God of all blessings, source of all life, giver of all grace: We thank you for the mystery of creation, for the beauty that the eye can see, for the joy that the ear may hear, for the unknown that we cannot behold filling the universe with wonder, for the expanse of space that draws us beyond the definitions of our selves. For these, and all blessings, we give you thanks, eternal, loving God, through Jesus Christ we pray. Amen. Read more: 2011 INTERACTIVE CONNECTIONS

  5. 5. As found on Wikipedia, a capstone is literally, “one of the finishing or protective stones that form the top of an exterior masonry wall or building.” For DDBC, an opportunity to apply what you have learned from many different areas, and culminate to make a final project that shows off how you are integrating technology in your ministry. It is meant to be your “crowning achievement, point, element, or event” and “the final stroke; the culmination or acme.”Copyright 2011 INTERACTIVE CONNECTIONS
