Yesterday I took the 9th graders hiking at Laurel Pocket Wilderness here in Rhea County. It’s a beautiful, pie-sliced piece of land set aside for recreation. In reality, it is truly a pocket of glory—God’s glory! Although it was a bit warm, and the recent drought killed Laurel Falls, I very much enjoyed all the plant life, rocks and trees that Jesus made for His glory! When is the last time you got out in creation and saw the glorious handiwork of the Creator? This past weekend I previewed a video I plan to show to my students at the academy. It’s entitled God of Wonders: Exploring the Wonders of Creation, Conscience, and the Glory of God (Eternal Productions). A friend purchased it at the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky. It’s a great tribute to our great God, concentrating upon the majors (God as Creator, intelligent design, etc.) rather than the minors (young or old earth creationism, etc.). Worship God through His Word and prayer. And—from time to time—get out into a pocket of glory for the same purpose! So, go take a hike. I’m not doing so. My legs are sore. Have a good day!
