As far as the east is from the west… Physics begins with the difference between distance and displacement, and connects to how displacement of sin is the same for all, but God’s forgiveness covers all that distance. Then it continues with gravity and motion connecting gossip that may be in motion, and forces that may be needed to stop it. Continuing with forced, we follow the Israelite’s through the wilderness, pondering the forces needed to move water and drive out ‘ites’. It touches on torque, and relates it to broken relationships that may need the right force in the right direction, in order to bring healing. Then it returns to the wilderness with vectors and direction, and wandering, and being lost if off by even 1 degree. Static equilibrium and tension is connected to the tension that may be needed to keep us still and at peace in the palm of His hand. We connect the journeys of Paul and Peter to power, work, and momentum, and how the longer time spent with someone/something the greater the influence/velocity it has. Optics, and how an image is either magnified, reduced, virtual, or real is connected to our being made in the image of God.
