YouthCamp 2012

From the editor: Leo Parris was one of thirty-seven singles and young marrieds who attended YouthCamp this year as team leaders. He shares his reflections on camp below:   “FIRE IN THE HOLE!” Jesse Whitten shouted as I held on for dear life while another tomato went hurtling past my ear. ”For the iron!”, the Blue Team shouted somewhere in the distance. This...

So Where does Psalm 148 end?

To the writer of psalm 148 the glory of God in creation is obvious.  The apostle Paul agrees when in Romans one he tells us that God’s eternal power and divine nature have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made.  Too many Christians have given in to the foolish propositions of evolution, when in themselves they form the...

God’s Fingerprint

The design of God’s creation is amazing; the complexity is astonishing.  That is why all people from Kings to children are called to praise God for what he made (Psalm 148:11-12.)  “His majesty,” the psalmist tells us, “is above earth and heaven.”  In the twelfth century, a man named Leonardo Fibonacci discovered a simple series of numbers that...

What’s Your Time, God? How Long did it Take You?

When a person tells you that they ran a marathon, 26.2 miles, the very first question you ask is, how long did it take you?  What was your time?  While completing 26 miles in a single day is a fine accomplishment for any runner, to run a marathon in under 4 hours is amazing.  To run the race in two hours, three minutes and 38 seconds as Patrick Makau of Kenya did on September...

Go Ahead and Try to Count the Stars

Psalm 148:35 says, “Praise him, sun and moon, praise him, all you shining stars.  Praise him you highest heavens, and you waters above the heavens!  Let them praise the name of the Lord! For he commanded and they were created.”  We all know the account of God’s creation of the heavens.  We read it in Genesis 1:14-19 where it says: “And God said...

Even the Weather Makes for His Praise

Psalm 148 tells us that fire, hail, snow and mist, and stormy wind all praise the Lord from the earth (verse 8) and fulfill the word of the Lord.  It is clear from scripture that God uses the elements of fire and precipitation to fulfill his word.  In Exodus 9:23-24, referring to one of the plagues of Egypt, it says, “And the LORD rained hail upon the land of Egypt. ...

Our Creator, an Artist Worthy of Praise

Praise the Lord. Praise him. Praise him. The command to praise is repeated again and again in Psalm 148.  All the hosts of heaven, all the kings of the earth, and all manner of plant and animal are called to praise God. The reason? “For he commanded and they were created!” Every flower, every star, every fingerprint, every animal, all together testify of his wonder and glory...

The Glory of God in Creation

During our recent pastors and wives retreat, Jared led us in a study of creational theology.  Jared defined creational theology as the exploration of what can be known about God through the world he has made and the senses he has given us.  I  shared with the team a message from Psalm 148,  a psalm with a creational theology theme.  Psalm 148 is a call to praise...
