The Feast of the Pentecost

There Go the Ships; There Sports the Leviathan

Psalm 104: 26

Though leviathan is a name for an evil sea monster in the Old Testament, it also seems to mean any large sea animal, such as a whale.

The writers of the Psalms make clear that God created the largest of sea animals so that he could enjoy their playfulness.

At the time the Psalms were written, most sea-faring ships (on the Mediterranean) were smaller than whales. The people were very sure that they could not make objects as big as God could.

So this is a good opportunity to make tiny ships (triremes are historically appropriate, but any ship or boat is fine) and huge sea animals.

Put up a sea and sky background with the banner, and create!
