Rethinking education

Here's a great animation of a presentation done by Sir Ken Robinson, who proposes some great ideas for how we might rethink and re-model our educational processes:

I'd love to see this worked out into curricular models and nuts-and-bolts concepts.

Spiritual Life Conference 2010

Our Second-Annual Spiritual Life Conference will be on November 5-7. This year's conference is focused on the subject and theme of "Christ-Centered Worship" and our speaker will be Dr. Mark Dalbey.

The conference will include lectures on Friday evening, Saturday evening, and Sunday morning; an open Q&A Lunch on Saturday; and worship together on Sunday morning. The cost is kept as low as possible to make it easier to attend: $10 for members/regular attenders of HWPC, and $20 for non-members/non-regulars.
