…the crew of Apollo 8 sent back this Christmas Eve broadcast. Here are Bill Anders, Jim Lovell, and Frank Borman reading from Genesis 1.
With all of the technological advances since 1968, the science community, and our country at large, has only managed to get further and further from the truth.
“In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through him, and without him was not any thing made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it…
And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory…and from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace.” John 1:1-18
The babe in the manger was no less than the Creator of it all.
Today, all of our extended family members will be gathered around mainland tables with other family members and we’re really missing everyone, so here’s a “Happy Thanksgiving” to all the families out there enjoying our Lord’s gracious bounty and rich togetherness. Also, a special shout out to my big brother, Jody, the second-best fisherman in the family and definitely the best photographer, whose birthday it is and who just posted this awesome video of some of his photos on Youtube that I wanted to share with the world (or at least the 3450 countries that have come across this blog). You can see more of his work at http://www.sierramountainphotography.com/
