In this message we think about the God who sees all things. What does it mean that we are the seen?
“From heaven the Lord looks down
and sees all mankind; from his dwelling place he watches
all who live on earth—he who forms the hearts of all,
who considers everything they do.”
Psalm 33:13-15, NIV
"The windows of a spaceship casually frame miracles. Every 92 minutes, another sunrise: a layer cake that starts with orange, then a thick wedge of blue, then the richest, darkest icing decorated with stars. The secret patterns of our planet are revealed: Mountains bump up rudely from orderly planes, forests are green gashes edged with snow, rivers glints in the sunlight, twisting and turning like silvery worms. Continents splay themselves out whole, surrounded by islands sprinkled across the sea like delicate shards shattered egg shells."

“How many are your works, Lord! In wisdom you made them all… May the glory of the Lord endure forever; may the Lord rejoice in his works— he who looks at the earth,”
Psalm 104, 24, 31-32, NIV
“Are you any closer to being able to answer those questions having had this kind of experience?”
The CBC’s Peter Mansbridge to Commander Hadfield re: the meaning of life,
where we came from and how we got here.
“…We have a high priest who perfectly fits our needs: completely holy, uncompromised by sin, with authority extending as high as God’s presence in heaven itself… the Son, who is absolutely, eternally perfect… authoritative right alongside God…” “By his Son, God created the world in the beginning, and it will all belong to the Son at the end. This Son perfectly mirrors God, and is stamped with God’s nature. He holds everything together by what he says—powerful words!”
