Friday’s Factoid Week 18

Next week is a snow-week for our little star-gazers so while we’re hitting the ski-slopes you’ll have plenty of time to catch up on missed readings or to click around on some of these links .

For starters here’s a Flashback with a fun activity you will definitely want to try at home!

Secondly, click here, here, here and here for a sneak peak at the topic we’re going to be covering when we get back. The links are to posts on the constellations unit we did 6 years ago. Since that time I’ve modified my position somewhat, although I still don’t rule out the possibility that God placed the stars in such a way as to proclaim eternal truths about His Son, Jesus Christ. Psalm 119:89 does say, “Forever O Lord, your word is firmly fixed in the heavens.”

You’ll have to weigh the evidence for yourselves. A lot of Christians I respect very much stand on either side of the issue. It’s soooo important to give grace to grow in these areas of our faith.  I’ve heard godly pastors like John Piper who have spent decades faithfully preaching God’s sovereign work in creation, called an “evolutionist” by other Christians because of a comment made years ago in an interview hinting at an old-earth creation.  So while I may have been adamant 6 years ago that the “Gospel in the Stars” theory was fact, give me grace to grow!  I’m still learning!  In the mean time enjoy the links. Or better yet, bundle up, step outside and look up at those stars!
