Well, having been properly chastised by my house buddy of, what, thirteen years, I have updated “Who is Laura?”

Well. I got my Hebrew paper back today. Let me just say that I am very happy! Not only about the grade, but that I really did get it. It's nice to get a verification of the learning.

On another note, my new Gateway laptop arrived the other day. Tonight I attempt the data transfer. Here's hoping for the best.

There’s this leadership paradigm—I do, you watch; I do, you help; you do I help; you do, I watch. It came up the other day in the middle of a passionate discussion of ministry philosophy (which discussion is not part of this discussion, but anyway). I work with the college group at TFB. My philosophy is that the youth group should get the students—at least the leader-types—to the point of “I do, you help” phase so that when they move on to college they are ready for the “you do, I help” phase. The problem seems to be that the students either have only reached the “I do, you watch” phase or they are quite content to remain in the “I do, you help” phase. It’s a dilemma (or is that multi-lemma?). What to do?
Hey, I added a "Who is Laura?" thingy, in case you're interested...
