Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary Still Alive and Well

Spent the day taking one of my students at church to Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (#SEBTS) to visit the campus. He wants to go there in the fall and since it's my alma mater, I jumped at a chance to take him to visit the campus.

Every time I show up at +Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary  , I am impressed with the following:
1. The students are humble, godly people who love the school. They put their best foot forward for the benefit of their campus. Not many schools you can say that about these days.
2. The professors really care! It was that way in the mid 90s when I was a student, and remains so today. That starts at the top with Dr. Danny Akin, the President. He hung around after their chapel service and I introduced the young man from my church. Dr. Akin gave him time and offered himself, not his assistant or secretary, to help him in any way. He shared a vision for theological education that excited my friend. It tempted me to re-enroll and get another degree.
3. Still a beautiful campus. The new Patterson Hall and Jacumin missions building look awesome.
4. This school commits itself to becoming *a Great Commision school* and it shows.

My only disappointment was that chapel attendance seemed a little sparse. As a student, it was often so full we had to sit in close quarters. Then, only about 2,000 students called the school home and they held three services per week. Now over 3,000, maybe 3,500, students matriculated this semester and they only offer 2 services per week. Yet the attendance was about half as much as it was when I attended.

Still, a great school and I recommend it without reservation.

Took this with my HTC One at our church's Resurrection Celebration service. It's actually two images combined in Photoshop, but started with two pretty good images from my new M8.

This is almost good news. And isn't Hulu Plus already in there. I can search for programs and a link to the video on Hulu Plus shows up. Just watched "The 100" this way.

Would you want the Internet to name your daughter? Yes the same people who made Charlie Bit My Finger a big hit?

Well that's good. I'm glad it has the number pad. It's not shipping from Amazon so it will be like a week before I get it.

Coming soon. A review/comparison of the Amazon Fire TV and Roku 3. Which one is best for you?

 So let me get this straight. There's a mad man in Europe threatening to annex a nearby nation but Europe doesn't seem to have any desire to really stop him. The American people are not interested in getting involved since it's really Eurpope's conflict. And those sympathetic to this mad man are showing anti-Semitic tendencies. Is it 2014 or 1936?
