The Salt Lake Tribune had a very interesting (albeit sad) article about an "evolutionary evangelist" who travels the country giving lectures on what the newspaper report called "a 14-billion-year-old gospel." The interview is worth reading because it has some very revealing statements that shout a warning to those in the church who compromise the Bible with evolutionary ideas. Here is a quote from the article:
For the past three years, Michael Dowd has traveled the country with his wife, science writer Connie Barlow, sleeping in their van or at friends' homes and preaching a 14-billion-year-old gospel. 'The Great Story,' as Dowd calls it, presents the epic of evolution as sacred and meaningful, rather than as a mechanized process of random improvements. It combines the discoveries of science with a reverence for God and a reinterpretation of Christianity. Dowd was ordained as a United Church of Christ minister but is no longer connected with a specific denomination. The self-described 'evolutionary evangelist' recently brought his message to the Unitarian Universalist Community Church of Washington County in Hillsboro, Ore.

PHOTOGRAPHS OF THE DAY
I have attached two photographs I took of Kentucky's state bird, the cardinal, from the back door of our house. The photographs are of the male and female cardinal---the male is the more colorful of the two.
Thanks for stopping by,
