This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit my employer
Novell which is an amazing company, and also
Dell who in days of yore provided me with a
free laptop for Gnome development / conferences.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here.
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
- Sunday, woken by Julia phoning again - woke most of
the Estonian mob too it seems - sorry guys, made a mad dash for
the shower. Hit 'Finagle a Bagel' at Part Street, J wearing a
pretty skirt today and looking lovely as usual.
excellent sermon on 'Sodom and Gommorah',
Genesis 19 always extremely in depth, addressing and answering modern, liberal
re-interpretations of the passage.
Ezekiel 16:48-50, addressed, yes indeed the sins of Sodom were not limited to
the desire for mob homosexual rape but were all manner of evil, the outcry from
which had been heard by God.
- Conclusions - the sins of Sodom were many, Lot clearly correctly
understood the men's intention [ not just to get to know the visitors ] hence
his offer of his daughters [ what kind of protection was under his roof ! ],
the chapter finishes with his daughters reciprocating his unlovely offer.
- Brief walk in Boston Common, extremly windy and perishing cold.
Lunch at a nasty food court place.
- Bought some coffee, milk and chocolate, back to the barracks.
- Had a very pleasant time together - Steve Chalke's
excellent advice from his "lessons in love" childrens videos - his
three maxims - no clothes off, no lights off, no lying down, along
with the caution against touching bits you don't have. Found them
very helpful in the self control stakes - NB. guidance is not a
set of laws to become enslaved to, an abomination to God's grace.
God rejoices more over a sinner who repents more than 99 who don't
- To church for the evening service, more boppy, great
sermon on trying to root evil out of society ourselves - the
parable of the weeds. Essentialy, while striving for justice
and truth, in this life we cannot hope to achieve it in society.
In fact, politicizing the church turns the message into an
ideology instead of a proclamation of a living savior and weakens
the church. Persecution of non-believers, the ungodly etc. just
weakens the church.
- To Davis, sat in an Irish pub near Teale Sq. drank
Guinness and enjoyed each others company, watched The Truman Show
without any sound. Remembered recording an interesting
CICCU talk by James
Lawrence - "Christians make better lovers" a parting thought of
which was that love was more about tenderness than technique,
relaxed a bit.
- To Rachel's - she was in, had a brief go on her ergo
I miss rowing, food, prayer, taxi home.
In case it's not painfully obvious: the reflections reflected here are my
own; mine, all mine ! and don't reflect the views of Novell, The
Lithuanian Gov't or Arnold Schwarzenegger. It's also important to
realise that I'm not in on the Swedish Conspiracy.
Occasionally people ask for formal photos for conferences,
