Speaking at Beckman High School in Irvine, CA

Today I had the awesome opportunity to speak to the Power of Prayer club at Beckman High School.  I started by asking them to complete the same survey I use with university students.

Sharing Christ with Two Professors and Two Students

Universities often have presentations and panel discussions in the evenings that are not part of standard coursework. Sometimes students can get extra credit for attending these talks. I thought it might be interesting to approach professors in the philosophy and religion departments to see if I might participate in an upcoming event.

Planting Seeds on a Tuesday

Yesterday Mike Pizzolato of Pizzolato Video Services and I went onto the university campus to survey students in the hope that some students would allow us to video record our discussion.  We explained that we wanted to make a training video to teach others how to conduct the survey.

Only one student agreed to be video recorded.  Open-air conditions are sometimes difficult because of background noise and other factors. I hope to post the video here if the quality is good.

We surveyed five students and gave away four booklets.  Here are the answers given and the highlights of our discussions for three of those students.
