From Russ McGlenn: Tricia McGlenn home going celebration announcement.


Tricia passed into her heavenly home November 25, 2016 at 9:20. Russ and their son Ryan were there until the end.

Tricia was born Patricia Adele Barnes July 25,1944 at Turtle Lake Minnesota. At about 9 years old she contracted meningitis and was quarantined for about three weeks. We think that this led to her years of auto immune symptoms which began in her twenties in college. Now she is free from the pain and is with Jesus, friends and relatives in heaven. We are so thankful for Jesus' promise of the resurrection that comes with our celebration of Easter. I will be together with her soon for eternity.

Tricia graduated from the University of Minnesota, and then went to Multnomah University were we met. At first we were just friends, but soon we realized we were soul mates. We both felt called to reach the lost Indian people in South America. We felt we could do it better if we teamed up and got married. After we graduated, we were married August 17, 1968 in Anoka MN at the First Baptist Church. My grandfather Victor Anderson had been on the ordination council for Pastor Look who married us. We celebrated 48 years together last August.

Tricia was a Proverbs 31 woman in so many ways. A great mother, teacher of our children and teacher of others at school, a good Bible scholar, and she bought and sold land for a good profit in most cases. She was my friend, soul mate, councilor, fashion consultant (I am fashion challenged) and missionary/business partner.

The most important thing I learned from her was to admit where I was wrong and ask forgiveness. That, and keeping Jesus in our lives, has held us together for all these years.

2 Cor. 5:8 "We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord." These are the words we had placed on my mother's grave and it is our affirmation that Tricia has gone to be in the presence of Jesus. We will see you there, Tricia.

She is survived by our children Heather, Ryan and Kevin, 5 grandchildren her sister and two brothers and of course I, Russ McGlenn who will miss her deeply. I end with the words I gave on her Mothers Day ring last Spring. "Love You For Eternity."

A memorial service will be held at the First Baptist Church, 2970 Santa Maria Way, Sunday December 4th at 2:00 PM. Internment will be in the Spring at Sunset Memorial Cemetery, Minneapolis, MN in a plot by her parents Fay and Adel Barnes, Grandparents Arthur and Florence Garrison and nephew Johnathan Barnes.

Rather than flowers, Tricia would want that you consider donating to the Tricia Memorial Fund. This will enable Russ to continue their outreach to the Juvenile Justice Center with Bible studies and follow up in Santa Maria. Please make checks to our mission TCCSA (Twin Cities Creation Science Association) with a note that it is for the Tricia Memorial Fund if you want a tax deductible receipt or to Russ McGlenn.

BioLogos

Biologos: Behind the Facade

On April 18, 2015, Biologos held a seminar at Constance Evangelical Free Church in Andover Minnesota, co-sponsored by MacLaurin CSF, a Christian study center at the University of Minnesota, which recently merged with Christian Student Fellowship. The title was "Integration of Science and Faith" and the goal was stated like this: "What if, rather than emphasizing opposition, we sought to understand the common ground shared by science and faith, without compromising either the science or Scripture and the Christian faith?" Speakers were John Walton (Professor of Old Testament at Wheaton) and Keith B. Miller (Professor of Geology at Kansas State).

Finally Collins admitted that his original contention that junk DNA proved evolution was fallacious and to call it that is "hubris." So called "Junk" actually has cricial regulatory functions. But he has not so far called off the attack dogs of Biologos who continue to seek to deride, belittle and mock the teaching of special creation by Christians. Come on, Dr. Collins!

TCCSA
Can You Be A Point Person?

Many Christians shy away from the issue of creation vs evolution.

Why? Because they think creation is either not important or not credible.

Regular TCCSA attenders know that creation is actually far more credible than evolution and is much more important than most realize. Believing that God used evolution or took millions of years, makes Him either clumsy, cruel or indifferent and makes the Bible unreliable from the beginning.

But the issue is also not one of pure intellectual discussion. There are psychological and spiritual barriers to even considering the evidence. To be a point person requires humility, prayer, love and persistence.

Bruce Malone writes, "After leaving Dow and launching into full time Christian ministry (almost 3 years ago), we have finally updated our web site to make all of our resources easily accessible and available AT ABSOLUTELY NO COST. Every video lecture, audio teaching, and most books are now available for instant download. In addition, there are links to other major creation resources, my up-to-date speaking schedule, and a much improved order/donation basket.

