Since Orson Welles’ classic 1938 production of War of the Worlds, Americans have been fascinated by the thought that there is some kind of intelligent life on other planets. It may be just curiosity, but recent developments among origin of life researchers indicate we may be looking for answers to our deepest questions from life beyond our planet. Certain well-respected scientists are now suggesting that because the chances of life emerging from non-living sources is so incredibly low, possibly life was brought to earth by extra-terrestrial beings!!!

Our interest in life forms beyond our earth may be motivated by a longing for answers to the problems we struggle with every day, but don’t seem any closer to solving.

Why is it so hard to get along with each other?
So often life seems meaningless. Is there something we’re missing?
Why aren’t we having more fun when we work so hard at it?
How do we face death? Is it only the end?

Christmas is the Christian celebration of the invasion of the Infinite. The One who created life makes himself known to us in understandable and relatable ways. His message is simple and clear. He not only made the human race, he gives our lives meaning, purpose and above all, hope in the face of death. We don’t need to look for aliens in the far corners of the universe. We need only journey to the manger scene in Bethlehem to find the answers we so desperately need.
