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, up lateish: 10.00. Off to park street - a
very very good sermon from Gordon. Lots of interesting stuff,
Genesis 24, lots about Marriage - arranged - all marriages
are arranged by God - who is extremely interested in arranging
them, from Adam and Eve onwards. Though scripture doesn't teach
arranged marriage, it doesn't condemn it the passage gives
interesting hints. Advanced provision for the women to say no
(5), and her having to consent (58). That God cares about people
enough to answer prayer - even those of the (nameless) servant,
his boldness and practicality. Particularly interesting two
pre-requisites for marriage are consent and a common faith.
Interestingly Moses married a Cushite (a black person), and
when people moaned about it God let them know what for in
- Lunch in the park, lay around in the shade for ages
and yet somehow got very sun-burned. A lovely relaxing afternoon.
- Back to the office to see if Iain was around, dragged
him off to Church. Good music in the evening, but sermon a dud.
- Got food and sat in the park, in the dark eating it -
still very warm.
- Back t'barracks. Prayed, bibled and bed.
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,
