Planetary Travel and Disciples of Jesus

A new post coming Friday, October 8, 2021

Leaving the planet, Earth that is, bound for a destination somewhere in the galaxy–what will that mean for the faith of disciples on board?

More than wild speculation, the reality of leaving the planet builds each year and each decade as technology evolves. Two generations will pass. Disciples of Jesus may find themselves living out their faith on a new heavenly body. Let’s not be unprepared for any opportunity the Father has prepared for those who love him and are called according to his purpose. Jules Verne, Isaac Asimov, Frank Herbert, Arthur Clarke, Robert Heinlein, H.G. Wells, Ray Bradbury and thankfully C.S. Lewis might have insights to inform us–imagine if there really was a place like Middle Earth.

I look forward to seeing your comments and suggestions after the blog posts on Friday.
