Resurrection Day Drive and Blessing

Posted on Apr 28, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

When we are on speaking trips, even our “holidays” can sometimes be spent on the road or traveling. This last one was a very special time for Mary Jo and me! We began on Friday evening by joining friends in Payson, Arizona, for a Passover Seder sponsored by their church. The visiting minister explained the details of Passover and how it relates to Jesus and our faith. The next morning we had great fellowship with our friends before heading toward home. Since it was getting...

Grand Canyon

Posted on Apr 22, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Following some pretty iffy weather heading north from Scottsdale, we were very glad that the weather was just great for a hike in the Grand Canyon. Part of the group saw the sites on the canyon rim, while Mary Jo and I led 18 of the students for a 3 mile hike into the canyon. Although we only went a fifth of the way down into the canyon, it was just far enough for the students to get a little appreciation for the immensity of the canyon and the nature of some of the...

Sunset Crater and Volcanism

Posted on Apr 21, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

  A very intriguing place we chose to take the students to was Sunset Crater National Monument. The landscape is an interesting blend of black and red volcanic cinders interspersed with green ponderosa pine trees, junipers, and pinyon pine. The area is dotted with dozens of volcanic peaks, cinder cones, and lava sputter cones.  The most recent eruptions occurred around 1100 AD.  Since Native American Indian tribes lived in the area surrounding the eruptions, it really shows...

Flexibility

Posted on Apr 14, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Talk about flexibility!  Due to inclement weather, we had to make adjustments to a very packed schedule. After only 12 hours since writing my last blog, we ended up in the Scottsdale, Arizona area. This was after 500 miles of driving.  The day also included 1.5 hours at the Indian museum in Blanding, and a 2.5 hour hike into a canyon to see the drawing of a dinosaur on the rock at Natural Bridges National Monument. We were supposed to camp at Bluff, UT, but high winds and...

National Park Ranger Led Hikes and Philosophy

Posted on Apr 12, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

It is always a good experience for the students, on our 12 day field trip, to hear how the various philosophies are presented at the national parks. The pictures in this blog were all taken at Arches National Park.  Because of our larger group, we had two ranger led hikes in Arches by two different rangers. The first ranger was quite knowledgeable in geology and did a very good job in explaining the normal park perspective for the formations (which involves millions or even...

Indian Drawing of a Mammoth

Posted on Apr 8, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

One of the places we just visited on our 12 day field study, we are leading for the Jackson Hole Bible College, is a place where the ancient native inhabitants drew pictures on the sandstone walls. Among pictures of animals we see today, such as: deer, bighorn sheep, and lizards, there is also a picture of a mammoth. At first glance, this shouldn’t be a problem unless you view it through evolutionary glasses. According to what is traditionally taught, mammoths became...

Creation Field Trip through the Southwest

Posted on Apr 6, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Our caravan is 40 strong! Mary Jo & I are leading a group of 31 Jackson Hole Bible College students, plus their staff, on a 12 day field trip of the Southwest. So far, we have had a series of Creation classes before we left Grand Junction, a tour of the Colorado National Monument, Dinosaur Journey Museum, Dinosaur Valley excavation site, and now we are at Moab, Utah. All along the way, we are giving “mini” lectures relating to the site, putting them in the light of the...

Chew, Chew, Chew

While waiting for my mom at the dentist’s office, I was blessed to overhear a short conversation between the receptionist and an elderly woman. The receptionist asked her, “How do you stay so healthy?” Her reply delighted me: “I take what the Lord gives me … and He gave me a mouthful of teeth.” I love that! What a great attitude – and a good testimony to God’s goodness! And what a great reminder to remember our Creator and give thanks. I got to thinking – how often do I...

Do You Think They Will Read Them?

Posted on Mar 30, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Mary Jo & I were doing presentations at a church on Sunday. One of the parents really got excited about the creation message and wanted some resources. I suggested two “must have books” for her boys on dinosaurs (Dragons of the Deep, and Dinosaurs for Kids). Her question was “Do you think they will read them?” I guess they were really into video games. I assured her not only of the importance that they get material to counteract the evolutionary indoctrination but also...

Youth Rally and People “Getting It!”

Posted on Mar 23, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Mary Jo & I spoke for a youth rally as a portion of our seminar series in Pinedale, Wyoming. Someone who really saw how important it was to get as many youth as possible to see the creation material donated a brand new IPAD as a prize for a drawing held during the rally. That “bribe,” coupled with a pizza party and a pastor who also encouraged them to come, got a lot of youth out! We were also happy to see most all of them paying close attention to our creation...

Web Response From India

I received this email from someone in India who has found our website: Dear Sirs, I intend to introduce myself as Pastor *******, based in *****, India. I found your website to be wonderful with material made in the spirit of I would say young Elihu’s remarks in the Book of Job  “Let me go on, and I will show you the truth. For I have not finished defending God! I will present profound arguments for the righteousness of my Creator.”- Job 36:2-3  Keep up your good...

Rifkin and Today’s Genetic Engineering

Posted on Mar 17, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Mary Jo and I have had the privilege and pleasure of staying with Dave Harper and his wife, Barb, while teaching in Pinedale, WY. We always enjoy being with them, both because of their great hospitality and the stimulating conversation. Dave, currently the President of our Board of Directors, reminded me this morning of a quotation, originally written in 1983, which I had read years ago. With today’s push toward genetic engineering, I think we should be aware of the...
