聖經金句

誰能使我們與基督的愛隔絕呢?難道是患難麼?是困苦麼?是逼迫麼?是飢餓麼?
是赤身露體麼?是危險麼?是刀劍麼?

羅馬書8:35

27 Arcadia High Students Named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists
9/15/2016




ARCADIA-- A remarkable 27 students from Arcadia High School have been named National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists. This prestigious recognition represents less than one percent of high school seniors in the United States. The semifinalists will have an opportunity to compete for roughly 7,500 National Merit Scholarships worth about $33 million.


“Going into the test, I wasn't sure what to expect, because the class of 2017 was the first to take the redesigned PSAT/NMSQT,” said Arcadia High Senior Simone Chu. “I'm really glad that the education I've received in AUSD prepared me for anything and everything that might come my way--and I'm ecstatic to have been named a National Merit Semifinalist! The long wait for results was nerve-wracking, but finding out that the work I put in had paid off made it all worthwhile.”  


Approximately 1.6 million juniors in more than 22,000 high schools entered the 2017 National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the 2015 Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test (PSAT/NMSQT), which served as an initial screening of applicants. Of the 16,000 semifinalists named, about 15,000 are expected to advance to the finalist level. Last year all 15 Arcadia High School semifinalists were named finalists. In 2014 all 31 Apaches who were named semifinalists were also named finalists. The same trend occurred in 2013 with the 22 Arcadia High students who were recognized.


“This is always such an exciting and distinguished honor for our students,” said Dr. David Vannasdall, Superintendent of Arcadia Unified School District. “It also speaks volumes to the quality of teachers we are fortunate to have throughout the entire district.”  


To become a finalist, the semifinalists and their high schools must submit a detailed scholarship application, in which they provide information about the semifinalist’s academic record, participation in school and community activities, demonstrated leadership abilities, employment, honors and awards received, and satisfy other academic criteria.  


More than half of the finalists will be awarded a National Merit Scholarship, earning the Merit Scholar distinction. In February the finalists will be notified, and scholarships will be awarded starting in April and concluding in July.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長及其深遠影響 (1) 
許多前來參加每年一次牧師研討會的牧師感到(2003年人數達到二十五萬之多),他們正經歷著一場由華理克牧師主導的改革運動,他們好像又回到了激動人心的馬丁路德改教運動的時代,不同的是他們可以與領導今天這場改革的領袖相遇和交談。

華理克牧師認為馬丁路德時代的改革是讓教會清楚教會所相信的是什麼,這也是我們今天還在傳講的資訊和教義,而今天的改革是讓教會清楚教會要做什麼


第二次宗教改革的呼聲 
新興教會的運動是教會的第二次宗教改革, 它將徹底改寫教會歷史, 並開創全新的教會時代.

朱易 : 馬鞍峰教會的增長模式和教會市場法的危機 (1) 
除了“目標導向”的增長公式,許多牧師認為華理克牧師還有增長的秘訣,但華理克牧師認為他的增長策略其實是十分簡單,歸納起來只有三條.

不少學者持懷疑的態度, 他們認為“目標導向”不過是將傳統的基督教原則作了不同的包裝。




《断背山》风头正健,价值观江河日下 (1) 
对基督徒而言,这部影片只不过是一个用艺术包装起来的同性恋合理的说教。但这一次,基督徒却无法用忽略它的存在的方式来反击它,他们必须寻找新的方法来坚守传统的战线。


朱易: 他的正面思維影響了全世界 (1) 
但是斯凱勒在教會界配受尊重,除了他在教堂的建造上獨樹一幟外,他的人品和神學上也頗為出色。他是少數幾個沒有醜聞的電視布道家之一,而讓他成為非主流教會和許多基督徒仿效的對象的原因是,他的講道著重正面信息,用正面思維看問題。
