Episode 129 recounts Walt's adventure of seeing a total solar eclipse from northern Ohio in April of 2024. The episode explores the comparison of seeing photos of a total solar eclipse with actually seeing one live. The comparison is extended for those of us who believe in Christ. We know of Him incompletely in this life. What will it be like to see Him, with our own eyes, face-to-face?
