He took him outside and said, "Look up at the heavens and count the stars—if indeed you can count them." Then he said to him, "So shall your offspring be." Abram believed the LORD, and he credited it to him as righteousness. (Genesis 15:5-6)

Systems thinking helps you understand that a change in one aspect of the congregation ripples through the rest of the body. It is not possible to make one isolated adjustment and maintain the status quo everywhere else. (p77) a Dave thought...
New Zealander is auctioning off a piece of toasted pita bread which looks like Jesus Christ.
The TradeMe online auction shows a photo of the pita bread, which broke into pieces after being put in the oven. One piece, the seller says, resembled the face of Jesus.
"I was tempted to eat it but for some reason I didn't," the seller says in their auction listing.
"I guess what you all want to know is whether it's a coincidence or real apparition. I'm not really sure."
The pita bread piece which measures about 4cm x 3.5cm has no reserve price. The auction ends January 8.
The leading bid is now standing at $NZ215 and if you get time to read some of the comments and questions they are just hilarious. I don't think I will make a bid but it is amazing how anything to do with Jesus still manages to make the news. He surely is an amazing man who the world still is fascinated by.
Just a thought.
