God bless planet Earth

“And God bless America” is okay, I guess. But honestly, I would prefer something more like, “And God bless all of Creation.” Or at least, “… planet Earth.” When you limit God’s grace to a particular set of artificially established national borders within a tiny speck of a rock within a tiny solar system within the Milky Way galaxy—one of more than 200 billion estimated galaxies in the universe, it tends to diminish the all-encompassing absolute elegance of God’s grace. It politicizes it and makes it small and cheap and worthless, I think.
