a Biblical thought...
Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. Perseverance must finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. If any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to him. (James 1:2-5)

a Book thought...
God's Word is not a mystery. God always provides a way for people to understand what he has said. (p101)
a Dave thought...
First of all it is great to be back online. As we have been in the process of moving quarters over the last 48 hours I have been unable to blog. As Kylie has observed though the world continues to function quite okay without my daily post:)

Last night on my way back to Geelong I was listening to John Cleary on 774 ABC where I heard him interview South African Bishop Geoff Davies. He recently addressed the World Parliament of Religions held in Melbourne this month regarding a Christian response to environmental sustainability. I was intrigued as he shared with John last night about the idea of an eco-congregation. He suggested that all congregations should be responsible for improving their carbon footprint and that as churches surely we should be doing our part in making the world a better place to live.

Internationally, the eco-congregation concept is an ecumenical environmental project providing free resources and support to churches. Their resources are available directly on the World Wide Web at

Just a thought.
