Love's the Only House

I never cease to be astonished by the ability of artists to capture messages of the Spirit.  A song of Martina McBride's has had a profound effect upon me.  You can view it here:…Continue

It happened at the stoplight

We’ve all been there.  You’re pulling out of a commercial parking lot and stop at a red light when you see them.  The homeless man/woman/family who is plantively holding their crude cardboard sign…Continue

Your Story

God has told us through His Word that we must, at all times, be ready to give an accounting for our faith in His son, Jesus (1 Peter 3:15).  This has always been a daunting task for me; one that I…Continue

Daniel

Daniel In 2007, my wife Sally and I hosted a group of 12 students and our church youth pastor for a mission trip to Gulu, Uganda.  The team was made up of Fallbrook high school seniors who had just graduated and were anticipating a college experience or the beginning of a career.  We were visiting Africa for the purpose of catching a vision for how these youth might direct their post-high school work in terms of a global missions experience.  We were helping them “vision” how they might serve…See More

Hero

At our 40th high school reunion I found myself in a group of guys reminiscing about the good ol' days.  Some of us had even gone to junior high together.  One such guy was Steve Ogle.  Steve was, and I don't know how to put this gently, kind of a dork.  Although he was quite bright, he had an odd voice and was socially awkward.  He…See More

Apologizing

Some years ago my church had a team of guys who would move people free of charge.  One of us had a heavy duty truck and large double axle trailer that could be used to move a lot of household effects quickly.  It was a valuable service reserved for people, typically single ladies or elderly, who needed a free helping hand.  It was a good service project and fellowship experience for all the guys.One week a youngish man came into our church office looking for moving help.  Apparently he had been…See More

No such thing

Lead singer Jon Foreman was asked if Switchfoot is a “Christian” band.His response is worth pondering.Switchfoot is going secular. Sort of.“To be honest, this question grieves me because I feel that it represents a much bigger issue than simply a couple SF tunes. In true Socratic form, let me ask you a few…See More

boy 9-10

Boy 9-10Grace from another world.  I had a bittersweet day yesterday.  When I picked up my 61-year-old disabled younger brother Kim at his board and care home yesterday he was pretty agitated as he handed me a small post-it note.  Written on it were the words “boy 9-10.”  Kim was brain-damaged at birth by a then-unknown blood…See More

In-N-Out

Rob Bell says: "If the gospel isn't good news for everybody, then it isn't good news for anybody. And this is because the most powerful things happen when the church surrenders its desire to convert people and convince them to join. It is when the church gives itself away in radical acts of service and compassion, expecting nothing in return, that the way of Jesus is most vividly put on display. To do this, the church must stop thinking about everybody primarily in categories of in or out,…See More

According to Thomas Friedman "what we learn today in school will be outdated by tomorrow, and therefore, the most successful people in the 'flat world' will be those who can adapt and learn quickly. The greater our curiosity and passion for learning, the greater chances we will have for success later in life" (O’Neal, 2006)

Are Professional Learning Communities the Future of Education?

I believe that distributed professional learning communities will be the next major frontier in education. Because of the complexity, size and growth of the emerging global knowledge base, individual solutions to market, ecological, political, economic, health and other critical problems will require the best combined thought of socially interactive thinkers. Problems are going to be too big and developing too fast for individual researchers to solve. Some of the most advanced manufacturers… Continue

Ning Pros and Cons
To begin with an analogy, a ning is like a fraternity house where there are common living areas but also each resident has his own customized bedroom which he can decorate (or not) to his heart’s content. He can use any theme or props to develop his bedroom culture and he can invite or restrict any and all visitors. At the same time, he can go into the common areas and engage people there (or not) subject to the general culture of the house.
Nings seem to be about this interplay between public and private spaces and interactions. Nings enhance dialogue with their threads and interest forums. Nings hold on to individual contributions even if they are not embraced by other participants. They seem more naturally true to an actual conversation that two or more people might have. Whereas a vocal conversation must be held within the minds of the participants, nings keep track of conversations textually and graphically and hold them up for all to see and recall. They can even link different conversations and synthesize new thoughts from them. The inherent structure of a ning is conversation. Content flows out of the contributions that the conversation brings about.
People seem to like the autonomy that nings provide. I can build a personal network of conversation about the topics that are most important to me, yet have the structure and organizing support of a generalized ning above and around me. I’m tied to a general audience by common ideas and preferences, but I can also create my own thought and social space. Nings also allows you to design your group (forum) any way you want with features that usually differ from other groups. Ning facilitates unrestricted movement off of and onto the site to other locations like blogs or wikis. You can even export these features to other outside websites (slideshows) and make portals (badges) that direct potential members to your ning from outside the site. Ning tools and apps are like those of a fine woodworker: exacting, elegant, and well thought –out. Ning’s goal seems to be to expand its social network off their site and out into the Web. They want Ning = Web in the user’s mind.
