FAVORITE SCRIPTURE/ PHILOSOPHY OF EDUCATION:

“One generation will commend your works to another; they will tell of your mighty acts.  They will speak of the glorious splendor of your majesty, and I will meditate on your wonderful works. They will tell of the power of your awesome works, and I will proclaim your great deeds.”   Psalm 145:4-6

I am delighted to be able to commend Godís works to the next generations as a professor of science. I get to help students see for themselves the harmony between the two revelations of God, the Word and the World, these two books by the same heavenly Author that have so much to tell us about who He is.
