Taking it to the Next Level

May 26, 2006 — 1 Comment

North Carolinians (so that’s how you say it!) for Home Education are taking their meeting to a new level by having the event live-blogged. I have to say, this is such a blessing for thousands of people who don’t have the time to travel to North Carolina or some other event — they just need to sit down in front of their computer for awhile and refresh the page every so often. If the live-blogging is good (and it looks to be in NCHE’s case), the reader will feel like they’ve missed nothing at all.

Now, of course, this is all leading up to something.

As all of you know, I will be attending the Southern Baptist Convention in none other than the great state of North Carolina. I know most of my readers are not Southern Baptists, so I like to call this convention a “meeting of believers.” It’s a meeting of believers coming together to resolve to do something, and that is certainly worth watching, whether you are Charismatic or Baptist. So, June 7-15th will be a special week of live-blogging.

But that’s not all. I have been invited to live-blog the SBCHEA’s Summit meeting this year. Here’s a description:

On Wednesday, June 14th, 2006, 12:00pm – 4:00pm theologians and scholars at the highest level of Christian Education will meet with concerned pastors and parents at the 2nd Annual Kingdom Education Summit, hosted by the Southern Baptist Church & Home Education Association. The conference will be held during the 2006 SBC Annual Meeting in Greensboro, North Carolina, and all pastors, homeschooling families, ministry leaders, and encouragers are invited to attend.

So, coming soon to this blog will be me frantically writing, spell-checking, uploading, and posting like a madman. Stay tuned.
