Dear Church family,
As we were not able to meet today, I thought this would encourage you and remind you God’s greatness. This picture was taken several years ago and here is the brief info about this image:
Welcome to The World At Night. Sharing the night sky seen around the world, this view from Monument Valley, USA includes a picturesque foreground of famous buttes. Buttes are composed of hard rock left behind after water eroded away the surrounding soft rock. The two buttes on the image left are known as the Mittens, while Merrick Butte is on the right. Recorded in 2007 December, planet Mars is at the left of the skyscape, a glowing beacon of orange that is the brightest object in the frame. To the right of Mars lies the constellation of Orion. Betelgeuse is the reddish star near the center and the Belt of Orion and the Orion Nebula are farther right. Finally, the bright blue star Rigel appears above Merrick Butte in this stunning view of The World At Night.

I was reminded what the Bible states yesterday about the amazing constellation of Orion.
Job 38:31, “Can you bind the cluster of Pleiades, or loose the belt of Orion?”
What a profound question given to us by God Himself!
Here’s what the prophet Amos states… “It is the Lord who created stars and the Pleiades and Orion. He turns darkness into morning and day into night. He draws water up from the oceans and pours it down as rain on the land. The Lord is his name.”
