-Also: are there more grains of sand on earth or stars in the sky? Short version: Astronomers mathematically estimate that, in a mind-blowing testimony to the complexity and majesty of creation, there are more stars in the observable universe than sand on earth's beaches. And we must fill in the blanks with our imaginations to hypothesize magnitudes beyond that.
Our outro music is an original song by our friend Dcn. Jeremiah Webster, a poet and professor whose giftedness is rivaled by his humbleness. You can find his published works, including After So Many Fires, with a quick Google.
