For in him we live (zao {dzah'-o}, and move, and have our being; Acts 17:28

Fields White To Harvest

 

 

Lord, I thought I knew you,

   but know the winds have changed.

Tossed away, will you find me?

   Can still , my heart be sustained?

Just me and you when things were new,

then the season's storms blew by.

   Did I forget to worship you?

 

Will you come, Lord Jesus to gather us- your sheep.

   For the days grow long and still,

If we watch and wait, will you hear us yet-

   Can we stand strong to do you will?

 

 The wheat has been blowing in that field,

   While the laborers are so few.

What then, now are we waiting for?

   Can hardened hearts become like new?

 

 Safely can we stay behind you,

   as we march with your trumpet sound?

Or- have we stayed and hid so long now,

   That our roots dry underground?

 

 I pray Lord that you will find me.

   I pray not to be ashamed.

I seek you when it's early Lord.

   I pray not to fall away.

 

So come Lord Jesus come quickly-

   The terrible day is at hand.

I pray we'll all be steadfast.

   So you may strengthen our spirits ,

as we stand.

Who Will Defend The Children Against CCSS or Nationalizing Education

Alert:   Nationalizing Education--Vote Set Nov 18th--As one mother has said, "our kids are not for sale".  
Last year, the National Governors Association and the Council of Chief State School Officers agreed to sponsor the Common Core State Standards Initiative with help from Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation and the United States Department of Education (USDE).  Goal were to develop common mathematics and English, Language, Arts (ELA) standards that states could supposedly voluntarily adopt.  USDE then included adoption of the standards as part of the application for states to qualify for “Race to the Top” education grants.
  • Most states agreed to it even before the standards were published in June.
Here are warnings from Professor Jim Milgram and Professor Sandra who were in the national validation committee forming the standards.  
  • In spite of what is being said by others these two were the experts in Math and ELA and here is what they say:
"How can the State Boards of Education make decisions when they haven't even read the standards? Many state's Board Member had never been initiated into what was in these documents.  What were the policy issues coming out of these documents and whether these analyses were truly were in a sense legitimate academic analysis...These are very serious issues about what self- government means at the state and local government level."--Sandra Stotsky,  professor in the Department of Education Reform at the University of Arkansas, and holds the 21st Century Chair in Teacher Quality.
"...the requirement to automaticity on their own self- invented algorithms, was one of the political issues that came in at the last moment and it's  absolutely crazy.  And then there was an entire list of similar ones, that equally made no sense whatsoever in terms of the long term development of children's mathematical capacity." --  Dr. R. James Milgram, professor of Mathematics at Stanford University, member of NASA advisory council.
  • Bottom line is that CCSS is going to open the door wide to more indoctrination as the English is now going to be more about information and with Kevin Jennings in the USDE that is very troubling.   More dumbing down as in the math, children will learn their own way which could be wrong, and then- maybe a couple of years later the right way.  What input parents had by going to their school boards will no longer be there.  You have 'til Nov 18th to contact Gov Riley (334) 242-7100 and State Board Chairman Dr. Morton (334) 242-9700 and tell them whether or not you want the Common Core States Standards.
The first regional meeting was in Mobile and only two parents went (most don't know).

 

 

Obama's Sec. of  Ed Arne Duncan's speech at  2009 Governors Education Symposium  June 14, 2009 Cary, North Carolina

 

He states the following:

 

 Perfect Storm for Reform

 

• The Recovery Act -- $100B

 

 "But if all we do is save jobs, we will miss this opportunity – which is why we are also using this recovery money to drive reform"

 

"There has never been this much money on the table and there may never be again"

 

"Once new standards are set and adopted you need to create new tests that measure whether students are meeting those standards. Tonight -- I am announcing that the Obama administration will help pay for the costs of developing those tests."*

 

"Today, perhaps for the first time, we have enough money to really make a difference."

 

Money indeed-- from the American people to implement the plan.

 

Mr. Lou Gerstner's suggestions (President of Achieve which was commissioned to write standards):

 

Wall Street Journal article Nov 23, 2008-- See Mr. Lou Gerstner suggestion to the president elect Obama:

 

..."I’m going to suggest is that he convene the 50 governors, and the first thing they do is they abolish the 16,000 school districts we have in the United States. Sixteen thousand school districts are what we’re trying to cram this reform through...

 

These organizations stand in the way of what we want to do.

