Yours, Lord, is the greatness and the power
and the glory and the majesty and the splendor,
for everything in heaven and earth is yours.
Yours, Lord, is the kingdom;
you are exalted as head over all. —1 Chronicles 29:11
The cosmic perspective reminds us that in space, where there is no air, a flag will not wave—an indication that perhaps flag waving and space exploration do not mix. The cosmic perspective not only embraces our genetic kinship with all life on earth…as well as our atomic kinship with the universe itself. We are stardust. —Neil deGrasse Tyson, Letters from an Astrophysicist
With all this day brings, let me again spend time remembering my genetic kinship with all life on earth, my atomic kinship with the universe itself, and hear the hum of your spirit vibrate across the stardust. Amen. —The Reverend Dr. Katie Snipes Lancaster
