While they now live in Croatia, yesterday’s special guest speakers for our staff chapel are originally from the San Diego area—and used to live just a few miles from where we resided (for seven years).
They also happened to be former neighbors of AiG’s Mark Looy back in California, have been missionaries with Global Partners for 15 years in the beautiful Croatian city of Split (on the coast along the Adriatic Sea). They showed us photos not only of their city, but of the many people who have become Christians through God blessing their ministry.
They happened to be in our region to drop off their daughter for her first year in college and wanted to reconnect with the Looys and tour the Creation Museum.
AiG Sculptor Receives Five-Year RecognitionAt yesterday’s staff meeting, sculptor Carolyn Manto Cancelliere was presented with her five-year recognition award by AiG’s exhibit design director, Patrick Marsh. Patrick complimented Carolyn for her outstanding sculpting achievements seen throughout the Creation Museum. Congratulations Carolyn. I have included a photograph of Patrick presenting Carolyn with her award.
Tree Trimming TimeVisitors at the Creation Museum may have noticed a lot of tree trimming going on recently. All part of ensuring the beautiful grounds are cared for properly.
Contrast rather than counterThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(2 Samuel 6:20,22) Then David returned to bless his household. And Michal the daughter of Saul came out to meet David, and said, How glorious was the king of Israel to day, who uncovered himself today in the eyes of the handmaids of his servants, as one of the vain fellows shamelessly uncovereth himself! . . . And I will yet be more vile than thus, and will be base in mine own sight.
When provoked by a personal attack of pride, our best position is not to counter with a more venomous pride, but to contrast with our greater posture of humility.
