    Be Salt & Light:

  • Become familiar with the organizations in our Science section, and with a few of the resources listed above. The first requirement is to be informed, articulate, and capable of educating others. You can do it!
  • Be on the lookout for origins-related issues (i.e. creation, evolution, intelligent design) in the news, newspapers, magazines. Keep excerpts or clippings for further contemplation and discussion. Make a phone call, write an editorial, or send email and make your viewpoint known. Once you're well-versed on the subject, write an Op-Ed.
  • Encourage conversation on origins issues - support the admission of Intelligent Design theory in the debate. Lead a small group discussion, teach a class in your church, and discuss the issue with your local school board, state Board of Education, and U.S. Secretary of Education.
  • Organize a group of scientists and scholars on the issue; Christian schools, colleges, and universities - even your own congregation - are a good place to start.
  • Support, through prayer and financial means, organizations such as Discovery Institute, Access Research Network, and Reasons to Believe.
