I've been watching the Track and Field World Championships in Berlin and last night was pretty incredible! Usain Bolt broke his own world record in the 100m sprint with an amazing time of 9.58. (click HERE to read about it)

In high school I was a sprinter on the track team, running the 100m and 200m. My personal best time in the 100m was 11.14 - though it may not seem like much, it is miles away from 9.58. I truly can't believe that a human being can run that fast. The time keeps getting faster and faster.

I remember in high school watching Maurice Green break the world record with a time of 9.79 and saying, "no one is ever gonna beat that!" But someone obviously did...someone always does. Congratulations Usain Bolt!

Incredible Resource

I stumbled across today and it is an incredible resource for anyone who wants some in depth teaching on theology, ministry, and biblical studies. These are literally seminary classes that are made available to anyone who is interested. And best of all, it's absolutely FREE! It doesn't get much better than this.

My favorite thing about college were my Bible classes. I had some amazing professors that would challenge the typical gun-ho, "know-it-all" Christian college student. Their wisdom of the Bible and their hands-on experience in ministry provided me a well balanced biblical worldview. Oftentimes I have missed the classroom environment and learning in this way, which is why is such a gem. Well, actually it has the potential to be a gem. I guess I can't speak too soon as I haven't actually listened to any of the lectures yet, but it seems to be top notch.

I love learning about the past. My favorite areas of interest are Old Testament history and Church history. I'm excited because there are courses for both of those. I am going to start with the OT History course and see how it goes. It will make for great commuting material! Check out what they have to offer. Maybe you'll find something that really interests you.
