Enhancing On-going Ministry Through Equipping, Encouraging, and Interceding

Low Tech and High Tech

This coming fall, I will be teaching again at Southwestern Baptist Seminary. I will teach the course, “Prayer and Global Ministry” that has not been taught at Southwestern during the sixteen years of my retirement. This time it will be an online course through technology with which I am unfamiliar. In four days last week, I filmed 23 segments, sixteen of which were in a Studio, teaching into a camera, hoping there were students on the other end and that they did not choose to go to the Grocery Store while I was teaching.  Now I’m trying to learn how to use the class internet program – Canvas.  High tech seminary students will register for the course and many others will sign up to audit the class. Hopefully, they will think that I know what I am doing. Fortunately, I have a Teaching Assistant assigned to me and he knows what I am doing. All of this reminds me of the question of Ecclesiastes, “Why were the former days better than these?” (Ecclesiastes 7:10) and the song of Moses, “Remember the days of old” (Deut. 32:7).  I am a low tech professor in a high tech world.
