parents and creation

Friday, September 14th, 2012

just read a disturbing article that makes me want to do the opposite of what the article said to do… Bill Nye the Science Guy says parents who believe in creation should not tell/teach their children about creation. They should shut up according to him…What !! http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/08/28/us-usa-creationism-science-idUSBRE87R04J20120828

The science guy is telling parents not to talk to their own children about their values? Isn’t that what parents do?! Never mind the modern differences in Darwinian evolution that he advocates. Answers in Genesis and other advocates of creationism plus others of the Intelligent Design camp are all calling for him to shut up.

Parents please talk to your kids about these kinds of issues and topics. Talk about them often and continue to teach them values help your kids understand why you believe what you believe. You have a God given responsibility and the freedom to do no less.

The new school year

Tuesday, September 4th, 2012

The kids are back in school and everyone at my house is tired. It is back to the school morning schedule and then on to the crazy afternoon pick up and more  evening schedule.

The other night, we looked at a couple of scriptures that speak to the newness of life. Lamentations 3:23, Psalm 33:3 and 2 Corinthian 5:17. We asked questions like… What does new mean? What did you like about your new classes? How are God’s mercies new? to you? What will you do new and different this year? Then, we prayed and thanked God for new things. It was short and sweet but we read God’s word and had a important connecting moment that is crucial for families.
