Great fun for a snowed in Christmas
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 12-21-2010
So you are snowed in for the Christmas holidays with 5 kids at home. It's time to do what we all did growing up: "make our own fun". So we had a Junior apprentice experience. The kids designed a Mocktail (alcohol free cocktail) and had to come up with a recipe, a brand, a slogan and a Power-point / keynote presentation for it. We had a little budget for the ingredients that they had to work to and then off they went. The fun lasted all day. The drinks included…

[caption id="attachment_1894" align="aligncenter" width="500" caption="EU students went chalking all over campus"][/caption] 1. Go crazy with publicity The EU staff and students peppered the campus with advertising: helium balloons, hoodies, t-shirts, facebook invites –my favourite is chalking – which as it was explained to me is different from grafitti because it is a) allowed and b) it all comes off in the rain. Students chalked every where – on pavements, on steps, on bridges and walkways. They chalked so much they got metioned on the equivalent of the Metro newspaper in…

7 Best Childrens Bible Resources
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 12-16-2010
7. Bible Baddies, Bob Hartman This is an excellent resource for retelling the stories of the Bible. The stories are incredibly well written and set a gold standard for what could be a narrative sermon. This book should not be restricted to children and could make a great resource for being read out in church services. Bob Hartman is incredibly gifted and he has not shied away from some of the more difficult bible stories including Ehud and Eglon, Jezebel, Barrabus etc. I used to read these stories to my…

We had an excellent book group meeting last night and it was decided by unanimous decision John Lehrer's "The decisive moment" was by far the best book our book group read this year. So that's a group of 40 something men from the world of science, business, academia plus me!. This book was a fascinating insight into the psychology and neurology of decision making. Packed with riveting stories about fire fighters that make split second decisions in the middle of a forest conflagration,and pilots landing jetliners when the hydraulics have…

Interesting visualisation from visualizing friendships. The interesting question is who is left out? Predictably Africa and South America look pretty dark on this map. The digital haves and have nots seem to mirror every other kind of failure at redistrubution of wealth.

Well done Belfast Christian Union - really enjoyed speaking at your event for the second year in a row. Here's what I learned: 1. Ambiance makes a difference We used a beautiful church building for the event - the fact it had pews added to the feeling of a traditional event and having low lighting and candles gave it a really nice feel. The event became multisensory as a result of the setting and the lighting and the wonderful musical quality. 2. Bagpipes are a winner! We sang Amazing Grace…

Accordance or Logos? Bible Software review
Posted By :Date :Krish Kandiah | 12-14-2010
Bible Software Review With far more books than shelf space in my house, the idea that I could reclaim several inches of prime shelving by storing key Bible research tools on my computer is hugely attractive. Plus there is the added bonus benefit of being able to instantly search a huge number of resources from my laptop even when I am on a train or a plane. Bible software opens up a world of possibilities especially for non-Greek/Hebrew literate Bible teachers such as myself. This review will focus on the…
