Day 1
We'll have two sessions, with a break in between. There will an opportunity to purchase books and DVDs. Kids and parents/grandparents are highly encouraged to attend.

Session One: Whose “Voice”
Let's use the popular TV show, "The Voice" to make an important biblical point! There are many “voices” that are speaking to us in the world today. The media, video games, smart technology etc. are all having an impact. In this talk Carl will identify a number of those “voices” and share the impact they are having. He will also challenge us to make sure we’re listening and obeying the correct “voice!”

Session Two: Finding God in Ancient China
If the Bible is true, shouldn't the oldest writing known have references to it? Maybe it does! As a young boy Carl was intrigued by Japanese writing and Japan when his father brought back posters of his time wresting in Japan. (A toy robot also had a big impact!) From those simple beginnings Carl developed a desire to go to Japan and see it for himself. God graciously allowed this to happen and he spent over 4 years living there. During this time he met his now wife, Masami. His interest in the Japanese writing continued even after he became a Christian. It became even more intense when he met a lady who had studied the characters for years and found that the Gospel message is clearly depicted in the most ancient writing on the planet. In this talk Carl shares what was taught to him many years ago by Ethel Nelson and more from his personal studies over the years. This is a very intriguing talk.

Day 2
Session: Remote Control
Teach a generation "how" to think when watching TV and movies. This is a very important topic for Christians today. Today’s Christians are so used to the teaching of millions of years and evolution that they no longer notice how prevalent it is in our everyday lives. We wonder why 50% to 88% of the children raised in the Church leave by the time they are 18. Let's be honest, who is truly teaching our children? Currently children spend 900 hours a year in a school. That same student typically spends 1064 hours in front of a TV. If the church thinks they can overcome this much indoctrination by having the youth for 1 -3 hours a week by playing games and eating pizza, they're wrong! In this talk Carl shares numerous examples from Comic books, TV, Movies etc. showing how much indoctrination is taking place. Even in ‘family friendly’ materials there are blatant teachings that are undermining our young peoples ability to trust the Word of God. This talk will help Christians to get their ‘radar’ turned on in order to catch these falsehoods. It will also teach parents how they can use the media as a way to start communicating the truth of God’s Word. This talk will address the "Know it!" & "Share it!" challenge.
