My 7-year-old African-American friend Tobias asked me a thought-provoking question the other day: Since Adam and Eve were white, where did black people come from? When I told him we dont know what color they were and asked him why he thought they were white, he said thats what he always saw in Bible-story books at church and in the library. My heart sank. I wondered if that might make him think he was inferior or possibly not even created by the Lord.
All people have their roots in the Creator God, and therefore all are equal. Thats what the apostle Paul told the Athenians: [God] has made from one blood every nation of men to dwell on all the face of the earth (Acts 17:26). We are all from one blood. Darrell Bock, in his commentary on the book of Acts, says, This affirmation would be hard for the Athenians, who prided themselves in being a superior people, calling others barbarians. However, because we all descended from our first parents, Adam and Eve, no race nor ethnicity is superior or inferior to another.
We stand in awe of our Creator, who made us and gives to all life, breath, and all things (v.25). Equal in Gods sight, we together praise and honor Him.
Read: Acts 17:22-31

Gaba Gaba Hey!
Rockumenary this evening, 1985 to be exact.
Thanks for the great music for the troops.
I heard that song for the first time on KNBR in San Francisco, when I was driving from Las Vegas to Barstow on I-15 in December 1971. I was on my way from Fort Gordon to Fort Lewis where I would take up my assignment with the 58th Signal Battalion.
It is my pleasure to post music for the TROOPS, wherever they may be, their families and supporters everywhere. ;-)
Where were you on Saturday, June 8, 1985?
The payroll project on which I had been working for the prior two years had just been terminated for going on too long and producing too little, and people were being shown the door. I called in an IOU and found a slot working for one of my users at the bank, and she provided me a place to hide until my enemies were all retired or fired.
Lets cue the Rockumentary theme!
This was one of the great feel-good tunes of the era. It came in at #10 this week.

FR CANTEEN MISSION STATEMENT
Showing support and boosting the morale of

and the family members of the above.
Honoring those who have served before.
The FR Canteen is Free Republic's longest running daily thread
specifically designed to provide entertainment and moral support for the military.
The doors have been open since Oct 7 2001,

We are indebted to you for your sacrifices for our Freedom.
I enjoy the tunes very much. Seeing Laurence Welk brings back the memory of our first black and white TV in 1960. My mother loved that show and bought anything he advertised. I’ll never forget the Geritol she made me and my three little sisters take. Awful stuff.
