Would you have had the courage to raise your hand as this Anchorsaway graduate did?
Her daughter, Cassidy, recently attended her sociology class and they broke up into small groups. They discussed evolution vs. creationism. One other person in her group supported creationism. The class then got back together as a whole and the professor asked who in the class supported creationism. Cassidy raised her hand and looked around to see she was the only one with her hand up. The guy in her group didn't have the courage to raise his hand in front of the whole class. Even worse, Cassidy looked around and recognized a guy who attends a college night at the local church. He is even a leader of a small group at the church. He wasn't raising his hand either!! The professor asked Cassidy to support her claim for creationism. She went into detail about why she believes what she believes regarding creationism. The professor told her afterwards that she very articulate and did excellent job of explaining her position. He is not a believer and said he would even look into some of the facts that she used. She shared her story with her mom and her mom said thank goodness you knew all that from Bible study and church. She told her mom she didn't learn it there, she learned most of it from the Bible class we did with the Anchorsaway curriculum.
