Booker T Washington invited Carver to Tuskegee:
I cannot offer you money, position or fame. The first two you have. The last, from the place you now occupy, you will no doubt achieve. These things I now ask you to give up.

Jesus Christ is the Creator, Sustainer, and Redeemer of all things—the implications are profound. Colossians 1:15-23 and Romans 8:18-27 emphasize “all things” even though we quickly tend to focus on Christ's redemption of us and ignore the rest of His creation. My selfish, self-centered perspective can easily blind me to the truth that redemption isn’t just about me, but is about all of His world. Creation care is a logical extension of a desire to honor the One who made everything, actively holds it together and died to restore it to its original good purposes. The way I teach about God's world will reflect what I really believe about Christ.
“Faith and science activities for your classroom—designed by teachers for teachers”
By Mark Witwer, February 17, 2022, Faith and Science, The CACERoundtable
From the very start of my career, I simply loved teaching. The fact that I was teaching in a Christian school was a plus, but as a rookie, I could not articulate a clear philosophy of Christian education.
By the time I retired from full-time teaching two years ago, I had come to love teaching Christianly. I describe teaching Christianly as nurturing minds and hearts by allowing my faith to inform both what I teach (offering a Christian perspective on the subject matter) and how I teach (attending to the formative power of practices).
The discussion that follows explores some of my favorite strategies for teaching Christianly, grouped under two broad topics: God’s Genius and The Embrace of Controversy. My focus is on science, but most of these ideas can be adapted to other disciplines as well.

The accomplishments of Dr. George Washington Carver in the field of botany-chemistry are legendary, having developed 300 products from the peanut, and 118 from the sweet potato. The products Carver invented include printers ink, shaving cream, plastics, adhesives and much more.
But Carver only owned three patents on his many creations. Why? Because he didn't feel it was right to take money for something God gave him.
"I am not interested in science or anything else that leaves God out of it."

God has made all things for a purpose. Now let’s see few examples from biology—the living science.
"Gravity explains the motions of the planets, but it cannot explain who set the planets in motion... This most beautiful system of the sun, planets and comets, could only proceed from the counsel and dominion of an intelligent and powerful Being."
“The more I study nature, the more I stand amazed at the works of the Creator. I pray while I am engaged in my work in the laboratory.”
"Any system of education…which limits instruction to the arts and sciences, and rejects the aids of religion in forming the character of citizens, is essentially defective."
“…a global movement that equips university students and faculty to give historical, philosophical, and scientific reasons for following Jesus Christ”
Joe Neff, editor of The Principal Connection introduced me to this series recently. It "is particularly designed for Christian students and others associated with college and university campuses.... The contributors...explore how the Bible has been interpreted in the history of the church, as well as how theology has been formulated. They will ask: How does the Christian faith influence our understanding of culture, literature, philosophy, government, beauty, art, or work? How does the Christian intellectual tradition help us understand truth? How does the Christian intellectual tradition shape our approach to education?"

"Understanding more of science doesn't make God smaller. It allows us to see His creative activity in more detail."
By Heidi Schaeffer at the Christian Academy in Japan
Im excited that my 5th grade science students can connect course content to Biblical teaching, resulting in them making healthy choices. In an essay at the end of a recent health unit, students wrote things like, I learned that
if you're not spiritually healthy, it will affect your physical health.
