A Beautiful Christmas Gift Idea for Lutherans

Members of our churches have probably heard me talk about this once or twice in the last 7 or 8 years, but unless you listen to it, you won’t really understand how wonderful this is.  Then, the more you do listen, the more you will appreciate it, and even love it.  It’s a set of 4 music CDs from Concordia Publishing House called Martin Luther: Hymns, Ballads, Chants, Truth, and it’s included on sale in CPH’s annual Christmas catalog.  You can also buy it at the sale price on the CPH web site.  I see that there is also a sequel that includes chorales (classic Lutheran hymns) from later generations.

Scientists Defend Biblical Worldview against Bill Nye

You, your kids, or grandkids may have heard of Bill Nye the Science Guy.  I remember him making science a little more fun and fascinating years ago.  But apparently he’s been making comments against the biblical worldview, saying that Evolution is basically proven.  There have been a few segments on the Issues, Etc. radio program addressing Nye’s comments.  For example, this scientist points out that one fatal flaw of the theory of evolution is that there is no known mechanism for one life form to be transformed into another kind of life form.  To see other segments on Bill Nye, you can search the archives at Issues, Etc. for “Bill Nye”.
