Look Around

Every year I take a look through the pictures on my phone. I reminisce on where I have been, the people I have met and the places God has allowed me to visit.  For some reason this year I seemed to have a lot of pictures of my surroundings. If I had to sum up my year in pictures, I would have to say I really feel in love with God’s Creation. I took a look around and I discovered a God so much bigger than anything in this world. My Creator God is an artist and I wanted to share a couple of his beautiful art pieces from my year in review.

AiG Children’s Ministry Conference

This past month I had the privilege to able to take a group of leaders to a Children’s Ministry Conference at the The Creation Museum located at the Answers in Genesis Headquarters in Kentucky.  It was a such a good conference on many levels.

Here are some of the take aways & tweets from this awesome event.

  • Beware of Darts! http://instagr.am/p/W7WyIFG9Um/ 
  • “If parents are excited about something, the child will be excited about something” – Ruth Carter
  • “Incarnation trumps proclamation.” – Kurt Bruner / importance of family ministry
  • “If there is a mist in the pulpit there will be a fog in the pews.” – Ruth Carter
  • We can create WOW places but without WOW people, it’s just a place. – Ruth Carter
  • “Cool flows downhill when creating environments for combined ages.” – Ruth Carter 
  • “Please stop using Bulletin boards, we are so past that.” -Ruth Carter (creating irresistible environments for #kidmin)
  • “There is only one race – the human race” – Bodie Hodge  #racism
  •  When we teach kids are we just adding God to a secular world view? – Ken Ham  pic.twitter.com/1JqDdWH3UR
  • We are not teaching Apologetics in the church, we are teaching kids Bible “Stories” – Ken Ham
  • Are we preparing these kids to be able to attack the untruth that the schools are teaching them about creation? 

The opening session featured AiG CEO Ken Ham. It really opened up my eyes to how I need urgency when I teach these kids.  If you have an hour I would recommend you watch this video of Ken Ham’s opening session.
