On Thursday morning I spoke for an hour and a half to 250 Christian leaders (see photographs) who came together in Rogers, Arkansas, as a lead-up to the AiG conference in April. Pastors from many different denominations and other influential Christian leaders gave tremendously positive feedback. We believe the AiG conference (including the special programs for elementary, middle, and high school students) is going to be very well attended. Dr. Terry Mortenson and I are the two speakers. A local television station said they will be doing a blog story on the Christian leaders’ meeting as a prelude to the conference—where they want to bring their cameras to produce a special program on the creation/evolution issue.
Homeschooling Illegal in California
Onenewsnow.com reported on a case in California that is very concerning and which we need to keep a watchful eye on. Here is an excerpt from what they reported:
A three-judge panel of the California Court of Appeal has determined parents in that state have no legal right to home school. A Christian attorney in Sacramento says unless the ruling is reversed, literally thousands of students in the Golden State will be subject to criminal sanctions.

Devotion: The Unhurried Sacrifice
(Gen 46:1–3) And Israel took his journey with all that he had, and came to Beersheba, and offered sacrifices unto the God of his father Isaac. And God spake unto Israel in the visions of the night, and said, Jacob, Jacob. And he said, Here am I. And He said, I am God.
Our devotional life blossoms when we offer to God the unhurried sacrifice of our time, setting aside the filet mignon of the day, morning time, to meet with God.
Thanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
