So what are we seeing when we look up? The image at the top of this post shows a hazy band in the sky. This is the edgewise view into our own Milky Way galaxy. Our galaxy is about 100,000 light-years in a diameter, but it’s relatively flat, only about 10,000 light-years thick. So – if we’re looking in a dark sky – when we look toward the galactic disk, we see the starry band of the Milky Way.

And when we look up or down – away from the flat disk of the galaxy – we’re also seeing Milky Way stars. All of the stars we see with the eye alone belong to our Milky Way galaxy.

From the Concordia Children's Series, an arrangement by Alisha Schimm for unison or two-part children's voices of EARTH AND ALL STARS, a popular tune with school children. It has a light and sparkling piano accompaniment that gently supports children's voices without overpowering them. Herbert…

I’m going to circle back to the beginning of our Psalms for All Seasons class when we looked at Psalm 122, which the Revised Common Lectionary assigns to the First Sunday of Advent for Year A.

The psalm is written from the perspective of someone standing in Jerusalem, remembering the beginning of the long pilgrimage.

I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Now our feet are standing within your gates, O Jerusalem.
