71 years later

a Biblical thought...
Behind and underneath all this there is a holy, God-planted, God-tended root. If the primary root of the tree is holy, there's bound to be some holy fruit. Some of the tree's branches were pruned and you wild olive shoots were grafted in. Yet the fact that you are now fed by that rich and holy root gives you no cause to crow over the pruned branches. Remember, you aren't feeding the root; the root is feeding you. (Romans 11:16-18)

a Book thought...
What we have at the moment isn't, as the old liturgies used to say, 'the sure and certain hope of the resurrection of the dead', but the vague and fuzzy optimism that somehow things may work out in the end. (p35 Wright)

a Dave thought...
The poster above was the one I had on my blog post a couple of weeks ago that caused so much controversy. The upper picture is an image that was found in a 1937 War Cry. It is amazing the similarities even though the young designer had never seen the original artwork before. I'm sure many believe the times have changed and this kind of imagery is not appropriate today, but as we are still an army involved in warfare maybe this is who we are supposed to be, but have just lost our way somewhat.

Just a thought.

Greetings Earthlings,

Nathan Rowe here.....
I can sense a busy blog coming so...time for a quick ad break...

I have a six year old ginger cat that is looking for a home. He has a great personality and likes to go to church. He has been known to bite when his love tank gets full. But don't let that stop you from experiencing his almost fantastical personality.

If you are intrested please feel free to contact me through the Southern Territory Dispo.

God Bless You All : )

Nathan,

Do you do a cat ad for every blog about militant imagery? Cause that's kinda weird.
