I was deeply disappointed this morning to find out that our church is sponsoring a young-earth conference next month. They are even starting to push the children to attend. I got a flyer sent home in my daughter's AWANA bag about it.
My eight year old is very frustrated. At least she knows enough about the controversy not to get in a debate with her Sunday School teachers about it. But she is frustrated nonetheless. About all I could say was, "Welcome to the club." It offered little consolation for her.
Oh, and did I mention, my church is located one mile from Reasons To Believe? Sadly, the leadership won't even consider 'equal time' (or ANY time, for that matter) for old-earth creationism to be presented.
Sad, sad, sad.
