Frozen Planet

A new series has started on the BBC, following in the footsteps of David Attenborough's previous offerings, he now turns his cameras to the coldest areas of the globe in "Frozen Planet".

Stunning visuals once again combined with the dulcid tones of Attenborough to form the first hour long programme that went out on Wednesday night. Combine it with HD and it's a treat for the eyes.

I was struck by the beauty of the planet that we live on. The incredible thing about these documentaries is that often they are showing landscapes and environments rarely seen by human eyes or captured on camera.

One can look at the stunning beauty of the world unfolded by Attenborough and his team and appreciate it for that, simple beauty. But add a creator into the mix and it takes on a whole new dimension. The hand of a God who sculpts the icebergs and directs the ocean currents, who tames the animals in their wild ways and sets the laws of physics on their path to create and guide the natural wonders on display.

There is a verse in the Bible that talks about how if we as humanity fail in our role at worshipping God then "the rocks will cry out" declaring the wonder and awe of the creator God. 

Well if the Frozen Planet is anything to go by the Earth is doing a pretty good job of proclaiming the glory of a creator God. 

Perhaps we need to up our game.
