Nature Friend

"How many are your works, O LORD!
In wisdom you made them all;
the earth is full of your creatures"(Psalm 104:24).

Our son Christopher loves nature. He loves to go to the Tulsa Zoo, the Oklahoma City Zoo, and the Oklahoma Aquarium. Every week since he was a toddler, we have recorded the PBS program Nature for him on Sunday nights. He loves to learn about the variety of animals found throughout creation.

A few weeks ago, we subscribed to Nature Friend, a good magazine for children in elementary school. As the magazine states on page 3, "Nature Friend upholds the principles of the inspired Word of God, high Christian family standards, Divine Creation (no evolution), and practical Christian stewardship of God's creation." As much as we like the Tulsa Zoo and the Nature television series, they approach nature from an atheistic worldview. We must be careful to counter the promotion of atheism when we use them. This magazine, on the other hand, supports a Christian worldview as it teaches children about the world in which we live.
