Surrounded by the miraculous

The poet Walt Whitman once said that we are surrounded by the miraculous but don’t recognise it. Science has increased our sense of awe, as it unfolds the marvels of the Universe; but many assume that because we know how far it is to a given planet, we have, therefore, grasped all its significance. That’s a lot different from Dr. Werner Von Braun, the person primarily responsible for putting man on the Moon, who said that for every answer his scientific research produced it opened up four new questions; and that’s what eventually caused him to accept that there is a mind behind the Universe, immeasurably greater than anything we can understand.
The Bible says, ‘The heavens declare the glory of God.’ And regardless of what we may think, it’s ‘In Him that we live, move and have our being.’
