BELIEF IN A CREATOR GOD:
This article discusses the meaning and
implications of belief in a creator God – stated in the Nicene Creed as “we believe in one God, the Father
almighty, maker of heaven and earth, of all things visible and invisible” [emphasis mine]. Three broad areas are addressed – creatio
ex nihilo, creatio continua, and the problem of theodicy. (In an article of this length, however, one
cannot address all the issues raised.)

A New Website Looking at the Creation
Another website that my wife, Eva, has created is
entitled Heaven's Reflections (www.heavens-reflections.org). Her website presents a fresh look at the physical world and life around us. The content is
built on the Bible-based assumption that God is behind everything that exists.
The website articles examine everyday phenomena and draw
from them, based on the Bible, lessons for physical and spiritual life. They are organized under three headings
– times and seasons, natural phenomena, and living things.
May a new look at things we take for granted bring us to a sense of wonder, awe, and
gratitude at the marvels around us. May we come to recognize the sacred and divine in all things and begin to feel
at one with the Almighty God and all of creation.
