National Day of Prayer

All day / everywhere

The 64th annual National Day of Prayer, May 7, 2015, will have profound significance for our country. It is an unprecedented opportunity to see the Lord’s healing and renewing power made manifest as we call on citizens to humbly come before His throne. Our theme for 2015 is Lord, Hear Our Cry, emphasizing the need for individuals, corporately and individually, to place their faith in the unfailing character of their Creator, who is sovereign over all governments, authorities, and men. To further highlight our theme, we’ve chosen I Kings 8:28 as our Scripture for this year: “Hear the cry and the prayer that your servant is praying in your presence this day.” Many churches and communities will host local events. Learn more:' http://nationaldayofprayer.org/2015-theme-and-verse/

Prairie Restoration in Texas

7:00pm / St John's Lutheran Church, FM 465

Guadalupe County Chapter, Native Plant Society of Texas will host Walter Stewart, a summa cum laude graduate of Harvard University in physics and chemistry, who worked for many years as a research physicist at the National Institute of Health. While at the NIH he won fame by fearlessly exposing misconduct among other researchers -- and he won infamy by refusing to mow his lawn. Now retired to Austin, Stewart and his wife have spent eight years restoring 20 ordinary acres to a natural prairie that is now home to 380 native species. While urbanization has drastically diminished our natural areas, Stewart proves that ‘pocket prairies,’ even if surrounded by urban development, are feasible, educational, environmentally essential, and beautiful besides. For more about his battle to clean up bad research, see the interview in the February 1989 issue of OMNI magazine at https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B88DH9qxrie-bjhtXzFkekJaR1k/edit or https://archive.org/stream/omni-magazine-1989-02/OMNI_1989_02#page/n29/mode/2up/search/walter+stewart There is a plant/seed exchange and greeting at 6:30 PM followed by the program at 7:00 PM.