Take a few minutes to poke around the new Search for the Truth web site, add a link to your favorites menu, and forward a link to others you know. I think you'll use this site as an ongoing resource for equipping yourself and others with a foundational knowledge on the importance of creation."

Finely Graded Strata Deposited Simultaneously
Do Layers Prove Long Ages? Experiments Disprove That Long Unexamined Assumption

What Does Global Warming Have To Do With Creation?

Like the Creation/Evolution issue:

* It is "science" by consensus
* Discussion is not allowed (dissenters want discussion)
* Key evidence is ignored
   - there have been cycles of warming and cooling in the past
   - Greenland was farmed by the Vikings long before industrialization
   - Carbon dioxide follows warming as the oceans warm and release it
* Dissenters are vilified
* It assumes that man can save the earth
* It leaves out God's plan
* It accepts billions of years of earth history
* And longs for dramatic population reduction.

Does it strike anybody as strange that carbon dioxide -- which is present at a level of about 5% in the air we all exhale and is absolutely necessary for the growth of green plants on which all animal life on earth ultimately depends for food -- is designated as a pollutant?

Will we need to purchase "carbon credits" to keep breathing? Since water is an even more powerful "greenhouse gas" will that be next? Have we entered "Wonderland" and not noticed?

Hey, I just thought of a way to cut Health Care costs!

Interesting thought: "Climategate" (the revelation of incriminating e-mails detailing underhanded suppression of dissent) has not provoked a media feeding frenzy like Watergate did.

Child Abuse?
by Ross Olson

Richard Dawkins in The God Delusion and Christopher Hitchens in God is Not Great claim that Christianity and Creationism are child abuse because they indoctrinate the young and vulnerable.

But what about those who tell kids, "You are an accidental collection of molecules. You not only have no intrinsic value or significance but when you die, it is all over. Also, you are not even the pinnacle of evolution but part of an accidental species that will probably be replaced by cockroaches. We are not even sure about free will... but we are pretty sure you are destroying the earth. And by the way, there are too many of you. Now hurry along, children, your next class is on Self Esteem."

Dancing with the Devil, Juggling the Facts

Bill Nye, "the science guy," has enhanced his star status by appearing on "Dancing with the Stars." He appears to be light on his feet although recent statements indicate that he is intellectually lead-footed.

His diatribe against creation began with the assertion that America is at the forefront of science and technology because of freedom of thought. He then turned right around and complained that too many people do not think as he does. I am not privy to the state of Mr. Nye's soul, which is real and precious whether or not he thinks he has one. But I do fear for his eternal destiny since such elementary errors of logic for a man of intelligence and learning indicate that he is clearly suppressing the truth.

Ross Olson engaged in a little on line debate with National geographic blogger, Greg Laden, on Fox News Local affiliate chanel 9 Twin Cities on September 24, 2013. www.myfoxtwincities.com/story/19628929/advocates-debate-bill-nyes-suggestion-to-not-teach-creationism

God Does Not Believe In Atheists!

Really! God does not believe in atheists. Sure, He knows there are those who claim there is no God. But first of all, He calls them fools. (Psalm 14:1)

Then He says that deep down inside, they actually know He is there. They did not get to where they are by way of intellectually honest inquiry but are rather practicing suppression of the truth. And because of this, they are not only without excuse but objects of His extreme anger. (Romans 1:18-21)

Further, Scripture predicts that eventually every knee will bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2:9-11)

Some will bow in grateful praise for forgiveness and a future eternity with Him. (Revelation 21:1-7)

Some will bow with gritted teeth, in dread and remorse for wasted life and opportunities, recognizing that they have been willing victims of the master deceiver and will share his fate. (Revelation 20:10-15)

C. S. Lewis
Thought

There are all sorts of different reasons for believing in God, and here I will mention only one. It is this. Supposing there was no intelligence behind the universe, no creative mind. In that case nobody designed my brain for the purpose of thinking. It is merely that when the atoms inside my skull happen for physical or chemical reasons to arrange themselves in a certain way, this gives me as a by-product, the sensation I call thought. But if so, how can I trust my own thinking to be true? It is like upsetting a milk-jug and hoping that the way the splash arranges itself will give you a map of London. But if I cannot trust my own thinking, of course I cannot trust the arguments leading to atheism and therefore the reason to be an atheist, or anything else. Unless I believe in God, I cannot believe in thought or anything else: so I can never use thought to disbelieve in God.

C. S. Lewis
