What Have We Lost?
One day in the mall a mom and dad noticed they had lost their small son. They started a frantic search. After a short time, they found him. He had surrounded himself with toys in the toy department and was having the time of his life. He didn't even know he was lost?
ARK Foundation Science Day: Why NOT a Science Day? The ARK Science Fair/Day held April 13 at the Bethany Church of Christ from 10 a.m. till 12:00 p.m. was changed to a display planning meeting because no applications were received.
You have just read reports of troubles, of unfilled needs, and was asked to look for measures of success. We will always have troubles. We will always have needs. It's how we handle them and go beyond them that will be our measure of success. On April 2, 1995, ARK had its first organizational meeting--ONE person came! Three came for the second meeting. Success comes one member at a time, one more outreach, one more contact.
We must build our network through word of mouth, through this newsletter or through speaking opportunities. I cannot report great success. I can report faithfulness in all circumstances. I can also report learning. Just like we improve by practice, so I believe we improve by doing our best. It is in the doing, not the watching, planning, or talking, that we must ultimately succeed. Our toys still surround us, they just cost more and hopefully we will recognize reality. Our plans still include an annual Science Day and we will take what we learned and do it sooner and better next year. Our meetings are bigger and our speakers inspire and teach us, but learning is a never ending task while we live.
May we live proclaiming God Creator till we die and live in His promised "New Creation."
