Neither their silver nor their gold will be able to save them on the day of the Lord's wrath; in the fire of his passion the whole earth shall be consumed;
for a full, a terrible end he will make of all the inhabitants of the earth.

Went to bed last night after viewing a photo from a space probe Cassini passing over the planet Saturn. It was one of my Wow moments of the day. I woke up this morning to the news of scientists disagreeing about whether or not a gigantic asteroid would hit the earth within the next couple decades. And politicians were still arguing. There are days when I find myself humming a show tune, the one which goes..."For I've grown a little leaner, Grown a little colder, Grown a little sadder,Grown a little older, And I need a little angel sitting on my shoulder, need a little Christmas now." God has the power to raze the world and start over again as he wills. There is so much left to discover in our amazing universe. There is also alot of good reasons to wipe the slate clean and start all over again. We need a little Christmas. Right this very minute. We a need an Easter too. So Merry Christmas - Christ is born! Happy Easter - Christ is Risen! Now let's start to live today like people who have heard and believe the Good News.

Lord God, Fill us with your good news so that we might be your holy people. Amen.
