The summer solstice occurs when the sun is at its highest point above the equator and takes place between 20-22 June in the northern hemisphere. ‘Solstice’ is derived from a Latin word meaning ‘the sun stands still’, because the sun appears to stop on the horizon before night closes in. This year a new moon will also rise on June 20, an infrequent astronomical occurrence.
Now what you worship as something unknown, I am going to proclaim to you:
‘The God who made the world and everything in it is the Lord of heaven and earth
and does not live in temples built by human hands.
And He is not served by human hands, as if He needed anything.
Rather, He himself gives everyone life and breath and everything else. …..
“For in him we live and move and have our being.”
As some of your own poets have said, “We are his offspring.”
A poor life this, if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
