Churches Counter Evolution by worshiping on Creation Sunday
Hundreds of congregations are honoring Charles Darwin’s birthday today by observing “Evolution Weekend,” but a number of other churches instead are celebrating “Creation Sunday” and “Stop Darwin Day” to honor and acknowledge God as the author of life and all creation.
As previously reported, numerous assemblies celebrate Darwin’s February 12th birthday with “Evolution Weekend” or “Evolution Sunday.” The more than 300 congregations paying homage to the notorious father of evolution this year hail from many different denominations, including Baptist, Lutheran, Methodist, Unitarian, Episcopal, and Presbyterian.
Since 2009, Tony Breeden, founder of CreationLetter.com, has led an effort to counter the evolution celebrations with the God-honoring Creation Sunday. In an interview with Christian News Network, Breeden described Creation Sunday as a “grassroots effort” that has seen surprising results.
