Willie Robertson of Duck Dynasty Chapel Talk – Nov 28, 2012

Here is a link to Willie Robertson, of Duck Dynasty, Chapel Talk at Harding from today.

It would be tempting to say this is really good just because he is famous. But really, this is really good because there is spiritual substance to it and several life lessons worth hearing. After watching this, it will be hard to see this guy as the seemingly immature caricature of himself on TV. This guy is simple-deep. He gets up at 13:45.


Bruce McLarty Talks About His Recent Appointment as the Next President of Harding University

Thanks to Bobby Ross and the Christian Chronicle for this interview with Bruce McLarty. It is important that we let Dr. McLarty lay out his vision without assuming we know his conclusions before they are made and/or communicated. From the contact I have had with Dr. McLarty in the past I was always struck by how grace-filled he seemed to be and yet still had convictions about his core beliefs. You hear that balance in this interview and I think that is one of the necessary tensions (if you want to call it that) that has to be maintained in order to move ahead in healthy and Christ-like ways.

Q&A: Harding University’s next president on faith, Christian higher education and Churches of Christ

Bruce McLarty is Harding’s New President

I just saw mention of Bruce McLarty being Harding’s new president. Thanks to Dr. Burks for the two decades of dedicated service. He will be a tough act to follow. Dr. McLarty will do an excellent job.

Prescription for Sexual Sanity

This has to be one of the best sermons done on having a healthy view of sex and sexuality. I believe this is from the 2001 Harding Lectures and it is by Don McLaughlin from the North Atlanta Church of Christ. I can’t remember if it was Philip or Daniel who brought this tape to my attention. Thanks to Don for permission to upload this.

Prescription for Sexual Sanity

Slain Tampa Police Officer Attended Both Harding and Faulkner

Tampa police officer David Curtis was killed in the line of duty last Tuesday at 2am. His killer is still at large. David leaves behind a wife and four young children. He also attended both Harding University and Faulkner and played football for a year while at Harding (see this article). Prayers go out to his family at such a difficult time. Another officer, Jeffrey Kocab, was also murdered in the same incident and he leaves behind a wife 9 months pregnant. What an awful tragedy.
