Each work day our staff starts off the morning with prayer—and often some devotional time. Twice a week we usually feature a speaker, such as a local pastor or even a staff member who shares something about how God is blessing the ministry—and they address the whole staff.
On Wednesday, museum charter member—and one of our museum’s advertising consultants—Mark Tilghman presented something quite unusual for us all. He performed a one-man show (with his wife, Suzanne, providing some beautiful solo interludes—unseen from the back of the room) on the life of Job. It’s an adaptation of John Piper’s book The Misery of Job, The Mercy of God. Mark used this drama—performed right on the stage of our museum's theater—to remind our staff how the book of Job in the Old Testament is so much more than about Job’s suffering, but is really a testimony to God’s sovereignty and mercy. I actually saw some of the staff dab their eyes with tissues because they were so moved by Mark’s superb presentation.
Mark is the president of Joseph David Advertising, the organization responsible for creating our award-winning TV commercial that promote the Creation Museum (plus billboards and other media). We also appreciate Mark as a friend who shares our passion for proclaiming the creation/gospel message.
It is about 50 minutes long—but well worth listening to with a sort of surprise way of ending it. If you want to get a summary of the book of Job that will really touch your heart, challenge, and convict you, I encourage you to put aside the time and sit down and listen to this with your family.
Speaking in AtlantaI will be speaking at the Way of the Master Deeper Conference (with Kirk Cameron, Pastor Johnny Hunt, Ray Comfort, and others) tomorrow afternoon for two sessions (one keynote and one workshop). You can obtain details from AiG’s event calendar:
ProtectsThanks for stopping by and thanks for praying,
(Proverbs 2:10-19) When wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep thee: To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; Who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; Who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; Whose ways are crooked, and they froward in their paths: To deliver thee from the strange woman, even from the stranger which flattereth with her words; Which forsaketh the guide of her youth, and forgetteth the covenant of her God. For her house inclineth unto death, and her paths unto the dead. None that go unto her return again, neither take they hold of the paths of life.
