A Blog Awakens!

March 15, 2019

Where have I been?   Almost eight years have elapsed since my last post on this blog. I continue to be as eager as ever to promote Christian unity.  Somewhere along the line I felt like I had said what was on my mind on that subject.  So I turned my attention to blogging  a few Bible studies and then paused to address other issues.  And paused, and paused….

Today there are new threats to unity that need to be addressed.   The root cause of these threats is a lack of biblical teaching in our churches on certain challenging subjects. Some voices in our culture are growing more hostile toward the message of the Bible.  The church urgently needs its leaders to equip the Christians to stand strong in the face of pressures from the world.  They need to know how to answer the challenges they face with “Thus says the Lord!”

We also need to re-visit the biblical principles on how to conduct ourselves as Christians in an environment where there are differences on matters of opinion.  Nothing could be more pertinent today to our Christian unity.

Let’s get started.

Where’s This Blogger?

November 23, 2009

Crickets are chirping….

I’ve been swamped with some major projects in the past few weeks. That’s likely to continue to be the situation through the end of the year, but I hope to have a thing or two to say here along the way.

I’m in the process of putting together a pilot online course to evaluate a platform for delivering “extra-curricular” courses to our congregation. I’ll be using moodle and dimdim as the course delivery platform. If everything works out, I may be able to enable students to take the course inside Facebook using a Moodle plugin called Podclass. The class begins in early January.

Meanwhile I’m also trying to help with another online course experiment using Second Life.

I’m also busy with a project at work which is consuming a lot of my bandwidth. That should taper off by mid-December. Hopefully I’ll be able to resume a weekly blogging schedule soon.
