Hollywood Nativity…

July 29, 2006

Hello all! Well we’re back from the Bible Week and a fantastic time was had by all. I’ll post about it later once everything is unpacked!

But just a quick blog about a film that caught my eye – a new film coming to cinemas this December called ‘The Nativity Story’ – should be interesting to see what Hollywood does with the story of the birth of Jesus Christ! The trailer doesn’t give much away but I’m already excited about it and hope to see an accurate account to inform, encourage and challenge the lives of all people!

Have a look and check back soonI’ll post my thoughts from the Bible Week in a short while


Bible Week 2006!!!!

July 20, 2006

All my bags are packed, I’m ready to go……

Well nearly. Bible week is hereand so that means no blogging until August. The theme for this years gathering is ‘seeing above and beyond’ – I’m going to go higher than ever before and have an encounter with the most high God. My expectations are high!

See you all soon and please be in prayer for the week – we long for His presence– it’s the distinction that separates us out as the people of God…

Jaded Christians?

July 19, 2006

There should be no such thing! I was admiring a plant in our house last night (yes…you heard me correctly but this is in no way a vow to become a gardener!). It’s just a simple plant that sits on the bathroom window sill to bring colour and freshness all who visit our smallest room

Happy Monday everyone! Came into work this morning to hear the news that the power at work had blown over the weekend shorting out our central server, frying the mother board in the process – joy! Not what you need to hear walking through the door

On this day in history…

July 11, 2006

Have a look at this article from the BBC archives from today, July 11th, in 1977. A victory for the campaigner Mary Whitehouse against a blasphemous poem published in the ‘Gay Times’ magazine.

Would this ever happen in today’s society?Sadly, I don’t think so. Friends, take a look at the quote from Mary Whitehouse and let us always be on the lookout to take a stand against unrighteousness.

World Mug

July 11, 2006

The dust is settling in Germany now that the Italians have taken their party back to their adoring fans – the World Cup is over for another 4 years! I know it has been criticised for not living up to expectations but personally it has been one of my favourite world cups, a close second to the memory that was Italia 90! But after watching many matches throughout the competition, there are still things about football that I just don’t understand

Easy PC…

July 7, 2006

Taking my lead from Christopher Hamer-Hodges (link down on the right to his great blog!) I’m letting you know about about a great download – Google Desktop.  It will save you time finding things and also enable your desktop to keep tracks of the information you’re always looking for – key documents, what’s the weather doing, favourite websites etc.

The best thing of all is that Google Desktop is based on two things:

(1) A handy sidebar that isn’t too clumsy and easy to customize

(2) It’s taken on the great look and easy-to-use factor of ‘Widgets’ from Apple Macs like the one on the left (obviously you can set it to point to where you live….not just New York!)
