Larger Than Life

“I hope I never recover, that I can maintain what I feel now. I don’t want to lose it. It’s so much larger than me and life.” After landing from his rocket voyage into space this week, William Shatner became emotional as he described shooting through what he called the blue line of atmosphere that separates us from the blackness of space. This thin blue covering and then black space, he said, like life and death. It made him realize how vulnerable and fragile we are here on earth. As Shatner (Star Trek’s Captain Kirk) floated in the dead blackness of space, he saw how unique we really are as a planet. His words made me think, though he doesn’t call himself a Christian, it doesn’t keep him from receiving a message from God.

  1. Lovely reminder. My hearing isn’t very sharp anymore so I was happy to read the words I missed. Such a lovely reminder by our Lord. He loves us all very much. Thanks Sheila!
