Customized Emerging Church Google Search Engine

I spent a couple hours this morning creating a customized emerging church search engine using Google’s new Co-op feature. I’ve added tons and tons of websites and blogs that deal with emerging church issues. My sources for this list came from Scot McKnight, Ryan Bolger, The Daily Scribe, Andrew Jones, Jordon Cooper, Adam Cleaveland andContinue reading “Customized Emerging Church Google Search Engine”

Surviving a Study Program With EarPlugs, a Hiding Place, and Lots of Coffee.

We had a great, and much needed, weekend. Thanks to everyone who helped to make my birthday awesome. Emily and I took it easy all day Saturday. It was good because I actually feel pretty well-rested and ready to go. The next couple weeks are going to get crazy around here. As most of youContinue reading “Surviving a Study Program With EarPlugs, a Hiding Place, and Lots of Coffee.”

How to Setup Your Blog (WordPress) For Students

This was cross-posted over on Ryan Bolger’s class blog, which I wanted to announce anyway. If you’re interested in seeing what we’ll be up to this quarter jump on over there and check it out. I am looking forward to the class I am a teacher’s assistant for “Transforming Contemporary Cultures.”

Books For An Introduction To Studying Bible and Theology

My housemate Chase and I were having lunch the other day and we started talking about important books that we would use if we were going to teach Bible and Theology students. Now granted we’re both from more of an Evangelical stream of Christianity so I recognize that some of these books may not appealContinue reading “Books For An Introduction To Studying Bible and Theology”

What Are Your Favorite Quaker Books?

I just finished reading Martin’s post about him finally finishing John Woolman’s Journal and it got me thinking about how I enjoyed Woolman’s journal so much.  Then I started thinking more about books (not something that’s all that hard to do, really.)  This reminded me to take “A Description of The Qualifications Necessary to AContinue reading “What Are Your Favorite Quaker Books?”

Reflections on Doing Quaker Research

For class we were asked to write a short reflection on our spiritual journey and how it’s led us to doing the kinds of dissertations we’re preparing for.  I thought I would post it mainly because I don’t think I’ve written much about my personal journey, my “convincement??? or why I am doing the researchContinue reading “Reflections on Doing Quaker Research”

Research Design – Some Preliminary Questions

Today we spent 8:30-5 minus 1.5 hours for lunch talking about what research is, why it’s important, what our research will entail and why we are doing it.  It wasn’t a bad day, considering how long the day was I was able to stay pretty well engage.  We did a fair amount of group workContinue reading “Research Design – Some Preliminary Questions”

So School Begins Today: What’s Coming up For Gathering In Light

This past friday I finished up one year tenure as Fuller Seminary’s textbook buyer.  I began working at the bookstore in the beginning of summer 2005 and shortly thereafter I took over with this full-time position.  Well, even though I had a hard time adjusting to full-time work and no school I have enjoyed theContinue reading “So School Begins Today: What’s Coming up For Gathering In Light”

Cheap Mac Apps for Students and Teachers

I’ve been thinking about compiling one of those “favorite apps” posts that we mac users like to do (too often no doubt). But in keeping with the tradition of mac-lovers I thought it would be good for someone to have a limited list of apps useful for educational purposes (i.e. cheap and easy to use).Continue reading “Cheap Mac Apps for Students and Teachers”
