Innovating Education in America

He Just Sued The School System

We all want to see a better education system in America. One of the greatest things about America has been the creative, innovative, entrepreneurial spirit of our people. Are we selling our birth right? It will cost something to change how we educate…in pockets around this nation people are innovating. The challenge is a Centralized Power Structure that resists change because it may result in a loss of power and the status quo. We’ve got to embrace change that brings educational innovation. Years ago the CEO of Taco Bell said, “Innovate or evaporate!” That’s the truth today’s students are shouting out to their parents, educators, and community leaders! We can do this…Make Education In America Great Again!

I love the idea of looking to other successful nations, cultures, and models of education. Let’s do this! What ideas do you have for “Reinventing and Innovating” Schools?

Moving Mountains – Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority

John Eldredge: Moving Mountains – Praying with Passion, Confidence, and Authority

“We want to eat whatever we want, but without our health collapsing down the road. We want our friends to be attentive, but without considering how our behavior impacts them. We want our kids to thrive, but without making sacrifices. But that’s not the way the world works. And prayer is no different.

In The Way It All Works, best-selling author John Eldredge (Wild at Heart, Killing Lions) gives a master class in effective prayer that will change the way you pray, and the results you get from it. In short, Eldredge shows how our life with God is a partnership in a shared mission. And in a partnership, everybody does some work.

For anyone who has ever wondered why their prayers don’t seem to be working, The Way It All Works will not only answer your questions: it will reshape your prayer life into a fulfilling—and effective—partnership with Most High.” John Eldredge

A Church After God’s Own Heart

 

jonathan-wellton

“I’m not trying to win some sort of ministry popularity contest, my goal is to give my children a better church than the one I was raised in.” Jonathan Wellton

What a provoking and burning quote! Jesus will have for Himself a Bride without spot or wrinkle! He is committed to His church! He loves His church and expects us to do the same. Yet we all sense and long that the Body of Christ is destined to live so much higher than we are experiencing! Lord we rend our hearts and programs! Encounter Christ is so much more than make our lives better! LORD let us experience the fullness of your dreams for our lives!

Love In The Little Things

successfulWhat’s the big deal? It’s just a shopping cart? Maybe it’s the trash you leave on the floor. Perhaps it’s the way you interact with a clerk, server or other person. Is it possible that small things matter more than we realize?

According to Jesus, it does. He said if you can be trusted to handle a little, than you can be trusted with much. He also said when you’ve done it unto the least of these, you’ve done it unto me. The context of that last statement was giving, serving and loving others well. Even a cup of water was rewarded. A terrifying thought, what if you didn’t do good unto the least of these? What if you withhold good from those that deserve it? Might we be judged for that? Well, Jesus is our Bridegroom, Judge, and King so we can let him sort out the rewards and judgments. Yet my heart is compelled to remind us all, do good when it seems no one well notice or recognize you for it. Be kind even when a server has neglected your table and seemed curt with you. Greet that cashier with a smile and an encouraging conversation.

It matters that we learn to love well. Thankfully love is one of the fruits of the Spirit. Holy Spirit the teacher will cultivate our heart and circumstances so that love may abound still more and more! Abide in Him and His fruit and character will be formed in you. 

*Authors note: Obviously, there are exceptions. The mother managing small child(ren) the sick or extremely weak person. These and probably a few others have legitimate reasons, beyond sloth, to fail to return their shopping cart/buggy to the designated areas. We’ve all got grace for those exceptions. The rest of us, we need to do our part.
