Sophia Network

19 11 2007

A new network for women in youth ministry has been launched.  The Sophia Network aims to celebrate women in youth work and ministry, what we have achieved and what we are contributing to the kingdom of God. We want to increase the visibility of women in youth work, making the wider church aware of the fantastic work that women are doing. The Sophia Network will enable women in youth work to connect with each other, share skills and experiences and offer encouragement and support.

Shift6 (or ^6, the keyboard shortcut for ‘insert here) is a new blog looking at mobile device use, particularly among young people.  well worth a read or adding to your RSS feeds.

Highlights so far are some information on BLYK, a new invite only mobile phone network for 16-24 year olds, a great blog about why Radiohead’s digital back catalogue release is cool but way too expensive and some good stuff about iPhone, Google Phone, mobile development and all that stuff.

Hi Guys

I started reading a book called ‘A New Kind of Youth Ministry’ and started watching one of Rob Bell’s lectures called ‘everything is spiritual, and I started thinking about how I communicate God’s story to young people. I got very frustrated and wrote a blog with my rantings.

Professors Today

8 11 2007

Following on from the Students Today video over at KSU a response came entitled ‘A Vision of Professors Today’.  Read it HERE.

I have to say that some of the people who have made the biggest impact on me are lecturers or professors.  I teach at ICC as an ‘extra’.  I have a job that lets me spend time on it but at the same time I’m doing a Masters and the people who teach me are great.  They are knowledgeable and inspiring.  I hope you find some people who inspire you.
