So not everybody agrees with my perspective on the #values & potential of contemporary #poetry but I'm inclined to share them anyway. Dialogue, whether in complete agreement or not, can be a wonderful thing: #LinkedIn #Authors…

Few things are as incomprehensible as the intentional slaughter of children or the grief that follows such a heinous act. I hope it helps to know that millions around the world at this time are embracing the #survivors and their families with…

Poem: Committed to Him?

When we’re truly betrothed to Him,
we can’t help, but divinely succeed;
Christ’s not a Man that He should lie
and He’s promised to meet our needs.

Are we, not more important than birds
found about the land, trees and air?
Are we better clothed than flowers?
Are we committed to Him and His care?

Are we not made after God’s image?
As His Children, are we responsible,
for applying The Word to our lives?
Are we spiritually…

Poem: His Love of Words

He will make a way for me,
but I’ve got to do my part.
I must keep moving forward…
with His promises in my heart.

Staying in faith, not worried
about who’s holding me back;
I continue to press ahead
in His supply, without lack.

Everything is simple for God
and it’s a fact I’ve accepted;
this kinship persists, seeing…
that we are divinely connected.

Heaven’s Husbandman grafted me
into the sacred Vine for…

Poem: Having a Swell Time?

A double-minded person is unstable in his ways,
caught between opposing opinions of indecision;

For He alone possesses the sacred, eternal wisdom
that enables us to divinely live lives of victory,
as we “stand in the gap” on behalf of His Kingdom.

We can’t expect to survive- this cold world alone;
each…

Ajit Narayanan: A Word Game to Communicate in Any Language

First Published by Ted Talks and YouTube on March 10, 2014

While working with kids who have trouble speaking, Ajit Narayanan sketched out a way to think about language in pictures, to relate words and concepts in "maps." The idea now powers an app that helps nonverbal people communicate, and the big idea behind it, a language concept called FreeSpeech, has exciting potential.

Originally Published by Ted Talks and YouTube on Sep 11, 2014

How much do you know about the world? Hans Rosling, with his famous charts of global population, health and income data (and an extra-extra-long pointer), demonstrates that you have a high statistical chance of being quite wrong about what you think you know. Play along with his audience quiz — then, from Hans’ son Ola, learn 4 ways to quickly get less ignorant.
