This is a collection of Bob Dye's timeless messages recorded between 1987 and 2004. Bob Dye was an active member and Deacon/Elder of Noelridge Park Church since he and his wife Coral moved to Cedar Rapids, Iowa, in 1970. Bob L. Dye was born on March 15, 1937 in Gowanda, a small town in rural western New York State. He was the third child of Ralph and Marian Scott Dye.

Recorded May 2, 2004 Bob recalls his early days growing up on a 300 acre dairy farm in W. NY state, where he learned about the soil, gardening, and farming. It was a transition time for farmers -from horses to tractors. Many changes from a corn planter they had that was 8’ wide to ones now that are 35’ wide and plant 25 acres an hour. Jesus used ma…
 
Recorded April 13, 2003 Our grandson, Henry, 5 at the time, often would say “Guess what, Grandpa!”, then answer his own question. Bob uses that phrase often in this message on John 15. We had gone to an Alison Krauss concert with backstage passes Lori had given us, and Bob enjoyed talking with her band member, Ron Block, who wrote songs that we rea…
 
Recorded May 6, 2001 Bob starts by asking how to spell relief from heartburn or pain. Many people are stressed out by their jobs, but as he said, “I’ve been in ministry for 41 years and never have thought about taking a sabbatical.” He gives steps to go from a beating heart to a burning heart, and he lists three places where we can get enlightenmen…
 
Recorded March 13, 1988 Pascal said “All men seek happiness.” It is found only in God Himself. As C. S. Lewis said, “God finds great pleasure in seeing us happy.” Our delight in the Lord will increase as we are fed by God’s Word, follow the leading of His Spirit, and spread God’s Good News. Ends with a thought provoking poem by Tim Hansel: “Pedal.”…
 
Date: 8/22/04 A humorous start as Bob shares how he grew up with the Lone Ranger and how he rode his horse on his farm trying to bring that character into his life. Today we live in a world of fantasy--unrestrained imagination. We forget reality and the laws of nature. When Jesus walked on water to where the disciples were struggling in a storm, we…
 
Date: 7/13/03 Matthew 5: "You are the light of the world--let your light shine so they will praise your Father in heaven." Jesus left a powerful impact on His culture. He addressed the total needs of people: mental, social, spiritual, and physical. People should be able to see kingdom living in our life. Bob's life verse was Colossians 3:17. It gui…
 
Date: 2/9/03 Do we have love figured out? I John 4:16-17: God is love. Jesus knew how to live life perfectly. He is the best model to follow. Bob gives 3 things to avoid, also 3 conditions to desire. One of the most important actions we do as kingdom members is to encourage one another to let God's love flow through us to others. Bob's favorite son…
 
Date: 1/22/03 Bob shares the challenge of the harvest on a farm (knowing when the harvest is ready) and how it applies to the importance of reaching out to our harvest--lost people. We need to come alongside people and introduce them to Jesus. What does it take to be a harvester? Illustration of Timothy (Philippians 2:19-22) and how he took a genui…
 
Date: 12/8/02 Just as we sing lullabies to our children to put them to sleep, Bob feels that Christians are being rocked to sleep concerning what Christmas is all about. Merchants open their doors early, stay open late. Materialism seems to take the place of the real meaning of the season. The story of Zacchaeus in Luke 19 shares the reason why Jes…
 
Date: 8/18/02 In what are you confident? Confidence is a firm belief, trust, reliance, certainty, and assurance. Jesus said, "Come and follow Me." Following Jesus is an either/or commitment--not both/and. Illustration from a Colorado Caravan comparing a drought to a tree planted by the water. Also, ways you can see or experience the Royal Gorge. Do…
 
Date: 7/7/02 Comparing the renovation of a house to the renovation of our heart, Bob starts by sharing steps that must be made to turn a "handyman special" into your dream home. We need three things: a vision, intention, and means--or "VIM." A house has no power to renovate itself...the same is true of our heart. Jesus modeled for us life as life w…
 
Date: 8/12/01 YFC Caravans started in 1972. This year Bob was the speaker and over 200 students came. He spoke on Jesus the Creator, the Healer, the Rescuer, Lord, and Friend. The commitment to follow someone is not frivolous. You cannot do it half-heartedly. Following Jesus is an adventure. Bob gives a great illustration of God's protection while …
 
Date: 10/15/2000 A humorous illustration of the difference between a 7th grade track meet and the athletes winning Olympic gold...also a beginning violin player and a concert violinist. Those who make great accomplishments all started as beginners, then worked hard and made a commitment to excel. Are we willing to learn from Jesus in His school of …
 
Date: 8/24/97 People know about certain things. Jesus knew about life. He knew where He came from and where He was going, that the Father had given Him authority over all things, and when His time had come. He made it possible for us to know Him and to go with Him when we die. Now that we know these things, we should experience life as God meant it…
 
Date: 5/15/88 Scripture: II Corinthians 3 What qualifies us to minister? First, our availability. It is not dependent on past behavior. The past is forgiven, and the new has come. Is God's "to do" list for us getting done? He gives us faith and love--it needs to show itself in our everyday relationships. When God is at work in us, it will be seen.…
 
Creativity Support Tools is a research topic with high risk but potentially very high payoff. The goal is to develop improved software and user interfaces that empower diverse users in the sciences and arts to be more productive, and more innovative. Potential users include a combination of software and other engineers, diverse scientists, product …
 
At its best, the web is a model of efficiency, with a single document playing to multiple contexts. Adaptive design provides the basis for this flexibility, with documents that move gracefully between small and large screen and printed page, with multiple stops in between. For the web designer, designs that adapt are far more difficult to accomplis…
 
This session will present the methods used by The Hadley School for the Blind to provide usable e-learning and its alternatives to students who are blind or visually impaired. The presentation will describe how a student navigates through the courseware and how an instructors and staff members support their learning. Lastly, Hadley will share the r…
 
While its intuitive appeal remains strong, the adoption of universal design is often thwarted by challenges common to postsecondary classrooms. This presentation will engage participants in building awareness of universal design (UD) and the promise and challenges of implementation through interactive role playing by the presenters. Principles of u…
 
There is a growing awareness that new kinds of science are needed to cope with many contemporary problems. The idea of Science 2.0 shifts attention from the natural to the made world, where richly interdisciplinary problems are resistant to reductionist solutions. Science 2.0 includes topics such as environmental preservation, energy sustainability…
