Welcome to the Discover Creation Blog. Among other things, this is where you’ll find updates from our speakers, interesting reading, and more.
I had the opportunity in July to minister to a great group of third to fifth graders at Glad Tidings Bible Camp (located in northeastern Nebraska). The week was mostly hot and humid, but it was sprinkled with a few more manageable days. This Coloradoan is not accustomed to the humidly. But as the days passed, I became much more acclimated. I began the week by asking the following question – “How many of you are not sure, if you were to die today, you would go...Read More
Summer is a fantastic time for teaching at Vacation Bible Schools and camps. Rich recently took part in separate VBS programs in two different locations (as many as we can get).

He is trust-worthy in every area of our lives and has seen us through many good times and some trials as well. Even just last fall, as we were concerned about the short fall for...Read More
The other night, I presented a program called “Noah? A Flood of Evidence” to a group of eager learners at AOI’s center in Grand Junction. Part of it dealt with the huge floods resulting from breached dams, including Lake Bonneville and Lake Missoula, both of which almost instantaneously carved enormous canyons. The next morning, I noticed Richard Stepanek’s earlier blog called “A Tour of Catastrophes,” where he mentions how traveling on their speaking trip from...Read More
