What is Big and What is Small

When we teach Astronomical Observing from a Biblical View, the disciplines include setting up an observing sheet, recording what is seen, and a final step that requires some thinking: evaluating what has been done with a Biblical view in mind, i.e., the scene is not an accident but created and placed for discovery and observation. We give examples and show, but in the end the student or teacher has to do it for themselves.

The sketch below is the first of two that is at the following link: http://christworksministries.org/inspiration_big_and_small. If you have time, please take a look at it. In this case, I went one step further….I observe, give it some thought, observe again, give it some thought, put the 2 observations together, pray about it, then write a short story and lesson that links both observations. Even so, the observations, at first glance, are entirely different. It is a wonder to observe things, but when God enters the picture and suggests something to think about, it gets down right exciting. Hope you enjoy the sketch below, but please take a look at the linked page and see the both observations of the moon, which were 8 days apart, linked together in a common thread of thought and faith.

Part of the outreach and work is to maintain a site: www.cwm4him.org [or use christworksministries.org]. This site includes inspirational blogs, free downloadable courses, and a history of the charity organization. We aim to share the love of Jesus Christ, who has graciously extended his love to us. Our faith is a walking faith, so faith and works, as much as we are able, are married together.
