Secular Humanists seek to ban origins debate in the UK education system - CrISIS campaign is launched against discussing creation

by Andrew Sibley; Published: 17 May 2011

I would recommend the above article to you; it is on the Creation Ministries International website.

Another poem from "Echoes of Eternity" by Michael R Abbott; used with permission –

The Glories Of Creation

Through the woodland hear the echo
Of the birds that sing all day
And at dusk, amongst the shadows,
See the fox and cubs at play;
Badgers from their setts appearing
As the darkness veils the glade:
See the glories of Creation
In the creatures God has made.

In the garden in the morning,
As the buds burst into flower,
Bees collect the precious nectar,
Toiling on from hour to hour.
Spiders spin their webs of silver,
Architects and builders too;
Butterflies clothed in their beauty,
Decked by God with every hue.

Wolves and bears, and lions and tigers
Live in lands beyond the seas,
But the God who made the rabbit
And the little mouse made these.
Elephants that pull their burdens,
Camels crossing desert sand;
All of these, for His good pleasure,
In His wisdom God has planned.

Fishes in the seas and waters,
Creatures from the ocean deep,
Shark and dolphin, seal and turtle,
Each their place in nature keep.
Mighty whales with spouting fountains,
Swimming out so far from land:
All are part of His Creation,
All were fashioned by His hand.

Witnesses of the Creator,
Formed by His divine decree;
By His word brought into being,
Simply He said, "Let there be".
Thus beholding God's Creation,
Let us give Him all the praise;
Worship Him in awe and Wonder,
Now and through eternal days.

Hello Clare,

I didn’t write the poem but I have just looked in the front of the book and it says -

The poems in this book may be used or reproduced without the author’s permission for purposes other than sale. If being reproduced for distribution, copyright should be acknowledged.

- so it looks like it can be used, no problems.

I was sorry to read on your blog that you are going through a difficult time health-wise at the moment and trust that things might pick up again for you.
