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!

Yesterday we posted a somewhat cryptic looking teaser that referenced some alleged tomfoolery that our President Dan Lockwood was mixed up in. Well, today the announcement was made by the man himself on his Facebook page.

If you've been on campus lately, you've likely seen the activity related to a great new youth event happening soon called Spring Thaw.
*UPDATE (3/7/2011): all the links to the Spring Thaw website were updated to the the new url.
Maybe we should call it "Cinco de Multstache"...
Back, by popular demand, is the annual Cinco de Mustache celebration blog post. This year's celebration saw a record turnout of finely groomed undergrad gentlemen and some brave faculty.
We'll post more information in the coming days as more pics and vids come our way, but for now, here's this:
Stay tuned in the next week or so for our latest installment in the Cinco de Mustache series: "Multnomah Mustaches We Wish We Had."

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.

This information is posted on the MBS Facebook page every week.
A 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.")

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

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.
