Bigger Than Us
This "Earthrise" photo taken from Apollo 8 in 1968 is among my favorites. (I make no secret of the fact that I'm fascinated by space.)
It fits with my image of God.
I know some people have very personal imagery of God: walking with Jesus; walking side by side with the Lord; the Good Shepherd.
For me God is BIG.
I love that this picture was taken on Christmas Eve. It's another reminder that we are a small part of a much larger picture: That God, creator of this vast universe, cared enough to send a child to lead us. And that I, and millions of others around the world, have chosen to follow this child as a model of how to live and how to love.
