God of Wonders

Banff, Alberta,Canada

ELOHIM
God of Creation

At our church Second Baptist in Houston, our pastor Dr. Ed Young began a new sermon series last week, The Names of God. The first name in the series is ELOHIM, meaning the God of Creation. It was a moving message. It was extra special that during the sermon he had his son and daughter-in-law, Cliff and Danielle Young of the contemporary Christian musical group Caedmon's Call, sing "God of Wonders" which they assisted in writing. Here is the sermon in its entirety.





God of Wonders



This song was requested as a wake up call from NASA by Commander Rick Husband on board the Space Shuttle Columbia STS-107 just a few days before the tragedy:
Good morning...looking out the windows, you can really tell He is a God of wonders.
