The photos of the cosmos being taken by the James Webb Space Telescope inspire me to wonder while also inspiring me to theological reflection about our place in creation.


This article is a good example of what such reflection might look like.




Prayers for you as you negotiate our world of beauty and pain this week.

This landscape of ???mountains??? and ???valleys??? speckled with glittering stars is actually the edge of a nearby, young, star-forming region called NGC 3324 in the Carina Nebula. Captured in infrared light by NASA???s new James Webb Space Telescope, this image reveals for the first time previously invisible areas of star birth. Image Credit: (NASA, ESA, CSA, and STScI)
