The Rocks are Crying Out

We have a boy in our church, someone I’ve mentioned before, who is not quite right in the head. (This is due to a brain injury he suffered several years ago.) However, we’ve all noticed that he is often more right in the heart than all the rest of us put together.

This morning we were singing the closing hymn–well, really more of a peppy gospel song from the turn of two centuries ago–the and aforementioned boy was singing along with some dance moves. Adult A’s hand reached over to calm him down, and –what can I say?–the rocks started crying out. Well, at least I my rocky heart started crying.

 

This NASA/ESA Hubble Space Telescope image of the cluster Westerlund 2 and its surroundings has been released to celebrate Hubble’s 25th year in orbit and a quarter of a century of new discoveries, stunning images and outstanding science. The image’s central region, containing the star cluster, blends visible-light data taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys and near-infrared exposures taken by the Wide Field Camera 3. The surrounding region is composed of visible-light observations taken by the Advanced Camera for Surveys.

When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers,
    the moon and the stars, which you have set in place,
 what is man that you are mindful of him,
    and the son of man that you care for him?

In other news, did you hear that scientists have discovered this week that there are 10 times as many galaxies in the universe as they thought there were last week?  How cool is that?  Of course, it hurts one’s head to think about it but that news item fit in perfectly with my Sunday school lesson today which resulted in some artwork combining Genesis 1 and Psalm 8.  The kids make some cool pictures, but I posted them on the bulletin board and forgot to take a photo.
