Woodland Museum of Biblical Archaeology

On February 4th we went on a field trip with Creation Works to the Woodland Museum of Archaeology. I had no clue we had such a museum close to us! It was fascinating! Pat Roy, from Creation Works did a presentation about dinosaurs and the Bible with half the group while Pastor Morgan did a guided tour of the museum with the other half. Then we traded. Pastor Morgan is also and archaeologist and travels to the Middle East once a year to dig. He told us that they are pretty sure they have found the remains of the city of Sodom. The location is just right, and the archaeological evidence is there! How exciting! In fact, he has a roofing tile from the dig site that the kids got to smell, and it smells like sulfur (the fire and brimstone that God used to destroy Sodom).
