I suppose some would say "in the big bang." I'm not sure it makes much difference how God does things. We should be more interested in why he does them. Leave the how to the scientists whom God has inspired. He has given each of us a different talent and ability, and we should be thankful for that. If all were pastors, who would be sitting in the pews? If all were teachers, who would be sitting in the classrooms? This could go on and on, but God has blessed us with a variety of callings. All we can do is obey God. Our first assignment is to ask God what his assignment for us is.
The word epiphany is from the Greek and refers to the experience of a sudden and amazing realization. Usually it’s applied to a scientific or philosophical/religious breakthrough, but it can apply in any situation in which a brilliant insight gives a person a different perspective on life or a problem s/he has been considering. For example, Archimedes’ famous shriek of “Eureka!” came as he was in the baths, contemplating yet again the difficulty of determining if a given mass would float.

Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10 Imagine a worship service, a sharing of scripture and interpretation, that went on from dawn until midday. How would you respond? In many of our mainline churches a worship service that last more than an hour risks negative comments to the pastor. “Worship was too long.” “I have other things to do today.” “Can’t you try to keep worship to an hour?”
Some time ago there was a series of programmes on BBC 2 on the recent history of the Catholic Church. The series was called "Absolute Truth", and one programme looked at Catholicism in the developing parts of the world. It studied the work of liberation theologians in Latin America, particularly Leonardo Boff and Oscar Romero.
