Lent Day 18: WIGIAT? Time and Space

I am updating my blog each day during the 40 days of Lent, focusing on WIGIAT? or Where is God in all this?

Recently, there has been some really cool and amazing advancements in the world of Science. Actually, they're more like validations. Validations of the Higgs-Boson particle and also the discovery of light rays that validate theories about the Big Bang theory. All of these things are beyond my own understanding, but I still find them fascinating.

What is so interesting is thinking about something like time, having an origin, or thinking about how matter can be broken down into things that are so incredibly small, we don't even have a concept of it. It makes my mind start to wonder if we as humans and planets and stars aren't just building blocks to some much bigger organism, and other types of wonderments. At the same time, there are so many things that we do know, that then lead to theories and discoveries that drastically blow our own perspectives way, way out of proportion.

God is in this whole thing in what we take into these discoveries. We aren't called to know everything, and more importantly we aren't called to think we know everything and bury our heads in the sand. Instead, God is with us as we go forward into the unknown, calling us to the same lives of love, generosity, peace, and justice that bring God's grace through time and space.
