Web Info and
Active Participation Sites for Experiencing God
In late 1995 or early 1996, Thomas Kennedy of
Holland , Michigan, started an e-mail "list-serve" [see the story of it] as a supplement to
the 13-week workbook study of Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God, Henry T.
Blackaby and Claude V. King, 1990, The Sunday School Board of the Southern Baptist
Convention. At its peak, I heard that this list-serve effort had over 1000 subscribers from
many countries around the world. Due to illness, Kennedy discontinued the
EG INFORMATION FILES WEB
Southwest Chinese Baptist Church (SWCBC) in
Stafford, Texas currently continues to maintain course information and links to Dr.
Blackaby's ministry on their church web site at [check it out]. For about a year (1998-99?), the SWCBC site linked to a
"Baptist Board" on-line forum which now no longer exists.
A NEW EG FORUM
In August 2000, Jackson Leung of SWCBC contacted
the web site, Baptist Board, and suggested institution of an EG forum. This was started at
that site, and I was honored to have been asked to be the EG forum monitor. But it was
discontinued in early 2001...there are many interesting forums there, however. When you go to
the home page, "click" on Enter BaptistBoard.com. Then scroll down the list of forums and see
what interests you. You can "lurk" and read without registering; but, you can easily register
and post your own comments to any discussion "thread". [check it out].

8/2001: Dr. Blackaby has "retired" from the Southern Baptist Convention office and is now
working full time with Henry Blackaby Ministries. His ministry is a faith-supported ministry
with finances coming from individual contributions and purchases of his products available.
Knowing that Dr. Blackaby strives daily to do the will of God as directed by God, if you
could see fit to purchase your Experiencing God materials directly from Dr. Blackaby, that
would help his ministry and be greatly appreciated. You can link to this information to
order or contact his ministry at [here].

MY EG E-MAIL LIST
In the absence of any other EG list serve on the
web and in connection with the UCT ("University of Christian Training") schedule of 8/00 at
Northside Baptist Church, I [Ervin Shaw] initiated a new EG e-mail list
serve. The semester kicked off Sunday evening 13 August 2000. I participated in Kennedy's list
in the winter of 1996 and found it to be an illuminating experience and one containing
possibilities for further witnessing and discipleship...especially if people registered with
correct e-mail address visible in a signature. We only had 4-5 participants on that new EG list
serve that Fall of 2000. I subsequently read part of V. Raymond Edman's book, They Found the
Secret , and concluded that my unfruitful EG internet effort had not had any anointing by
the Holy Spirit.
As of 2 Sept. 2001, my church had
not scheduled EG in its UCT line-up. In that the list serve had attracted so few members and
the Baptist Board EG Forum (above) was unexpectedly discontinued, I decided that there was no
apparent "call" for EG on-line at this point in time. In association with Northside's
Wednesday night activities, Rev. Diane O'Connell...an outstanding teacher and one claiming to
have been greatly impacted by EG and her subsequent teaching of the course many times...will
teach EG. Start date is 4 September 2002 in the CFC room 210 6:30-7:30 pm. I personally
attest that Diane teaches from a Jesus-filled heart and from a life rescued by Jesus
Sadly, as of March 2003, Rev. O'Connell & my
wife and myself are no longer members at Northside.
My "Home Page" can direct you to its "site
index" or intra-site search engine for more on Christian topics on my site. Of special
interest is the "testimonies" collection [index].
