Changing Perception at Advent

Next Step #130 – December 2, 2010

What changes? God? The Universe? Us? God – then, today and tomorrow – can we ever understand? The Armodoxy answer might surprise you.  Advent thoughts in preparation to Christmas – the shift in view and perception; Astronomers discover the universe is 3X bigger than previously thought while the fool discover too much too late (Luke 12). And the truth about lithium-ion batteries. It’s all in this podcast.
