Rick Hammer: Vaccines a Sign of God’s Grace
Rick Hammer, former biology professor at Hardin-Simmons University, is well known in Abilene for his role in the development of a nature park at Kirby Lake and for his creation stewardship activism.
He recently had an article published on the Baptist News Global website titled, “Why I see COVID-19 vaccines as a sign of God’s grace.”
The article begins with, “I used to tell the Hardin-Simmons University students in my freshman biology class that scientific knowledge is a gift from God, but we have to do the hard work of discovering it and learning how to use it.”
Thank you, Rick, for an informative article that offers great references to backup your claims. My brother has been a research scientist for many years and I am a pastor in a mainline denomination. He and I have had several conversations much in-tune with what you have written. I’m sure your article will strike a chord with him as it has with me! I feel certain he will join me saying, “Amen! Amen! and again I say, “Amen!”

Thank you Janice. I hope your brother was able to read the article.
Rick, your article was so informative and passionate. I completely agree with your viewpoint and have difficulty understanding why anyone would decline a vaccine that can prevent illness and death.
Thank you Nancy!
