Who Gets to Narrate the Universe, Part 1
In the first of a three-part series, Pastor Chris looks at something that's making quite a splash in the news these days: the possibility of spacecraft and extraterrestrial visitors visiting the Earth. In recent on-the-record, public hearings in Washington D.C., various whistleblowers have alleged that the U.S. Government is in possession of alien "biologics," or bodies, and spacecraft of non-human origin-- allegedly of a vastly superior intelligence.
Rather than especially focusing on the what, why, and how of potential alien life visiting Earth, Pastor Chris shares that it's vital for Christians to set the narrative when it comes to the very big questions being asked. Whistleblowers and scientists and government officials and the media are raising very important existential questions, not to mention making assumptions, such as "Where did we come from and what is our place in the cosmos?" "Are we alone in the universe?" and "Humans will view alien intelligence like God."
In this first sermon of the set, Pastor Chris looks very carefully at God's story, The Divine Narrative, that gives meaning to the whole of creation.
