Jesus said to them, “Truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move, and nothing will be impossible for you.”  —Matthew 17:20

I believed that a successful lunar landing could, might, inspire humans around the world to believe that impossible goals were possible, that the hope for solutions to humanity’s problems was not a joke… we were three individuals who had drawn, in a kind of lottery, a momentous opportunity and a momentous responsibility… It suddenly struck me that that tiny pea, pretty and blue, was the Earth. I put up my thumb and shut one eye, and my thumb blotted out the planet Earth. I didn’t feel like a giant. I felt very, very small. —Neal Armstrong, “Sights on the Way to the Moon,” Oxford Book of Exploration.

Let us see the wide horizon beyond this blue-marbled Earth, so that our own small way of living might be made holy, held as sacred, suspended in time. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
