New Book – “The Story of the Cosmos … “

CLICK HERE to Check out this great new book and watch for news of a launch event – IN THE DALLAS AREA – in the near future.

Here’s a quote from the Amazon book summary:

“Modern science has popularized a view of the cosmos that suggests there is no need for God and denies any evidence of His existence. But The Story of the Cosmos provides a different—and fascinating—perspective. It points to a God who makes Himself known in the wonder and beauty of His creation.

This compilation from respected scholars and experts spans topics from “The Mathematical Creation and the Image of God” to “The Glorious Dance of Binary Stars” and “God’s Invisible Attributes—Black Holes.” Contributors include Dr. William Lane Craig, Guillermo Gonzalez, Melissa Cain Travis, and Dr. Michael Ward.

Come, take a deeper look at the universe…and explore the traces of God’s glory in the latest discoveries of astronomy, science, literature, and art.”

New Take On “Fine Tuning” THIS THURSDAY Evening – Reasonable Faith Chapter Meeting

Do you have to choose between science and “faith”?
Do you have to be a scientist to be interested in “Intelligent Design”?
The answer to both questions is “No!”.
Why is our knowledge of these Intelligent Design topics so important? 
Join us this Thursday evening as our special guest speaker, Blake Giunta, speaks to our local chapter of Reasonable Faith.  Scroll down (past the totally unrelated ad) to our earlier post to learn more about Blake — his passion for defending the faith, his experience in presenting and even debating the big apologetics topics, and his amazing on-line resource, “BeliefMap”.

May 23, 6:45-8:15 PM

Blake Giunta Returns, Thursday, May 23, 6:45 PM

Blake Giunta will be our very special guest speaker at this month’s Reasonable Faith chapter meeting.  More than just a delightful and entertaining speaker, Blake is known internationally for the depth and breadth of his knowledge of Christian apologetics.  He has proven his ability to stand strong in numerous debates, including at least two appearances on the U K based “Unbelievable” radio show and podcast.  Blake is also the founder and architect of the web site, “BeliefMap”, which is unbelievable in its own right.  (See the graphic below or go to beliefmap.org)

TWO MAJOR ANNOUNCEMENTS:

1.  NO REASONABLE FAITH CHAPTER MEETING THIS MONTH!   May meeting will be at Crosspoint Church in McKinney.

Because of the extensive hail damage at Cottonwood Creek, this month’s Collin County chapter meeting has been postponed.  We will meet, as scheduled, on May 23 and June 27.  Crosspoint Church has graciously offered to host our meetings until Cottonwood’s facilities are recovered.

2.  GAP for Parents Class WILL meet Sunday, April 28 – At CROSSPOINT CHURCH in McKinney

We are grateful to Crosspoint Church for offering to host our GAP meetings until Cottonwood is back to normal.  For more information on this new location, go to rfcctx.com/gap.  The topic this week is one you won’t want to miss.  What do you say when your student comes home and tells you that God condones rape and slavery and cites some more than troubling scripture to prove it?

GAP for Parents – Sunday, 4/14, 4:00-5:30

GREAT NEWS!  Confirming that we will meet this week, 4/14 and that we will be meeting in the “Game Plan Center” at Cottonwood Creek Church.

Excited to announce that we will jump a few chapters to focus on evolution this week.

Many a Christian student has felt challenged by the popular view that Darwinian evolution is “settled science”. If not prepared to deal with this, today’s anti-Christian culture appears to make a strong case for atheism. Belief in evolution is central to that case and has caused the de-conversion of countless Christians.

We will consider the following evolution topics:
– Evidence for evolution
– Evidence against evolution
– Implications of age of earth question
– Why scarecrows are more than scary

​See you Sunday at 4:00

GAP Class – We DO Have a Room THIS SUNDAY

In spite of the outrageously evil hail storm that wiped out almost all of Cottonwood’s class rooms, it appears that we will have a room this Sunday for our 4:00 to 5:30 class.  But it would be very helpful to know if you will be able to attend.  

CLICK HERE TO OPEN A 1-CLICK RSVP FORM

Stay tuned for details.   Meanwhile, don’t forget the challenge to do one or both of the following:
  1. QUESTIONS NIGHT” – Set a time, intentionally, to talk to your kids about any questions they have about God, the Bible, science, whatever.
  2. SPOT THE LIE” – When watching a movie, program or video, challenge your kids to actively and critically think about any messages that conflict with Christian values and beliefs.

CONFIRMING NO GAP CLASS TODAY 3/31

Due to the water damage to all possible rooms, we aren’t sure when we will be able to meet again at Cottonwood.  We would welcome any suggestions for a possible alternative meeting site.
Meanwhile, let’s stay engaged by sharing links to videos, podcasts, blogs and whatever.  For those who have access to Facebook, our Reasonable Faith Facebook group is a great way to share. The group name is simply, “Reasonable Faith Collin County”.  (You do have to request membership.  I’ll check daily to approve new requests.)
Sorry to miss meeting together.  But, let’s not allow the hail storm to cause us to lose focus on the purpose of our GAP class
