View From The Pulpit - Anglican - Michael Roberts - BCSE Member


BCSE member, the Reverend Michael Roberts has just written this piece on Creationism, education and the Church of England.  Click the PDF link for the full article.  Well worth a read.


Everyday Champions – of what? (Should schools teach creationism?) The proposed Free School in Newark, Nottinghamshire. 
Against the backdrop of the news that the creationist Everyday Champions Church in Newark are pursuing an application to found a free school – Everyday Champions School – Michael Roberts - M.A. (Oxon), Vicar in the Diocese of Blackburn – agreed to put a few words together for me.
You can find the essay on the below PDF link:
Everyday Champions – of what? (Should schools teach creationism?) The proposed Free School in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
I would encourage everyone to give a little time to read this, irrespective of your views on creationism.
Michael looks at the teaching of creationism within our schools and the dangers of “creeping creationism” within the education system. He covers the development of creationism, why it is wrong, and the challenge this presents to churches.
Michael’s writing has played no small part in my own development and understanding and it’s with this in my mind that I urge you to give this a read.
