Transcendence, Colossians, and the Lunar Landing

Preacher: Ben Phillips

Yesterday marked the 50th anniversary of the first lunar landing. Given that Niel Armstrong is a native of Ohio we have extra reason to celebrate! Remembering that momentous occasion and the utterly unique impact it had on the world, demonstrates a clear sense of transcendence to us. This is much like the unique and mind-blowing description of Jesus Christ in Colossians chapter 1. And just as there was conflict behind the lunar landing, there was also conflict behind the reason for Paul writing Colossians, and ultimately the revelation of true hope, the mystery of Christ and his glory for we who trust in him.
