Tsunami

Posted on Mar 16, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

It’s hard to describe the emotions felt while watching tsunami waves engulfing Japan in real time. Viewing the before and after images gives a glimpse of the destruction. And yet the loss and human suffering is unimaginable. Our hearts go out to those who have lost loved ones, friends, farms, businesses, personal belongings – and their sense of order and security in life. The trauma they have faced, and are continuing to face, seems overwhelming. Oh, that they would turn to...

Junk DNA and Creationist Predictions

Posted on Mar 11, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

As much as 98% of the DNA molecule has been labeled “junk.” It was thought to have no function and thus, that mutations could accumulate there without being “weeded out” by natural selection. However, research is rapidly showing functionality for the so-called “junk DNA.” Even Francis Collins, long-term DNA researcher who just a few years ago thought that non-coding areas of DNA were non-functional, is now recognizing complex functions taking place in the areas previously...

Treadmills, DVDs, and Friends

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

While exercising on my treadmill this morning, I enjoyed watching a DVD called “Creation the Facts of Life” by Dr. Gary Parker. This multitasking makes the time go faster and gives me an opportunity to meet new friends or touch bases with people I haven’t seen in awhile. It was fun to spend the time with Dr. Parker today. Dr. Parker was one of my professors/mentors while attending the ICR Graduate School. His unique teaching style and ability to see relationships between...

Are You Hungry?

Posted on Mar 3, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

At a recent staff meeting, I was blessed to hear Rich Stepanek’s report on his latest trip to India. As often happens on international trips, Rich found a refreshing hunger to learn about creation and how it relates to the gospel message, and a welcome eagerness to sit and listen for many hours on end. (I think it’s going to be hard for him to come back to the “reality” here in the States – rigid time constraints and the busyness that tugs and pulls on people’s willingness...

Hummingbird Spy Planes

Posted on Mar 2, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

I thoroughly enjoy hummingbirds and dragonflies. They are certainly marvels of creation. However, there may come a time when people will start shooting them. The Associated Press (2/28/2011) just had an article about new research with working models of tiny spy planes that mimic birds and insects. The hummingbird “drone” can fly forward and backwards, up and down, sideways, and rotate. However, unlike the real thing, it is loaded with video and audio equipment to record...

Oh Yes! We Remember THAT Camp!

Posted on Feb 25, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

I was asked if we remembered “that camp” mentioned in my last blog where we spoke 25 years ago? How could we forget?  It has been permanently seared into our minds! We conducted a kid’s program from 9 AM to 9 PM for the entire week! It was about 100-104 degrees in Texas with about the same humidity—and it was outdoors! (Perhaps that is why we began doing family camps in the cool Colorado Mountains?) We did arts, crafts, slide programs, and tried not to go crazy with a large...

“25 Years Ago You Spoke . . .”

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

Last week I received a phone call from a man who had attended a camp where we had spoken almost 25 years ago!  He was 13 or 14 at that time, but has been out of touch with us since. He had recently found us on our website. The creation message has been important to him all these years. Sometimes we don’t hear from people at all as to how the message has impacted them until many years later.  Usually it is because we returned to an area and are approached by someone,...

You Shall Know the Truth

Posted on Feb 16, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

Several years ago, I heard an atheistic, evolutionary university professor comment, “I wouldn’t know truth if it stared me in the face.” Unfortunately, that statement was probably more “true” for him than he realized. It seems that today there is a real “famine” of truth in our society. We are continually bombarded with “information,” but how much of it is real, solid truth? Outright deception and lies abound. In addition, bits and pieces of “truth” are mixed with opinion,...

Creation Centers

Posted on Feb 11, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 0 comments

On the way back from our speaking trip in Texas, Mary Jo & I had the pleasure of stopping by two Creation centers. The Discovery Center in Abilene is run by Tommy and Caroline Walden. They are very energetic people with a real passion for creation. A popular exhibit is their talking robot. The Center has some fossils and various creation displays. An exhibit they are developing features material donated relating to the Titanic. Their message will be comparing it to...

Ice Storms and Travel

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

With all of the travel we do for speaking, we are extremely grateful for safety on the road. Sometimes we are even more grateful. The other day we woke up to snow on the ground with blowing snow and ice freezing our car doors shut and road conditions which closed the schools. As much as we would have liked to huddle inside our host’s nicely warmed home and sip on hot tea, there loomed ahead a pressing need to brave the storm and travel to the next speaking location. The...

How Firm a Foundation

Posted on Feb 4, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 1 comment

The words of the old hymn, How Firm a Foundation, have been running through my mind today. What a message to meditate on! How firm a foundation, ye saints of the Lord Is laid for your faith in His excellent Word! What more can He say than to you He hath said, To you who for refuge to Jesus have fled?  This firm foundation begins way back in the beginning in Genesis 1. “In the beginning, God …” What a comfort it is to know that God was there in the beginning … and He will be...

This Church Believes God’s Word!

Posted on Feb 2, 2011 in Nuttings from the Front | 1 comment

Mary Jo and I just finished doing a seminar at Grace Bible Church in Sherman, TX. The pastor of this church teaches solidly on the Biblical record of Creation, and the people are eager to increase their understanding of scientific evidence that supports the Biblical view. We enjoyed the informed and enthusiastic response, especially from the young people who are being trained to defend their faith with boldness and confidence. It is so good to be in a church like this. I...
