The end of the semester marks a time to spend with family and get ready for the holidays.  This year, after our state convention in Austin, ETS came, then I traveled to Cuba.  As you can imagine, when I returned home, I was ready for some serious quality time with family.  In short, that means blog’s out, and I’ll see you after New Year’s.

Harvard and the New Direction of Higher-Ed Curriculum December 15, 2006

Harvard University has decided to drop a controversial proposal that would require undergraduates to study religion as a part of a 30-year currculum revision.  In this article (here), CNN picks up the Reuters’ post concerning the recent decision.
This curricular tack should come as no surprise, but you should be aware of the changes.  Why?  Because IVY League institutions generally chart the course for the nation’s universities–public and private.  Harvard’s influence is easily seen and difficult to measure.

The article explains, “Harvard professor Louis Menand, who co-chaired the committee that drafted the plan, said religion competed with other, equally valid subjects. “It is an important subject, but nationalism is an important subject, and race is an important subject and markets is an important subject,” said Menand.

From a dean’s perspective (Covenant Theological Seminary), read another take (here).

Back from Cuba December 8, 2006

Well, after many nights of sobering ministry, I have returned from Cuba.  I am sure that I will reflect further upon my time there, but above all, I realize I have seen in the believers there a sense of dependance upon the Most High that consumes every area of their lives.  From food to shelter to the preached Word in Sunday worship, these brothers and sisters are desparate for fellowship in the Spirit and for the truth that is found in the Word of God.
