Doubtless you have heard this week about the enormous solar flares that lit up the northern hemisphere with amazing displays of Northen Lights. Had I been in Edmonton, I would have driven out to the country with my family and my camera to enjoy this phenomenom, and spend some time marveling at the wonder of Creation and God's handi-work. However, I am in Mexico, and the Auroras were not visible here. : (
Nonetheless, I have had time to ponder this and remember a great song by Canadian singer-songwriter, Bruce Cockburn. I introduced this song to a congregation a few years ago, and took some flack from a few congregants, some who objected to the quazi-secular source (although Cockburn is a professing Christian, albeit very Liberal in his views), while a few others thought it sounded panthiest. Most however, quite liked the song, and our worship band included it in our repetoire a some times since. After having written it, Cockburn said in an interview that "I wanted to write something like a psalm". Here is the song. Take some time to ponder it, and the amazing greatness of God the Creator, the Ancient of Days, and the "Lord of the Starfields".
FYI, this is part of the "Cool Licks" portion of the Blog, as mentioned in the title. Cheers!
