Bethlehem Star

Our church hosted a presentation last night on the Star of Bethlehem, and it was the most incredible "event" I've been to in a long time. I left thinking, "I can't wait to blog about this," yet my ability to communicate the majesty of it is so very insufficient. I can't even think of strong enough words to depict what I saw about God last night. A professor here in Texas has done extensive astronomical research on the star that led the wise men to Jesus, and the scientific realities of what he has found are astounding. I confess that I went to this event with merely a desire to learn, to gain more knowledge. The Star of Bethlehem is something that until last night I knew nothing about. So I wanted to know about it. But what resulted was something far more than knowledge....worship was the only response. I cannot believe how big God is. I've known that in my head, but to see just a tiny glimpse of His power in this way last night blows me away. You must check out this guy's website - - Don't be scared of it. I'm not a "science-y" type of thinker naturally, but it's very well-explained. There is a DVD that you can order from his website, and I urge everyone I know to buy it!!!! I'm not kidding. We ordered it as soon as we got home last night. My brother will eat it up. He doesn't know it yet, but he's the first one to borrow it from us. And my brother-in-law, Eric, who is always quite the thinker, will find it very interesting as well, I'm sure. We may have to purchase lots of copies. Your Christmas this year will be different if you get a copy of this presentation. The guy was very funny in person....I am not sure if the DVD will be as entertaining, but I'd guess so. It's produced by one of the producers of The Passion of the Christ. I hear Jim Caviezel loves it. =) Anyway, you have to see this!!!
