Eclipse glasses. What's the big deal anyway?
The 2017 eclipse wasn't an earth-shattering event for me at first. I tend to brush off anything that gets hyped. But as the eclipse date got closer, I started to buy in. And then I couldn't easily find glasses. Go figure.

Only God is light. Only Jesus was blameless. Like it or not, we’re all related to Adam and Eve, and it’s a learning curve to fall under God’s authority. We don’t naturally submit to anything or anyone. But submitting to God’s authority is the only way.
