Chapel Service: Dr. Dave Mahan - March 13-14 / Tom Bulick (Student Life) - March 20

Audio 10a consists of the following recording:
Title: Dr. Dave Mahan – Praising the Creator by Caring for Creation; The Importance of Naming.
Dr. Dave Mahan of Michigan State University addresses chapel in regards to environmental stewardship. This recording includes two chapel services, the first focuses on the importance of seeing environmental issues as ethical issues, the biblical references to caring for all of creation - not just mankind - and on the fact that the church must attempt to answer the environmental questions. He argues that caring for the world is an act of love for God and His Creation. At time code 23:29 the second chapel service begins. This session focuses on the importance of God’s command to Adam to name the creatures of the world. Dr. Mahan argues that through naming a person or creature is given a sense of identity and purpose. If they never learn the names of the creatures who are effected by the environmental crisis, people feel no connection to them. God calls people by their names, therefore people should call the creatures of the Earth by name. Through these talks, Dr. Mahan refers to a number of passages of scripture. In the first talk he refers to Psalm 19, Psalm 104, Psalm 147, 1 Timothy 4:4, John 3:16, Genesis 1:26, Genesis 2, Genesis 2:15, and Leviticus 25. In his second talk, Dr. Mahan refers to Isaiah 40:26, Genesis 2:19, and Hosea 1-3. He recommends “ Project earth : preserving the world God created” by Bill Badke who is an author and librarian with ACTS.
Audio 10b consists of the following recording:
Title: Tom Bulick (Student Life) – Reflects on The House of Mourning
Tom Bulick reflects on the effect TWU's 1991 Aviation accident has had on him personally and how he has grown through personal reflection. He references Ecclesiastes 7:2-4 - that it is better to attend the house of mourning then the house of pleasure since the house of mourning causes one to reflect on one’s own mortality. He talks about his attendance at the funerals of Danny Penner, Teena Daly, and Jeffrey Helzer. Mr. Bulick was amazed by the number of people these individuals had influenced in their lives and it caused him to reflect on the amazing degree of influence we all have on one another. He reflects on how an individual will never really understand how many people deeply love him or her. Mr. Bulick also mentions the responsibility of all people to be a positive influence on the world in their day to day lives, for it is the insignificant moments that make the greatest difference in a life.
