In our reading today, perhaps the most amazing miracle recorded in the Bible is recounted. God stopped the sun and the moon.

I have a scientific background, so this miracle is difficult to understand, if I think about it without the lens of faith. I mean…we think we have learned something of how the planets spin on their axes and rotate around the sun. So without looking at this event from the perspective of faith, it doesn’t seem possible, does it? 

But when we remember that God is the One who created the planets and the solar system…indeed, the universe and all that is in it…well, then we have to conclude that surely, God could easily stop the entire cosmos if He wanted to. 

There is a good, concise article you might like to read on this miracle at
