Encouragement circles around…

  I wanted to share with you an encouraging email we received from an attendee of one of our church seminars.  At this particular event, I was teaching my Genesis Series starting with Genesis chapter one. Below is the email (the name and location were withheld by request). Hi Rich, Thank you so much for teaching during the Sunday school hour at our church this past month. I hope you can come back again if you have the time. There are so many more things I want to...

The Beauty of Water

The Beauty of Water

Posted on Apr 21, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  After a recent seminar tour, we discovered that spring is a great time to travel through the Pacific Northwest, especially when they have had an abundance of rain, along with a little snow. It makes for LOTS of water!  We had the privilege of stopping to see several waterfalls as we journeyed through the Columbia River Gorge.  They were very full and exceptionally beautiful, even in the rain!  It was also fascinating to see the immense amount of moss growing on the...

Southwest Geology Tour Sights- Upheaval Dome

Southwest Geology Tour Sights- Upheaval Dome

Posted on Apr 20, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  On the college field trip that Mary Jo & I are leading, we see many great sites, several of which leave us with more questions than answers. One such example is: what caused the unusual formation called Upheaval Dome? Was it a meteor that slammed into the earth at this spot? Perhaps it was a fluid like bulge of a salt dome pushing it up from below? Is it a volcanic outburst? Perhaps there were giant gophers in the past that dug this immense mile wide hole? All of...

A STEP BACK INTO TIME

A STEP BACK INTO TIME

Posted on Apr 19, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  Two weeks ago, Marilyn and I had the opportunity to teach at a Christian Academy in Vernal, Utah and a Sunday morning and evening at a church. Since Saturday was a free day, we went on a hunting trip, looking for a picnic and campground that I fondly remembered as a young boy. Sounds simple enough, but the last time I was there was over 60 years ago, and so my memory juices were really put to the test. I didn’t end up finding the campground … it is no longer...

Old and New… no matter

Old and New… no matter

Posted on Apr 14, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  Our recent travels through northwest Idaho, western Washington, and south central Washington brought us to a variety of different church buildings and congregations. Some churches are old and nostalgic and some were new and technologically savvy, but one thing remained the same—the need for TRUTH. Everyone, whether old or young, rich or poor, educated or uneducated, living in a small rural community or residing in the big city, needs to know the love of God and...

Costa Rican Creation Tour Continues

Costa Rican Creation Tour Continues

Posted on Apr 11, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  In one of my previous blogs about the Costa Rican Discover Creation Tour, I left you in the misty rain of a cloud forest.  Wet, yes. However, it was an experience our intrepid explorers actually really enjoyed. The rain forests of this major ecosystem need the rain to remain so beautifully green and awe-inspiring.   Afterwards we took in the National Museum, where we were able to see and experience aspects of the country’s history…...

From Youth To Retirees – Something for Everyone

From Youth To Retirees – Something for Everyone

Posted on Apr 7, 2017 in Blog Posts, Stepaneks from the Front | 0 comments

  I want to continue my recollection from recent tours… started in my last blog.  Our Idaho tour began Thursday evening (March 27th) with a night of teaching for the AWANA group at Cambridge Bible Church. They had been studying the beginning of Genesis and wanted to continue the theme, so it was very fitting to use my teaching on Genesis chapter 3.  I only had to make a few alterations of my usual program for these young people, and then I was off teaching.  The...

MUSEUMS AND MEMORIES

  Thinking back on a recent seminar tour, the tour I’m remembering began (March 10th) with a homeschool conference in the Salt Lake City, UT area. The beginning event was a museum tour of the North American Museum of Ancient Life in Lehi, UT.  Rich gave a tour and offered a creation perspective on the museum’s exhibits.  It was very well attended, over 70 students and adults, with all the participants attentively listening during the 2 hour presentation....

Bunk Beds and Bible Conference!

  We spent about ten days, a few weeks ago, at Cornerstone Bible Institute in Hot Springs, SD.  Rich was the speaker for the first week of their annual Bible Conference. During the 19 hours of regularly scheduled time, and an additional two hours of optional teaching (always looking for a little more time), he worked through Genesis chapters one to three, plus three other sessions – which included:  The Star of Bethlehem, The Creation of Angels, and Evolution,...

Costa Rica Tour- The Learning Experience

Costa Rica Tour- The Learning Experience

Posted on Mar 28, 2017 in Blog Posts, Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  Teaching on the 2017 Costa Rica Tour took many forms — on the bus, in the field, and in several evening lectures, and even within these formats they differed to a degree. To the right, Mary Jo is answering a common evolutionary taunt. She is explaining how you can get all the various skin colors from blackest black to whitest white in a single family… simply starting with parents of medium skin color. That coupled with the dispersion at the Tower of Babel...

A STEP INTO TEXAS HISTORY

A STEP INTO TEXAS HISTORY

Posted on Mar 17, 2017 in Blog Posts, Johnsons from the Front | 0 comments

  This past January, during our winter Discover Creation tour through New Mexico, Texas and Oklahoma, Marilyn and I were able to “step back” into part of Texas history when we had the opportunity to teach at the Independence Baptist Church located in the small town of Independence, Texas. The Independence Baptist Church was organized in August 1839. Since it was begun, the church has never ceased to meet, making it the oldest continuously serving Baptist church in...
