a Biblical thought...
They read from the Book of the Law of God, making it clear and giving the meaning so that the people could understand what was being read. (Nehemiah 8:8)
a Book thought...
By the time of the 1901 census, The Salvation Army had 31100 members, which represented 0.82 per cent of the population. It was a notable achievement in just over twenty years. (p36)
a Dave thought...
I came across this website yesterday http://www.pokieact.org/ it is a site solely aimed at keeping kids out of licensed poker venues in Australia. It currently has a petition online so these venues will not lure families in by advertising free kids meals or cheap children's birthday parties. I encourage you to check it out and sign up before another generation is impacted by this evil industry.
There are many worthwhile Australian organizations dedicated to the complex issues involved in minimising or eliminating the harm caused by pokies. PokieAct.org is focused on one issue. And this can issue can be easily fixed by pokie pubs doing no more than painting a sign on their entrance doors keeping children out.
Tomorrow night - Thursday 23rd April 8pm EST we will be broadcasting live over the Internet from the South Australia Youth Councils Camp. Featuring Nath Casey & the worship team followed by Canadian Michael Collins (guest at ACC 2004 & Make Change 2008) www.salvationarmy.org.au/sstv
