The Center

"The Sun, with all the planets revolving around it, and depending on it, can still ripen a bunch of grapes as though it had nothing else in the Universe to do."
~ Galileo Galilei (1564-1642)
The ancient learned men believed that the earth was the center of the universe; that the sun and all the heavens revolved around earth. It was quite controversial to buck this opinion. Now we know that the sun is the anchor of our small portion of the universe. The orbits of our planets are centered around the sun. It brings warmth to the earth and seas so fish may multiply in the oceans, crops may grow in the soil and life may continue. Yet even with these important tasks it still treats man to the glorious colors of sunrise and sunset daily. How can one not believe in God?
