first_img Rector Pittsburgh, PA Canon for Family Ministry Jackson, MS May 3, 2018 at 6:56 pm Correct me if I am wrong, but I understand that Taylor left the Episcopal Church and Christianity. Her “celebrity author/preacher status” may have caused a burn-out. Or did she “recover” and return to our faith? Thanks! Ann-Marie Montague says: The dozen preachers in the top 12 — academics, pastors and authors — were picked from nearly 800 nominees.Preaching experts in the Academy of Homiletics and the Evangelical Homiletics Society judged how much nominees’ preaching matched criteria that included their selection of biblical texts, the relevance of their sermons, and their ability to deliver them in language people can understand.It’s been 22 years since Baylor last produced such a survey. Four names appear on both the 1996 list and the one released Tuesday, including Taylor.The Baylor preaching center sent the 1996 criteria to more than 500 homiletics professors for their input on criteria for the new survey. Members of the two homiletics societies were then asked to nominate as many as five people who met the new criteria. A total of 179 members — more than 30 percent of the membership of those two societies — submitted names. The final choices were narrowed down from 39 individuals who received the largest number of nominations.

Photo: Baylor[Religion News Service] A dozen pastors known for their consistently stellar performances in the pulpit  made Baylor University’s list of the most effective preachers in the English-speaking world.The list of 11 men and one woman, the Rev. Barbara Brown Taylor, an Episcopalian, was chosen by scholars of homiletics, or the art of preaching and was released May 1.“In a world where talk is cheap and there seems to be no end to it, the preacher has to recover the priority and power of the word,” said W. Hulitt Gloer, director of the Kyle Lake Center for Effective Preaching at Baylor’s Truett Theological Seminary in Waco, Texas.“Words are the tools of the preacher and that gives them incredible power,” Gloer added.

Stirling Mortlock wins it for the Wallabies in 2000

first_imgThursday Mar 5, 2009 Stirling Mortlock wins it for the Wallabies in 2000 Last weekend we saw Wallaby Stirling Mortlock kick the crucial winning kick for the Brumbies against the Crusaders in the Super 14. Mortlock called on all his years of experience in international rugby, reminding us of another huge moment in his career, way back in 2000. It was the Tri Nations nine years back and Australia visited Durban hoping for their first series victory, and an away win against the Springboks. Making his debut in the same year, Stirling Mortlock had a brilliant first season for the Wallabies, breaking numerous records including becoming the fastest Australian to reach 50 and 100 Test points, scoring the most points and highest number of penalties in his first five Tests, and making history by becoming the first Australian to score 20 points of more in four consecutive internationals. It was his composure under pressure though that was truly tested in this famous match, as with time almost up, the Wallabies looked to be out of it after a massive Braam Van Straaten penalty. They snuck in the backdoor though as referee Paul Honiss awarded a penalty close to the sideline. Up stepped the young Mortlock, with his full head of hair and skinny frame, but with the same coolness we saw against the Crusaders recently. He slotted the kick, breaking the hearts of the Springboks and the Kingspark faithful, but sending the Wallaby players and fans into raptures. “I was not thinking about the championship, just the match. I have been in that situation several times and missed during the last couple of years,” Mortlock modestly stated afterwards. The win secured the visitors the Tri-Nations crown, with the special moment being a stand out highlight in Mortlock’s highly successful career thus far.Time: 03:12 ADVERTISEMENT Posted By: rugbydump Share Send Thanks Sorry there has been an error Related Articles 81 WEEKS AGO scottish prop saves fire victim 84 WEEKS AGO New Rugby X tournament insane 112 WEEKS AGO Vunipola stands by his comments supporting… From the WebThis Video Will Soon Be Banned.

Their arrest came three days after a NISA raid on the Mogadishu headquarters of the leading national daily Xog Ogaal and the arrest of its editor, Abdi Aden Guled.

Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Governmental Measures Target Expanded Access to Affordable Housing 2 days ago Data Provider Black Knight to Acquire Top of Mind 2 days ago In a new report published by the Harvard Joint Center for Housing Studies (JCHS), former Freddie Mac CEO Don Layton discussed the question of servicer finances during the COVID-19 pandemic.According to Layton, mortgage servicers and government representatives have “fundamentally different views of how the government takes extraordinary actions in times of extraordinary stress to ‘rescue’ industries and markets for the greater good.” As Layton explains, tensions are high because “the survival of hundreds of companies in the mortgage industry is believed to be at risk, along with major disruption to the country’s housing finance system if they fail.”Under the recently signed CARES Act, borrowers do not need to show any proof of financial hardship in order to skip payments for up to a year. Layton notes that, given the economic downturn, the industry has assumed that forbearances like this could apply to an “unprecedented” 25% of all mortgagesAccording to Layton, a large uptick in forbearance assistance through the CARES Act would generate the requirement that servicers advance funds to MBS investors in amounts far beyond what was contemplated when the forbearance program was developed in 2017-18. He estimates that it totals in the tens of billions of dollars, depending upon how long and deep the economic downturn is, as well as how much lost household income the government replaces via various programs.Non-bank servicers could be especially impacted, as they do not have the liquidity reserves that banks typically do. In response, the industry is proposing a line of credit at the Federal Reserve where servicers can borrow the funds needed to make the required advances. Layton cites Ginnie Mae’s recent announcement that it is beginning to implement a program to cover the advances on principal and interest payments being made by non-bank servicers.Layton proposes two paths for resolution, including implementing the GSE programs for sub-servicing or servicing transfer, and having the administration to change its strategy and agree to the Federal Reserve line of credit alternative, but with the addition of usual extraordinary-action policy restrictions rather than the hold-harmless proposal of the industry.Taking one of these routes, Layton notes, may lead to a remedy “in relatively short order.” Demand Propels Home Prices Upward 2 days ago Related Articles last_img read more

Blended learning is the key to success says survey

first_img Previous Article Next Article Comments are closed. E-learning is more likely to be successful when used as a blended solutionwith other types of training, and if it is aligned to an organisation’sbusiness needs, says a survey from business school Ashridge, entitledE-learning: the Findings and the Future. Ashridge conducted the year-long research to find out how e-learning isbeing implemented, to assess the barriers to it, and to learn more about thefactors that ensure it is successful. Companies interviewed include BBC,Coca-Cola, Lloyds TSB, the Ministry of Defence, Volvo and Xerox. Findings werealso based on a quantitative survey of corporate subscribers to the AshridgeVirtual Learning Resource Centre. The results showed that there isn’t necessarily a correlation between amountof money spent, nor the capability of the technology, and the success of thelearning. The loneliness of e-learners was cited as a common problem and withinsome organisations, online learning’s negative image has led to it beingrebranded with the new term I-learning. Ashridge suggests that a slower pace of development for e-learning may be agood thing so that organisations can focus on creating an environment thatvalues learning. Further issues arising from the survey will be discussed inTraining next month when the survey will be analysed in more detail. www.ashridge.com Related posts:No related photos.
