The Big Q

a Biblical thought...
The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom; all who follow his precepts have good understanding. To him belongs eternal praise. (Psalm 111:10)

a Book thought...
Fundamentalist organisations have only prospered where community educational achievements are well behind those of more successful communities. Fundamentalism will only continue
to prosper if it continues to deny access to learning except in a very narrow religious form, and this is increasingly difficult to do in a world with the Internet and global mass media. (p69)
a Dave thought...
Yesterday was a state wide curriculum day so what better way to educate my 7 year old son but to take him along to a West Coast Eagles training session. It was at the Junction oval and there were a couple of hundred faithful fans braving the cold weather. The picture above is of the full forward Quentin Lynch affectionately known as 'The Big Q' in our house. Noah thought the experience was great as he got to meet a few players and see Nic Natainui up close before his big debut tonight. I often wonder how meeting famous 'TV people' effects children, does it just make them idolise them more or does it help them realise that we are all people with so much in common just doing different things with our lives.

Just a thought.
