I think my favorite part of last Sunday’s Story for All was the super-imposed images of the three tall mountains: Mount Everest, Mauna Kea in Hawaii (measured from the sea floor to summit), and Olympus Mons on Mars. Mauna Kea is taller than Everest if measured from the sea floor. Olympus Mons is almost three times taller than both. It is 14 miles from base to summit, twice as high as normal jets fly. And it’s on Mars! The children (and adults) seemed astonished! This is one of those seeds for religious and spiritual thinking, the wonder and mystery that often prompts us to ask: how?
