This is a good item for the weekend. We present to you, dear reader, some excerpts from Summer science camp teaches kids about God, which appears in the Conroe Courier located in Conroe, Texas — near Houston. The newspaper has a comments feature, but we don’t see any yet. Okay, let’s get started. The bold font was added by us:
Children are learning about God while discovering the world of science at Mims Baptist Church in Conroe. The church summer science camp offers several hands-on activities for all children who have completed kindergarten to sixth grade on Wednesdays from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. Camp began June 8 and will continue to August 17.
Sounds like a wonderful experience. We’re told:
“Last year was our first time doing the science camp and the children really enjoyed it,” said Children’s Minister, Debby Stovall. “Kids are intrigue [sic] with experiments and God is visible in science and most scientists do not believe in God, but as they start working through things you cannot explain it a part from God.”
So true! Let’s read on:
The power of God, said Stovall, is demonstrated through science. Children learn by curiosity, Stovall said, and the camp is an opportunity for them to learn about scientific facts and also the facts about God.
That’s an opportunity the godless public schools don’t offer. We continue:
A particular lesson about the sun, moon and the stars, described Stovall, helped children understand just how important they are to God. She told the kids there is more than 200 billion stars in the galaxy, and God knows all of them.
Wowie — all the names are known! Here’s more:
“God knows the number of stars, he calls them all by name so how much more important than you are to God than a star,” Stovall said.
That’s a bit unclear. Are we more important than the stars, or is it the other way around? Anyway, let’s move along:
“Kids also learned how the sun may shine, however the moon does not shine, but it reflects. In the same way, we reflect the glory of God when we are obedient to him.”
The rest is mostly several gushing remarks of a woman whose daughter attends the camp, so this is where we’ll stop. We’ve seen other articles about church-run science camps, but this is the first time we actually read one of them. It’s pretty much what we expected.
