My blog

Hi everyone, this is my first attempt at blogging, please be patient with me. I have always been passionately interested in science and always been a committed Christian who believes in the creative power of God, and I honestly believe that the two are not mutually exclusive.

Jesus: his Resurrection

http://downloads.cbn.com/cbnplayer/cbnPlayer.swf?s=/vod/MW131v2_WS

My sister sent this to me, and I want to share it here.  It's a very large and intricate painting showing theResurrection of Jesus, what Easter is all about.  If this isn't what Easter is, then it's just a day for chocolate bunnies and completely meaningless.  I prefer the real meaning, what about you?

Mad Padre: Is Sin a Myth? A Sermon for the First Sunday of L...: "Is Sin A Myth? Is sin a myth? That may seem like an odd title for a sermon, and granted it is a bit provocative. I chose it because one ..."


My brother the Mad Padre wrote this.  I find it interesting because it talks about the Creation story, Adam and Eve, evolution and so on.

God as creator, and us as creators

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/jeffrey-small/embracing-your-creative-g_b_829338.html

This is a wonderful essay about God as creator, and about us as creators.  About all the frustration and pain of trying always to get it right.  And how creation is on-going.