 

Now, the governors could decide, we’ll keep them as advisory, we can keep them as community support, but they will not be involved in the fundamental direction of public education in America. Second, this group of governors will then select 50 school districts, plus I’d say 20 major cities, so we got 70 school districts. Seventy instead of 16,000.

 

They will within one year develop a national set of standards for math, science, reading and social studies. Twelve months after that they will develop a national testing regime, so that there’ll be one day in America where every third, sixth, ninth and twelfth grader will take a national test against a national curriculum."

 

And as Chairman of Achieve--his plans are being carried out thanks to Bill Gates money and the administration of O'bama.

 

 America has monied and powerful people that think they know best for your children and you are not a part of the equation (just in the payment).   I hope you will no longer be ignorant to this precious foundation of the future of America--but be wary and share your thoughts with your governors (governors can be the key--hear interview).

CRW--Basic Action Steps-- First Issue is the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child

Some of things in the UN CRC that is very shocking:

  • Children can choose their own religion while parents would only have the authority to give their children advice about religion.
  • It would give the government the ability to override every decision made by every parent if a government worker disagreed with the parent’s decision.
  • A child’s “right to be heard” would allow him (or her) to seek governmental review of every decision the child disagreed.
  • Christian schools that refuse to teach “alternative worldviews” and teach that Christianity is the only true religion goes against aritcle 29 of the treaty.
  • Allowing parents to opt their children out of sex education has been held to be out of compliance with the CRC.
  •  

     Hosea 4:6  "My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge".

     

    Here's another troubling issue--Common Core States Standards (CCSS).  The biggest transformation in public education done without knowledge or participation of the public.  Find out from interviews on foremost experts in Education with hands on knowledge of problems with the CCSS and its future. See link.

     

     God used the women to spread that most important news in the resurrection and we can be useful again to spread important news needed today.  Please help--here are steps Christian Resolute Women can do.

      1.  Educate yourself on the issue--click on this link  and this link.

     2.  Call your Congress (click for numbers here) asking them to sign on as co-sponsor of Senate Resolution 519 to oppose the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child (CRC)--see who needs to sign on in your state by clicking here.

     What you can do in church:

    3.  Make copy of Liberty Council's list of what church and pastors can and cannot do (click here for link)

    4.  Pray before speaking with leadership (see * below).

    5.  Our main resource which we would like to use is the church bulletin--ask to be able to insert leaflet on issues (which is legally permissible for churches).  If you don't have church bulletins maybe a table in the foyer can be set up with leaflets or flyers that have info (with someone there giving them out and hopefully the Pastor can announce it too).  Other ways to distribute could be: Sunday School Classes, women's group, small group meetings and put in your church prayer list if possible.  Don't forget to put it online if you have an online prayer request site and e-mail link to this article.

    6.  We suggest two people present this idea to the pastor.  Take the flyer you printed from Liberty Council (on what churches can and cannot do legally) along with a sample flyer from Parentalrights.org that you can use as an insert in your church bulletin.

     7. Try and join in a bi-weekly online prayer meeting for CRW on Sunday nights at 8-9PM.  Check here for future info on how and when this will be done.  E-mail us at e-mail@cityonahill.tv if you wish to join in this endeavor.

    8.  Please speak on this issue to other groups as this needs to be found out rather quickly to make a difference.  It has been stated the Obama administration wants this done this year-click here to article link. 

    9.  Please e-mail or call all your friends and relatives across this country and ask them to see if they can do the above.  SR 519 is a resolution that we need senators to sign on to now and ultimately we need an amendment--click here for info on it.

    10.  If you have facebook, please join Christian Resolute Women.  Thank you in advance for your help. 

     *Watch Dr. Charles Stanley's video as he warns us "there is a tide that has reached our shores that will ultimately destroy our way of life, it is already in the process.  Dr Stanley has a charge for us--"Challenge you to join in praying for this nation specifically, however God leads you to do it-- every single day for 140 days 20 weeks. Praying for God to change the direction of this tide, open the eyes of the people of this nation, open the eyes of the church to recognize our responsibility, open our own eyes to realize how God has answered our prayer many times in the past. How God has answered prayers corporately and for our whole nation and its very beginning and still is answering prayer today for people who genuinely believe that Almighty God still hears and answers prayer. I am asking you to join me....let's see what God will do for America."
