How American Teens Communicate – An Infographic

There are always a lot of opinions and theories about how today's youth communicate. We hear how they like their phones, but not the actual "phone" part of it. They don't like email because texting or Facebook is preferred. Rumors even abound about how they might prefer some face time if the information is useful to them. Well, we found some actual research on the subject done in the form of an info-graphic. Because pictures work for everyone!

Technology: Help or Hindrance to Christian Living?

Technology: Help or Hindrance to Christian Living?

Last Thursday in chapel, a moderated Staff and Faculty Panel discussed the issue of technology and how it effects our lives. For a modern student body that uses text messaging, Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube as naturally as they would use their own limbs, the ideas presented were challenging thought-provoking.

Attention all Alumni!

The Multnomah family wants to know what you are up to. You can help us share your story by making a video!

3 Easy Steps to Making Your Video

  1. Make Your Video
    • Start with: “Hi, I’m (name) and I graduated in (class year) with a (degree name).”
    • What you are currently doing (life, ministry, career)
    • Multnomah’s ongoing impact in your life
    • End with: “I’m (name) and Multnomah is part of my story."
  2.  Keep It Short
    • Under 2 minutes – or shorter if possible, but still riveting!
  3. Upload!
    • Upload your video to YouTube or another video sharing site and send the link to OR send us a DVD.

What Will Happen With It

We will choose a video each month to be our Alumni Spotlight Video. (If your video is chosen, we will send your video’s link to all Multnomah alumni in the Alumni Connection e-newsletter.)

We’ll likely add all of them to our YouTube Channel’s “favorites” section and upload them to the Facebook Fan Page:

Now go… Get rolling! Looking forward to hearing about your adventures! Nobody tells the Multnomah story like our Alumni!

If you don't get the regular Seminary Update email that circulates amongst students, faculty and staff, then you might be interested to know how you can stay up on the weekly happenings. I've highlighted a couple of items for you below.


Seminary News Highlights

  • Seminary Chapel Panel: Join us for a ministry panel sponsored by the Master's Cabinet on Tuesday, Nov. 3, 10:00-11:00 AM in T111/T112. The theme of the panel is “Seminary Education in Action: An Examination of Real-World Applications in Portland.” The panel will involve 3 guest speakers (prominent Christian figures in Portland) that represent many different angles of ministry (church pastors, church planters, academia, government, and non-profit organizations.)  There will be a time to ask questions that are relevant to both our student body and the panelist’s individual experience/expertise.  Light breakfast provided!  Please invite your families, neighbors, and friends!
  • Chaplain to Chaplain: Come join us for the second of the ‘Chaplain to Chaplain’ round table meetings. We would encourage anyone who is interested in chaplaincy, anyone who would just like to learn more about chaplaincy & how it works, or those who may want to do it as an internship, to join us. CPE supervisor, Kent Schaufelberger will be on campus Tuesday, November 10th to speak with chaplaincy students or anyone interested in chaplaincy. He will be sharing his valuable experiences as well as allow you a chance to ask some questions. If you would like to be a part of this informative meeting please sign up with Amber Kersey,, 503.251.6744. As this is taking place during lunch time (11:30-12:30) in the President’s Dining Room (next to the cafeteria) we encourage you to bring your own lunch (brown bag) or if you buy your lunch at the cafeteria – come in immediately with your food & join the meeting.

4885_102228505903_95576500903_2437480_982385_nA colleague of mine has been posting some great content about America's founding fathers on his Facebook account. He is Gary Cantwell, vice president of communications and marketing at Trinity International University in Deerfield, Illinois.

I told him I would steal his good idea and blog it here (In response, Cantwell said, "Thanks! I'm happy to be in the company of Dr. Lockwood, if only by quoting someone else.")

Evidences of Freedom

 From the Declaration of Independence

Source: US Declaration of Independence

"... all Men are created equal, that they are endowed, by their Creator, with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness"

"And for the Support of this Declaration, with a firm Reliance on the Protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honour."

untitledJohn Adams re: the Formation of Independence Day in 1776

Source: The Massachusetts Historical Society

"It ought to be commemorated as the day of deliverance by solemn acts of devotion to God Almighty."

From the Congressional Record

"To the distinguished character of a Patriot, it should be our highest glory to add the more distinguished character of a Christian.'' - US Congressman Robin Hayes on June 17, 2008

This Blog is Not Political

On such a day as this, the "4th of July", I should think that it is truly humbling to read through the entire context of the linked materials above and be reminded of what an impossibility it was to form the United States of America.

Even more than this, however, is the overwhelming sense of gratitude I have for the fact that God has afforded me things that I did not earn. A dry place to sleep, plenty of food, children who grow healthy, access to health care and many other things that people around the world do not have a chance at.

Independence Day = Devotion to God

Not least among these is the ability to openly worship Jesus! Praise him and do it often. Help missionaries who assist others around the world who have to worship in secret. Remember the students who train to know how to do this work.

Solemnly remember your brothers and sisters around the world on this day. This, a day of prayer and thanksgiving.
