Z is for zenith #AtoZChallenge

For the A to Z in April Challenge 2019 I have picked some words, which are connected with physical space.

Z is for zenith and z-coordinate
The highest point in the sky
And another way to designate
Three dimensions on flat paper with X and Y.

A corner similar to x-,y- and z-axes

I found maths (or math, if you prefer) very difficult when it involved three dimensions. So let’s skip to zenith!

Having reached the last post in this challenge apart from the Reflections, which comes later, I suspect that hardly anyone has bothered with my links to Bible passages on Bible Gateway. The whole of the Bible is available online on that website in many different translations, which can be compared to help readers understand the meaning.

I find the Book of Psalms particularly helpful. Earlier on this blog a series of posts recorded the #psalmtweets I posted on Twitter. One psalm in particular reminds me of the word zenith – the highest point in the sky.

God is higher than the highest point! The paradox is that as St Paul pointed out to the people of Athens, He is also very close to us: ‘For in him we live and move and have our being.’ As some of your own poets have said, ‘We are his offspring.’ To read this in context please click the link. Acts 17:16-34.
