A Season for Every Purpose

The writer of the book of Ecclesiastes reminds us that all things must change.  "To every thing there is a season, and a time to every purpose under the heaven" (Ecclesiastes 3:1). This is true for Acts & Facts, the publication by which we have proclaimed creation truth for over 35 years--relating the "acts" of the science staff along with the "facts" as they were uncovered. It has been the way we reported to the larger ICR family the blessings and victories God provided, and the tool by which we communicated ICR's various needs and priorities.

Acts & Facts has been exceedingly well-received over the years. People often tell me they have saved each issue, some from the very start, keeping them neatly cataloged and passing them along to others when needed. It has served as ICR's only fundraising tool, and even though we refrain from high pressure appeals, friends of the ministry have graciously responded to meet our every financial need, keeping us out of debt and facilitating great growth.

As you read in last month's Acts & Facts, ICR's offices and personnel will gradually be shifting to the new ICR center in Dallas, providing an opportune time for Acts & Facts to receive a needed facelift. Previously, minor changes involved length, color, and type style, but it retained a decidedly '70s look. The August issue launched the new Acts & Facts magazine, with a much more appealing look to those not yet familiar with ICR. And while we labor to spread the truth of the Creator to many more who need this message, Acts & Facts will have the same great content, with columns and authors you will recognize. It will, of course, still come to you free of charge.

In some ways it seems like saying goodbye to a faithful friend, but I am confident these changes signal a new chapter of fruitful ministry for ICR. God's hand of blessing has been apparent on Acts & Facts, but we can expect Him to sanction this new venture only as long as we stay faithful to Him and His Word. And that we'll never change.
