should inflict ourselves on the universe, and go and take over other planets, since we are a long way from accepting the help we need to take care of our planet and respect and feed all the people on it.
But we need to wonder and be awed by creation, and God’s redemptive love. To recognise amazing universe, and the deeper we are allowed to delve into it, the more surprises we find.
But, beyond anything else, to be agents of God becoming known, recognised, and transforming people’s lives to bring heaven to earth. Grace.
