The disastrous Monday, 15 April, burning of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris leads to many questions and serious implications. Notre Dame de Paris (French for Our Lady of Paris), was built between 1163 and 1260. The cathedral was officially consecrated in 1345.
Most Famous Gothic Building in the World
No other building represents France quite like Notre Dame. It has been the most visited monument in France. Notre Dame is without a doubt the most famous Gothic building worldwide. The church of Notre Dame received almost 13 million visitors every year. Notre Dame has dominated the Paris skyline since the 1200s. The wood used for the framing of the cathedral consisted of 1,200 Oak trees, representing 21 hectares of forest.
On Friday, 29 March 2019, Christian Liberty Books ran a Creation vs Evolution Seminar and Children’s Programme. We were very excited to welcome 80 guests.
Dr Philip Stott was our guest speaker for the whole of the Seminar. The Seminar programme included the following riveting lectures: The Creation According to God’s Word vs The Creation According to the Wisdom of Man; What Went Wrong with Science?; The Rise and Fall of Millions of Years and The Rise and Fall of Evolution.
“And beginning at Moses and all the Prophets, He expounded to them in all the Scriptures the things concerning Himself… And they said to one another, ‘Did not our heart burn within us while He talked with us on the road, and while He opened the Scriptures to us?’”

On Saturday, 23 March, we held our second FIRE preaching workshop for this year. We hosted 40 people, including some of our Missionary interns. I was particularly blessed to see how many of the participants had come to previous workshops and were returning to continue growing in their knowledge of the Scriptures. It was also encouraging to hear that some are already implementing what they have learned from previous workshops that we have run.
