Make a Joyful Noise

Just returned from our kids' primary (elementary) school where I made a presentation to the whole school assembly. This month's Christian value is creativity and I was asked to help the kids experience awe and wonder at the amazing creativity in the ocean. We looked at four areas where we see God's creativity: diversity, size, sound, and colour. The kids especially were amazed by the sounds. I found a great website where you can listen to many marine sounds.

I really like Psalm 148 which makes clear that it is all creatures that are praising God.

Praise the Lord from the earth,
    you great sea creatures and all ocean depths,
lightning and hail, snow and clouds,
    stormy winds that do his bidding,
you mountains and all hills,
    fruit trees and all cedars,
10 wild animals and all cattle,
    small creatures and flying birds,
11 kings of the earth and all nations,
    you princes and all rulers on earth,
12 young men and women,
    old men and children.
