Theme: Creation points to God the creator.
1. For part one of this episode, you were challenged to look for God’s fingerprints in small places. Psalm 8:3 points you up to the skies to examine the moon and stars. What facts do you know about the stars and moon?
2. When Moses and the people of Israel had to leave Mt. Sinai and start the trip to the promised land, Moses was probably feeling nervous. He asked God to prove his faithfulness. Moses wanted to see God in all his glory. But God knew that no human could look on him and live, so he agreed to cover Moses with his hand This way, Moses would see only part of God’s glory (Exodus 33:12-24). Just that glimpse was enough for Moses to know that God was faithful and all-powerful. As you listen to today’s episode, think about the glimpses God gives you of his power and faithfulness in his creation.
“When I look at your heavens, the work of your fingers, the moon and the stars, which you have set in place …”
3. The Professor says that “Order-discovering with science is like putting together a big picture _______.”
In this episode the kids find evidence of God through their science fair research.
Johannes Kepler is a famous scientist. He points out, “The chief aim of all investigations of the external world should be to discover the rational order and harmony which has been imposed on it by God and which he revealed to us in the language of mathematics.”
Why study math? Why study science? As Kepler says, that is how we get to see God’s order in planetary motion, in the atom, in DNA, in waves, and in the forces at work around them. All of creation has rules to follow. Once we discover them, we see that they point to God as the creator.

“Let All Things Now Living” by Katherine Davis
1. Let all things now living
a song of thanksgiving
to God the Creator triumphantly raise,
who fashioned and made us,
protected and stayed us,
who guides us and leads to the end of our days.
His banners are o’er us,
his light goes before us,
a pillar of fire shining forth in the night,
till shadows have vanished
and darkness is banished,
as forward we travel from light into light.
2. His law he enforces;
the stars in their courses
and sun in its orbit obediently shine;
the hills and the mountains,
the rivers and fountains,
the deeps of the ocean proclaim him divine.
We too should be voicing
our love and rejoicing;
with glad adoration a song let us raise,
till all things now living
unite in thanksgiving:
to God in the highest, hosanna and praise!
