Now he's got the license to...

...preach! Today during chapel service Chris was officially granted permission to go and preach law and gospel from the pulpit.
Praise the Lord for this great step forward! We pray that his sermons will be well received and don't put people like our 5 year old son J.J. to sleep too often :) Posted by Picasa

We have lift-off!

As part of our seminary homeschool learning fair, Carlotta and J.J. launched the rockets they built as part of our studies about space exploration. Our second rocket went up 200 feet, but when the parachute shot out as planned, the wind drifted it over to the professor housing area and we never found it. But what a success! Posted by Picasa

Hey, that was a groovy session

The Tiews concluded their studies of the 50s, 60s and the Space Race with a nice unit party. The week before we met Buzz Aldrin, one of the first two astronauts who set foot on the moon. He visited the Science Center here in St. Louis. That was really groovy....

At Immanuel, our fieldwork church, Chris is teaching a great class on the weaknesses of evolution and how all the evidence points to the wonderful creator. We are all glad that he's NOT wearing his favorite 60s outfit during that bible study :)

From the church bulletin:
Can Christians Really Believe in Evolution? - Music Room; Apr. 23- May14; Seminarian Chris Tiews. We are blessed to have a seminarian who is also a geologist. Chris will look inside the evolution/creation debate, with some attention to the issue of intelligent design. Topics for each of the four weeks are: "Two Competing Worldviews: Naturalism and Creationism," "Scientific Weaknesses of the Evolution Theory," "Is Intelligent Design a Viable Alternative?" "The Wolf in Sheep's Clothing and the Christian Response."
