Hi again Bodie! And a good "howdy-do" to ya! Welcome to the conversation; and thanks for the swift reply to my question on the "experts" page. It's my intent, as you have suggested to approach the pastor with my intent after we've settled into a new home-church. Creation science is hugely important and exciting as you've noted, and I agree fully with you (and AnswersinGenesis) that it is totally secondary to sharing the Gospel of Christ with the lost and leading as many as possible to a saving relationship with our Lord while were here.
