In the Beauty

It’s an event so captivating that people travel from all over the world to view it for just a few minutes; 2 minutes and 38 seconds to be exact. A few, rare moments of natural wonder. The last total eclipse over Canada, in Manitoba, took place in 1979. It won’t take place there again for another 350 years. The next total eclipse to occur over Canadian soil won’t be until 2044. Its so amazing, so unusual that for a few moments we stop and stare (please wear protective eyewear). God’s glory is on tour in the skies, God’s craft on exhibit across the horizon is the way Eugene Petersen has interpreted the opening verses from Psalm 19.
