Some of you may have noticed I've been a little lax in getting out the newsletters. The reason has been due to the upcoming CARM convention next week (August 9, in Minn.), some family issues, finishing the CARM notebooks, and some pending surgery. So, I'll make this quick.
The CARM convention has been getting closer and closer and I'm happy to say it is all planned and ready to go. Kevin Harris (a speaker against atheism) and I will be on a radio show for an hour in the Twin Cities area on the Friday before the event. We will be talking about CARM, atheism, and other issues as we hope to get people to attend.
Please pray for my wife's health. She has marfan syndrome, spondliothesis (sp?), mitral valve prolapse, the bone density of an 80 year old, is in constant (though mild) pain, and is fatigued frequently. I don't normally let this be known, but she needs your prayers. Please lift her up as she supports me in this ministry, raises and home-schools our kids, and puts up with her own health concerns; she is quite a woman. Her only serious drawback is her choice in men.
The new CARM notebooks are finished. I sent them off to the printer and should be getting preliminary copies next week. I hope to have one copy each to take with me to the convention. I'll be releasing them on CARM in the next couple of weeks, so keep tabs on the shopping cart in the next couple of weeks. Just so you know, there are five volumes, comprising almost all of CARM and a single volume. Also, each of the five is combined into a single Mother Of All Notebooks (M.O.A.N.) that is well over 1,100 pages. I don't have the costs worked out but they will be around the same as the original notebook. But, the MOAN will be, I estimate, at about $40-$45 plus shipping.
Also, as some have heard, I have a hiatal hernia that may need surgery to correct. I just went through some fun tests with tubes down my throat and up my nose. I'll know more in a few weeks.
VERSE OF THE WEEK.
"Listen, O my people, to my instruction; incline your ears to the words of my mouth. 2I will open my mouth in a parable; I will utter dark sayings of old, 3Which we have heard and known, and our fathers have told us. 4We will not conceal them from their children, but tell to the generation to come the praises of the Lord, and His strength and His wondrous works that He has done," (NASB).
