This lecture gives us a small hint of the cosmic work of God throughout history. A fuller understanding of why God does what He does helps to cure us from our constant self focus.
This lecture always has a lot of questions. My lack of adherence to a literal seven days often gets me in trouble with somebody. I'm not dogmatic and I hope people can see past that to view God's purpose in describing creation. He didn't have to include that but He did for a purpose.
Likewise with miracles, I hope that any potential discussion of spiritual gifts in the New Testament doesn't put a hold on the purpose God uses them. I don't think they've ceased but I do believe there can be vast periods of time without them. I'm on the fence of whether we should seek to see them. I'm not sure if it is a sign of displeasure from God that He isn't validating His revelation. I really just don't know.
Joshua Torrey is the sole proprietor of Torrey Gazette (don't tell Alaina) and the fullness of its editorial process. That means everything wrong with TG can legitimately be blamed on him.
