Breaking Ground, Sowing Seed, and Bearing Fruit

As you can probably tell by this issue of Acts & Facts, our recent web news, and our social media platforms, we are excited about beginning construction on the ICR Discovery Center for Science and Earth History. We’ve prayed for and anticipated this adventure for years, and it’s finally happening!

The ICR Discovery Center will provide a memorable way to communicate the scientific evidence that confirms the Bible. It will introduce young children to the wonders of God’s creation and allow students to access information that is withheld from most school curricula. We want to sow the seed of truth into the lives of all who visit so they can grow to bear lasting fruit for the Lord.

In the feature this month, Dr. Henry Morris III discusses the importance of preparing our own hearts so we can bear fruit—and breaking up the fallow ground is part of the preparation required. He says, “Hosea was sent to challenge them to take advantage of who they were in the Lord, shake off the shackles of the ungodly, and turn the fallow (unused) ground to the purpose God had intended for it” (“Breaking Up Fallow Ground”).

Dr. Morris sees the urgency to reach younger generations with what’s really important in life: eternity. He reminds us that Jesus is our Creator and our Designer, stressing the “wonder and majesty of our Lord Jesus.” He challenges us to “break up the fallow ground”—to use our gifts to draw others to Christ, to see every opportunity He brings to us, and to be faithful ambassadors of His truth.

ICR’s scientists, scholars, and staff sow seeds of truth when we bring you the latest scientific research and demonstrate how it fits with Scripture. We provide articles, books, DVDs, and other resources to bring you up to date on the latest findings. And our most recent resource reaches out to the next generation—our first-of-its-kind children’s book Dinosaurs: God’s Mysterious Creatures.

But none of this would be possible without you! Without your prayers and support, we could not produce these resources. Without you, we could not build the discovery center. Without you, we could not continue sharing God’s creation message from this platform. Henry Morris IV points out that the “true strength of ICR” is “the people of God.” As partners together, this ministry continues to bear fruit. We are grateful for you. Thank you for being part of this great adventure.
