Microsoft School of the Future

Microsoft and education?  I guess that shouldn’t be too surprising, since, well, the Microsoft domain extends to a lot of places and people.

But here’s an innovative project that I just found out about – the Microsoft School of the Future, in cooperation and partnership with the Philadelphia School District: http://www.microsoft.com/education/schooloffuture.mspx

What I’m reading (soon)

Key to the Missionary Problem, by Andrew Murray

William Carey’s “Enquiry”

I have been reading parts of a book entitled Operation World, and in the preface, the author referenced a work written by William Carey in 1792: An Enquiry into the Obligation of Christians to Use Means for the Conversion of the Heathens.  I found this book online – http://www.wmcarey.edu/carey/enquiry/anenquiry.pdf – and found what he wrote to be challenging and inspiring.

Here is a link to specific excerpts that I believe are right on target, taken from the full text that is linked to above: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=dgk48sf7_115gx3xr8

Please read carefully, considering the actions God would have you take in your life, to “be fruitful and multiply”!

Update

It’s been a while since I last posted, but I’ve come to a decision on this blog – I will not guarantee, as I have before, that I will post every day, or every other day.  No… that’s too limiting – it forces me to write regardless of whether or not I have something unique to write about.  From now on… enjoy reading!

New Direction

This blog is still “young”, so I’ll be changing the direction it’s heading (again).

I don’t have a whole lot of time on my hands, so I’ll be posting personal updates (school, etc), books I found interesting, thoughts, reflections, commentaries on different events, and more like that… though tending toward the first four. Similar, but different.

The best thing to do (if you don’t understand the above paragraph, which is understandable!), is watch and wait.  Also, if you haven’t noticed, there’s a section on this blog (lower right-hand corner) called “Google Reader Clips”.  This is a feed of all the blog posts that I find interesting when reading the 20+ blogs I subscribe to.  So, if you’re interested in what I think is interesting, check that out!

John Gill’s Exposition

In the resources section of this blog, I have chosen to only list websites that I think are not commonly visited, but contain valuable information. Take, for example, John Gill’s Archives. What a wonderful resource this is, to have, to read, to feast upon, perhaps even placing second, among all literature, after the reading of God’s Word.

Doug Phillips, of Vision Forum Inc. and Vision Forum Ministries highly recommends the writings of this faithful follower of Christ:

When I was a young man, my spiritual father, mentor, and pastor gave me a copy of John Gill. He told me it was the most trustworthy and foundational commentary in print. He explained to me that my hero Charles Spurgeon had feasted on John Gill’s writings when he was a young man. Nearly twenty-five years later, I want to once again publicly thank Pastor Robert Gifford for introducing me to the great John Gill who has remained my constant companion in my life. His cogent, orthodox, and careful scholarship has provided me with untold blessings. It does my heart great good to think that Dr. Gill’s incomparable commentaries are once again available for the libraries of Christian families.

I encourage you to visit the website mentioned above, and read, enjoy, and learn from a man who did, indeed, walk close with God.

Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind; that is, with all the powers and faculties of the soul, the will, the understanding, and the affections; in the most sincere, upright, and perfect manner, without any dissimulation and hypocrisy, and above all objects whatever, for this the law requires; and which man, in his state of innocence, was capable of, though now fallen, he is utterly unable to perform; so far from it, that without the grace of God, he has no true love at all to God, in his heart, soul and mind, but all the reverse; his carnal mind is enmity against God, and everything that is divine and good, or that belongs unto him: and though this is now the case of man, yet his obligation to love the Lord in this manner is still the same; and when the Spirit of God does produce the grace and fruit of love in his soul, he does love the Lord sincerely; because of the perfections of his nature, and the works of his hands, and because of the blessings of grace bestowed, and especially for Christ, the unspeakable gift of his love…

He Keeps Me Singing!

Yesterday, as I was singing the hymn He Keeps Me Singing, I was blessed by the fifth verse:

Soon He’s coming back to welcome me,
Far beyond the starry sky;
I shall wing my flight to worlds unknown,
I shall reign with Him on high.

It is easy for to forget, when living the Christian life, that the people we read about in the Bible are real people – and not just fictional story characters. It is our privilege and honor to have a deep, personal walk with the Lord – Jesus is alive, and we will meet Him someday, our coming King… this truly is our “blessed hope”!
