hello I'm an earthling

For the first time astronomers have discovered a planet outside our solar system that is potentially habitable, with Earth-like temperatures, a find researchers described Tuesday as a big step in the search for "life in the universe."

The planet is just the right size, might have water in liquid form, and in galactic terms is relatively nearby at 120 trillion miles away. But the star it closely orbits, known as a "red dwarf," is much smaller, dimmer and cooler than our sun.

So, friends, what do you think you might say to a 'being' from such a planet if there were such a being? What would be your first question if there was life out there? Do you think "they" might be asking the same question about this planet ?

Ah, yes, now I remember there's surely enough questions we have here about treating one another with love and respect to step back and closer home and do just that... ask questions about how we treat each other.
My home church in Ohio, First Community in Upper Arlington, gave us marbles with a gold band around the middle that says
" Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." I realize how that has influenced my life all along.

God abides
