The “World Prayer Team,” and organization I'd never heard of before yesterday, is requesting that Christians pray at 3:33 P.M. today - That is, the third minute of the third sixth of an hour of the third hour of the third day of the third month of the third year of the third millenium. whew! I saw this in my church bulletin yesterday, and saw it again on blogs4God a few minutes ago. Read on for more information.
Kevin Hartwig of “sakamuyo 2.0” posted a message about the many issues of the Christian Church (as in organization). I was responding to the post (see the link, above), and my response grew into something less like a response and more like a blog entry, so here it is… my scattered thoughts on the Church and the problems within.
Note to self: Always check the front page of your blog to make sure it is working after making major changes to the code.
It seems that Tim's Journal was not accessible for about three or four hours tonight because of a bug I created in the code that caused the main page to attempt to load an article created at “0” (the UNIX epoch, that is, January 1, 1970 00:00:00 GMT). Unfortunately, it seems people did visit the site during that time, and sadly one person from blogs4God stopped by and seeing that nothing worked, gave the site a “6” rating (all things considered, “6” is more than fair for a site that doesn't work.). Oh well, hopefully whomever stopped by will come again now that things are working again.
Well, depending on if you count my blog starting when I posted the first substantial item or if you count the first 'testing' message, my blog either turned a year old on February 21 or will turn a year old March 4. I'll just go with March 4 so that I don't have to admit that I forgot to post something on the 21st… Did I just say that?
By the way, congratulations to Christopher, of What in Tarnation?!?, who achieved a blog entry-a-day for an entire month in February! That's not necessarily an easy task, but he seemed up to the challenge. Considering that he just won an award from me yesterday, he's on quite a roll.
Okay, in the last six weeks, I've seen probably four or five full length movies (that'd probably be three more than I saw in 2002) and I've added some new CD's to my collection. It's about time for a review or two. The movies will have to wait. I'd like to use this entry to discuss Divine Discontent, the new CD from Sixpence None the Richer.
I'm pleased to introduce a new entry to my blog roll. Le Renard Subtil's Citizen of the State is an interesting “pundit blog” that's part of the Gone Ape Web Network (as is What in Tarnation!?!). This blog has been up for about a month, and I decided it was high time for me to add it to my blog roll rather than using my blog roll to get to Christopher's blog roll to get to COTS (if you aren't confused by now, you should get some kind of award!).
How sad. I just had CNN Headline News on, and some student (and star sports player at some college) who disagrees with current government policy felt a good way to express this way to face away from the flag during the Pledge of Allegiance. How sad that someone would think that rejecting our flag, in essence, our country is the right way to disagree with certain policies. Apparently the student is at the college only has the opportunity to be the star there because the government is giving her a scholarship…
…yes, it is. Amazingly, it seems that everytime the snow melts this year, it snows again. It's at that point where everyone (around here in Missouri, at least) I think is ready for spring (hi Christopher!). I must admit though, barring unforeseen traffic issues tomorrow morning, it was quite beautiful in its icy whiteness, and I enjoyed it tonight. The motion sensor light came on earlier and the snow just glistened on the hill.
You know, there is something special about radio. I guess it works for TV too, but it just seems like you really “get to know” talk radio personalities. They almost become like friends — people who come “visit” you every day and keep you company on a commute, at work, or where ever else.
This isn't especially profound, but I wonder… at what cost do we attack Iraq? For the most part, it makes sense to attack that country — I mean they violate UN resolutions and are a menace to the world, but it seems to me Christians should seriously consider the large impact of this war.
