Our family celebrates two birthdays this month. Our oldest son turns 38, and our grandson turns one. These birthdays have caused me to reflect on the difference between being a father and a grandfather. My oldest son’s birthday makes my wife and me feel older. Our grandson’s makes us feel younger. Go figure.

==================================================

This week, I’m on vacation. My wife will tell you I’m not very good at taking vacations. I understand the concept, a time of resting and making memories with your family, but I have a hard time putting it into practice.

For most of my life, I have traveled internationally for my job. When I get off the plane, I automatically start thinking about how to capture the place for the Kingdom. Some people might call it an occupational hazard, but I like to think of it as Kingdom-mindedness.

In order for us to take a real vacation, my wife asks that we go someplace where I don’t know a single person. This can be difficult, because I know many people in many parts of the world. She also asks that when we leave the place, I still not know anyone there. That is even more difficult. I love engaging people and building relationships with them. To me, people are life. The real joy of traveling is not the sites (although I enjoy them) but the people.

A Day Is a Day Is a Day of Course: Unless That Day Challenges Darwinism! | pt. III

Ronnie Rogers is senior pastor of Trinity Baptist Church in Norman, Okla.

by Ronnie Rogers, pastor
Trinity Baptist Church
Norman, Okla.

(Review pts. I & II)

This is the third part of this series of articles, which looks at the strengths of interpreting the word “day” in Genesis chapter 1 as a normal lunar day. The fourth and final article answers objections to this normal reading of the text. See my previous posts under the same title, Part I, published 6/4/14 and Part II on 7/16/14. As mentioned in a previous post, any evidence or arguments I make that are not relevant to a particular position should not be considered a misrepresentation of the position, but rather my attempt to consider various views that in one way or another view the days as long periods of time.

If you’re a parent, you know about the dreaded disorder that comes from being exposed to your children all summer long. Yes, this thing called summer vacation can be hazardous to your health. It starts out with an innocent excitement that your children are out of school. You think about all the advantages of summer: no more getting up early, making lunches and driving them to school, sports and other activities. You can hardly wait for the days of fun and games to begin.

But a week into the long months ahead, you begin to think getting up wasn’t so bad after all. And how long does it take to make a bologna sandwich, anyway? By the end of the summer, you’ve joined a group of other desperate parents circulating a petition for year-round school. You know you’re ready for summer to end if you exhibit one or more of the following signs:
