Mr. D.E.W.

Labor Ready is a mission in St. Augustine, FL.
It is the home of Mr. D.E.W.
Today, I had the privilege of meeting Mr. D.E.W.
He came in riding on a bike.
The bike had three tennis balls stuck in the spokes.
"Three Words, Three Words, Three Best Words" he said as he rode in.
"1, 2, 3" "1,2,3"
"God is love" that is good, but is not the best
"God is great" also good, but that is not the best
Then with hands raised up he stopped and said, "H--E-- I--S-- R--I--S--E--N--"

He repeated this mantra over and over along with a few others.

On his hat he had his initials D.E.W.
I asked him about these letters.
He said, " D.E.W. will never WED"
"The girls I liked didn't like me and the ones that liked me the devil wouldn't take"

Charles Darwin is put center stage at the Museum of Natural History in London.

Read the Chapter on the French Revolution in the Great Controversy to see a perspective on this.

The Messiah of the University

The University (not just mine) has their own Messiah. In almost religious fervor, here are some celebrations centered around the birth of Charles Darwin:

Thurs. Feb. 12, 7 p.m.
Singing His Praises: Darwin and His
Theory in Song and Musical Production
Join Betty Smocovitis from UF’s zoology and history
departments for a lighthearted look at Darwin’s life
and work through song and film. Discover the issues
and controversies of Darwin’s Theory of Evolution and
new insights into his work and the relationship between
science and American popular culture.

Sat. Feb. 14, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Darwin Day
Curious about evolution? Here’s your chance to
explore the subject with Florida Museum research
and collections staff. See “missing link”
displays of fossils and specimens that
illustrate evolution in action. From 2:30 to 4
p.m. join Museum curators Jon Bloch, Steve
Manchester, David Reed and David Steadman
for an evolution symposium to discover the
science behind the theory. Florida
Museum curator Bruce MacFadden will
moderate the session.
