Dear Neighbor,

Perhaps you have seen some of the recent pictures from the Webb Space Telescope. Here is one of them depicting thousands of galaxies never seen before.1

Scripture has a lot to say about how these galaxies, and in fact the entire universe, came into existence. Here are some of the verses that discuss creation:

“In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.” (Genesis 1:1)

“Thus says Jehovah, thy Redeemer, and thy Former from the belly: I am Jehovah, who makes all things; who stretches out the heavens alone; who spreads out the earth from Myself.” (Isaiah 44:24)

“I have made the earth, and have created man upon her; I, with My hands, have stretched out the heavens, and all their army I have commanded.” (Isaiah 45:12)

“Thou [God] hast created all things, and by Thy will they are, and were created.” (Revelation 4:11)

New Church doctrine has a lot more to say about how the Lord is the creator of all things. If you would like to learn about it, please feel free to give me a call (610-756-6140). And if you are looking for a religious community please consider joining us in person on Sundays at 10:00 am or watching a church service online at https://kemptonnewchurch.org/Worship/Services.php.

Best wishes!


Rev. Brett D. Buick
