Between Two Worlds

Every fall I teach Anthropology, primarily from a position of Cultural Anthropology, designed to help Bible college students interact more positively with people from other cultures. Having lived overseas for nearly two decades, I have a pretty good idea of what makes up Latin American culture. My kids were all born in South America. Until […]

The Touch of the Master’s Hand

My heart is heavy this afternoon. We have just lost a colleague due to a moral failure. Our faculty is already minimized, with a dear brother on sabbatical, and a couple on medical leave. Others, already overworked will have to pick up the slack. In our “in house family meeting” our president told a story […]

10 Chapters a Day

Have you ever gotten to the point where you want to read the Bible in a systematic way, but have fallen behind? Over the years, I have read the Bible through using a variety of systems. After using each system for a while, I find that I begin to lose interest. Let me try to […]

Reflecting on OCC’s Greek Program

I’ve been teaching NT Greek at OCC for a number of years now. I have enjoyed co-teaching with my advanced Greek professor, Kenneth L. Boles, at both the 2nd year Greek level, and 3rd year Greek level. When I started teaching Greek, I taught 1st year students for a number of years. The last several […]

We’re Praying for Chile

Chile was devastated by one of the strongest earthquakes in history early Saturday morning. 25 years ago (almost on the same weekend–last weekend before the school year was to begin), Santiago was struck by an earthquake with a magnitude of 8.0 on the Richter scale (as a comparison, the January earthquake in Haiti was 7.0). […]

It is for calves, and I like it in frozen form (perhaps with strawberries) . . .

I did not write this. The author’s name is Mark Lightman. But I liked it . . . Μαρκος τοις δυναμενοις αναγιγνωσκειν Ελληνιστι. Χαιρετε, ω φιλοι! Πως εχετε; Εγω Μαρκος καλως εχω.Σημερον ὁ τοπος του Μαρκου «γαλα» εστιν. Γιγνωσκεις το ρημα «γαλα;» γαλα ποσις εστιν. Πινομεν γαλα. Γαλα λευκον εστιν. Εκ βοῶν γαλα εστιν. Μαρκος […]

I haven’t blogged for a very long time . . .

I thought that the next blog I would post would be a reflection on the movie Avatar. I still haven’t written that one down. Today is Super Bowl Sunday. In my e-mail this morning was a very thoughtful reflection on attitudes of Christians towards sports. It was written by my Chilean friend, Fernando Soto Dupuy, […]
