Editors’ Note

In this edition we take you from the depths of the ocean to eternity above and beyond.

We begin, however, on solid ground, with a portrait of a pastor during the American Revolution. To be faithful to one’s conscience at such times can be costly—and an inspiration for the rest of history.

Next we have a pair of articles that bring immortality to bear. The first is a piece on a jellyfish that never seems to die. The second, on the one work of men and women that will never pass away.

We end at the beginning, the beginning of all things: the incredibly good news of who God is and what he’s been up to since before time.

Our favorites in Wonder on the Web are beekeeping links. Creation and humankind working together—very much, we imagine, as God intended.
