Education For All: Now Is Not The Time To Back Out

Education For All: Now Is Not The Time To Back Out | Christianity in Education | Scoop.it
In what can only be interpreted as a major setback for children all over the world, a new policy paper released by the EFA Global Monitoring Report and UIS on 10th June confirms that our world faces a crisis like never before.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Educators and leaders need to be paying attention to how we can work with the underprivileged in other countries to help boost education.  We can all help in little ways,  through the use of technology and global citizenship, prayer and fundraising.

Listening to Young Atheists, Lessons for a Stronger Christianity - The Atlantic

Listening to Young Atheists, Lessons for a Stronger Christianity
The Atlantic
It has been my privilege to address college students all over the world, usually as one defending the Christian worldview.
Pippa Davies @PippaDavies 's insight:

Having read the book Almost Christian this article illustrates a rising trend in young adults.  How can the church address this debacle?  By listening to its youth, and trying to find ways to authenticate Jesus's beliefs in their lives.

Martin Pierce's curator insight, June 7, 2013 8:40 AM

This article barely mentions young earth creationism. I usually find that is about 50 percent of what atheists want to talk about.

 

This is like, "Let's try to reach atheists without worrying about whether we've embraced pseudoscience." Sorry, but for most atheists, that ain't gonna happen.

 

Christians have become more interested in market research than in questioning long-held assumptions about the Bible. Christianity is "broken" today, but the idea is that we just need to learn more about our "target audience." Yeah, right!

 

"No," they might reply, "we need to listen to people."

 

How about listening to God?

 

I refuted nearly every possible argument for young earth creationism in my book, Return to Genesis. See all my links at http://www.xeeme.com/MartinPierce
