In 2007 a group of us gathered to plan a Darwin’s Day 2009 celebration. We were going to celebrate the Creator’s majesty with drama and music. We outlined a story. A script writer would pen the drama. I had written thirteen songs based on thirteen creation passages in the Bible. A professional musician would arrange the music for his group. They would perform music and drama. We would book venues around the city. Then … our script writer started grad school. Our professional musician changed jobs. Both had to bow out due to time constraints. We had no Darwin’s Day 2009 celebration.
What could I do with a bare outline of a story and a few songs? I finalized the story line and wove it between songs I had written. I now had a musical that any worship team (yours!) could adapt and make their own.
The Majesty of the Maker!
He’s a homicide detective and a new father. He wants something real, something solid to pass on to his son.

Son of God’s Love from Colossians 1:15-17
Life cannot exist unless the universe is
Fingerprint from Isaiah 40:21-18
The Genesis creation account matches reality.
The Odds from Genesis 1
The Genesis creation account of man matches
Family Tree from Genesis 2:7-25
He discovered the Bible’s claims about God and people match reality:
People are immeasurably valuable, yet deeply
Garden of Decision from Genesis 3:15
If the Creator became a man, he would be like
The Word from John1:1-18
Jesus promises to meet the deepest longings of
Christmas Every Day from Revelation 21:1-5
The Creator’s promises can be tested.
A Sure Bet from Jeremiah 33:25-26
We instinctively know that the Creator exists.
Secret Lives from Romans 1:18-20
He weighed the evidence:
Creation shows the existence and grandeur of
A Prayer from Psalm 19:1-3, 14
The Creator is good, loving, and just.
I Cry to God from the book of Job
The Creator can be trusted when pain engulfs.
You Are There from Psalm 139
