Just in case I hadn’t shown you before, I find lots of very encouraging sermons, quotes, and short videos on this website. It is the website of a Bible-based School in Colorado, started (at least in vision) by a couple named Eric and Leslie Ludy. Enjoy!!
"Sing we of the modern city, Scene a like of joy and stress; Sing we of its name-less people In their urban wilderness. Into endless rows of houses Life is set a million fold, Life expressed in human beings Daily born and growing old.
In the city full of people, World of speed and hectic days, In the ever changing setting Of the latest trend and craze, Christ is present, and among us; In the crowd we see Him stand. In the bustle of the city Jesus Christ is every man.
God is not remote in heaven, But on earth to share our shame, Changing graph and mass and number Into persons with a name. Christ has shown, beyond statistics, Human life with glory crowned, By His time-less presence proving People matter, people count!”
- “Sing We of the Modern City” Adventist Hymnal #194, words copyrighted in 1968
“The world has lost a visionary. And there may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented.”—President Barack Obama (via fienen)
Today in class, as I was helping a student at his desk, I look up and across the room toward a suspicious set of noises. What do I see? I see a small boy, kicking a much larger boy, who immediately picks up a chair and begins to run toward the small boy. Watching my teaching career flash before my eyes, I use my best teacher voice to bring the situation to an abrupt halt, and subsequently send both boys into the hall so I may speak with them outside the class. After several minutes of instructing the class with the activity I would like them to work on, I go to the hall. The boys quickly choke back smiles, and explain to me that the whole thing had started - with a tickling match?
