    • Using revolutionary scanning technology, scientists have shed light on the world of mammals inside the womb. The images are from a National Geographic Documentary called “Extraordinary Animals in the Womb” and were captured by using a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics and small cameras to document the animals’ development from conception to birth.
    • The recent decision by the Boy Scouts of America to change its moral stance towards homosexuality is a tragic failure that calls for a response from Christians who are involved in Scouting.  This would include me, since both my boys are Boy Scouts and my church sponsors a Boy Scout troop.  Having prayerfully considered this matter, I would offer advice to fellow Christians with respect to two questions.  First, can we continue involvement in and support of Boy Scouts in light of this new policy?  The answer is No.  Second, when should we pull out of Boy Scouts?  The answer is By the end of the year, but not yet.
    • Not long after he entered the ministry there was a disruption in the Church of Scotland that resulted in the withdrawal of 451 ministers from the Established church, among whom were Bonar and a number of his friends. Together they formed The Free Church of Scotland.
    • I Heard the Voice of Jesus Say” was one of the hymns he wrote during his tenure at Kelso. This is perhaps his most famous song, having found good reception not only in Scotland but also in the wider English-speaking world.

    • Over the past couple of years there have been a number of changes on the Moore College faculty. Some long-term faculty members have retired, most recently Dr Robert Doyle, who had lectured continuously at Moore since 1982, and former principal Dr John Woodhouse whose extraordinary contribution to the College’s life spans four decades.
