That's what we do till midnight most nights since the debates and primaries started. We haven't missed one yet.

I have a friend in my cohort who had breakfast with and was introduced by Mike Huckaby at a businessman's breakfast in Boca Raton, and I think that made Earnie a bit envious. He has a powerful testimony and spent 20 plus years in business before coming back to Seminary. The Lord uses him in powerful ways as a culture warrior.

Ma Smith quote:
Driving down the road the other day, out of the blue, Ma smith piped up and said,

"You have to treat people right whether you like it or not."

Don't know what she was deliberating in her head at the time...


Visit Me


Visit me with wisdom Lord
I have none of my own.
All the truths that I’ve discerned
All the things I’ve known
You by grace and glory have shown

Visit me with compassion Lord
I have none of my own.
All the graces that I’ve learned
The sympathies that have grown,
Are by your tender mercies alone

Visit me
Lord visit me
Give me the eyes and the great grace to see
With eyes lit by your truth and light
Make me aware, give me insight
Lord visit me , awaken the dead
Stir my hard heart and my hard head,
Visit me, Lord visit me tonight.

Visit me with your Spirit Lord
The waning embers stir
Build up a fire like none that’s burned
A flame within my bones.
Refining me till I am yours alone

Visit me
Lord visit me
Give me the eyes and the great grace to see
With eyes lit by your truth and light
Make me aware, give me insight
Lord visit me , awake the dead
Stir my hard heart and my hard head,
Visit me, Lord visit me tonight.

Starwheel of Grace

Surrounded by eternal truth
Men run from it and hide
It ain’t going nowhere
And a puny life of pride
Ain’t gonna change a thing
That God has not ordained
It’s His way or the hard way
Cause the starwheel rolls along
The starwheel sings its song
And it has its destiny a destination
At the end of history is a cosmic conflagration
Resolved in a rhapsodic rhyme
As we wheel through time
As we whirl through space
On a starwheel of Grace

Like a crazy cosmic boomarang
It will return, and it will hang
Safe in the hand that saw it released
And in this New Jerusalem
we will find peace.
For now the spirals of change
Explode and rearrange
As a cosmic comic tragedy
Releasing its results to me
And disintegration reigns
As the starwheel rattles its chains
For now but not forever
For now but not forever
For it will all be resolved
But now the mystery
Remains unsolved.

Cause the starwheel rolls along
The starwheel sings its song
And it has its destiny a destination
At the end of history is
a cosmic conflagration
Resolved in a rhapsodic rhyme
As we wheel through time
As we whirl through space
On a starwheel of Grace

Studying the Effectiveness of the Discussion Forum in Online Professional Development Courses
As online professional development courses for teachers have grown, the discussion forum has become a locus of considerable research. This study analyzes the discussion forums in four different sessions of a short (4-week) online course for teachers from six schools in three states. This study also compares four methodologies, all of which have a visualization component.

Big names such as Johns Hopkins, Tufts and Notre Dame have also stepped in.Almost all MIT courses are now available on the internet for free and its OpenCourseWare website gets over 1 million hits per month, and an additional 500,000 hits to the translated versions.
