Walking Encyclopedia

In teaching step 3 of the lesson, “God is Revealed”, which is based on Psalm 19:7-11, think about situations in life where you need instructions in order to be successful. For example, when I need to do something around the house for which I am inexperienced, I will Google “How to …” and read about doing the task.

To be successful in life’s situations I need to read God’s Word and know it. I have a friend who says, “If you know anything better than you know the Bible, then you don’t know the Bible well enough!” Consider asking your class that question, but start the discussion first by asking, Do you know someone who is a walking encyclopedia?

One of your points in the Powerpoint was: Light travels about 9,000,000,000,000 miles in one year
Correction: One light year (1 ly) is the distance that light travels in one year. In one second light travels 186,282 miles or 299,793 km. Since there are in a tropical year about 31,569,260 seconds, we can find the length of a light year by multiplying velocity by time to give 5.88 trillion miles (9.46 trillion km).
Of course this is an American trillion (9 zeros) not an English trillion. (18 zeros)

In England a lightyear has a value of 5.88 BILLION miles (9 zeros)

Note that the quoted figure for the speed of light is ONLY in a TOTAL VACUUM! source: also:

Thank you for continuing your blog and providing thoughts to help us think about what we are going to say when we are in front of the class on Sunday. I don't use Powerpoint but I do read your presentation. I really appreciate it.
