July 11

a Biblical thought...
At first I didn't think of it as a gift, and begged God to remove it. Three times I did that, and then he told me, My grace is enough; it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness. (2 Cor 12:8)

a Book thought... from One Church Four Generations by Gary L. McIntosh
I have noticed that most churches target one generation exclusively, but in most of our churches all generations are present, and we must build a ministry that includes them all. (p14)
a Dave thought... from an IT blog
Does this morning feel like Christmas morning to anybody else? Did anyone else have trouble falling asleep last night waiting for Jobs to announce the second coming of the Jesus phone?
The ever-slimming Apple CEO Steve announced that the new iPhone will be available in a bunch of countries including Australia on July 11.
iPhone combines three products a revolutionary mobile phone, a widescreen iPod with touch controls, and a breakthrough Internet communications device with desktop-class email, web browsing, maps, and searching into one small and lightweight handheld device.
The biggest surprise, and the most welcomed for some, is Apple's new iPhone pricing. In fact, the only part of this announcement which rings of "Jesus phone version 2" is the loaves-and-fishes price point of US$199 for the 8GB model, and US$299 for the 16GB heavyweight which also comes in white.

Yes the iPhone comes on July 11 and has there ever been a more wanted device that Australian young people are so looking forward to owning? They are counting down the days and pre-ordering so they don’t have to wait any longer to get their hands on one. It is hard to see how this amazing new gadget will ever be outsold again, but then again didn’t we say that about the Commodore 64 in 1982?

Just a thought.
