The Nicene Creed and what is unseen

"We believe in one God the Father Almighty, Maker of heaven and earth, and of all that is seen and unseen . . ." (Nicene Creed, 4th century) When the congregation repeated these ancient words this morning I thought about our programs on the universe last week at Lakeside. Dark matter. Dark energy. One speaker said there are 10 billion galaxies close enough for the light to get to us, the other said there may be a trillion galaxies. But who's counting. I know the Creator of all things seen and unseen, visible and invisible.

One of the speakers got so excited he shouted, "Hallelujah, can I hear an Amen" while talking about the 300 billion stars in the Milky Way, our galaxy.
