This is another live video of a talk, this time a popular and very passionate presentation by Louis Giglio on tour in the USA with musician Chris Tomlin. The first part of the talk is a guided tour of the universe, from the tiniest cell to the biggest star, with animated visual aids. Giglio’s shares his awe at the scale of the cosmos, and his enthusiasm is infectious. He goes on to bring the story nearer to home, our personal struggles, and the cross. The use of the ‘cross’ in biology and in the first image beamed back from the Hubble telescope feels a bit contrived and is proving unhelpful in that people are taking this as ‘evidence’ for God rather than something that is meaningful to Louis Giglio personally as a sign of God’s grace, much as rainbows might be to other people, which is I think how he intends it to be taken. Nevertheless, the first part of the DVD in particular is a great visual aid to help Christians think about how looking at the wonders of creation can provoke praise and worship.
