Ok, so yesterday at work (retail, not church) i was in the back storage area and a large heavy solid wood door that was just hanging out fell directly onto my head. Spent half of the day in the emergencey room. Apparently I have a mild concussion. So i'm out of commission for a few days. Dizziness, occassional nausea, sometimes a hard time visually focusing on things, and a really big headache. Yuck.

p.s. at the emergency room they had to a CT Scan on my brain. the good news is they found nothing.

haha. i'm so funny.

oh, the excitment of it all

Wow. Never in my life have I been accused of being a "materialist" or of valuing money over human life (I have, I admit, been accused of being either a marxist or a commie, but those ain't true accusations either). And yet a post about giving money to help free people from bonded servitude, forced prostitution, etc., and thost being issues that are so close to our Lord's heart, has led to those claims. Yes, sir, the internet is a wild and crazy thing.

So let's read this together and very carefully: The reason I have the "cost of war" counter is because it is good to know 1)how much your government is spending on anything, and 2)I find it interesting to see what that money (money that we have come up with from where?) could have funded instead of war. The point being that as of the writing of this post, that same money could have fully funded global anti-hunger campaigns for 9, count 'em, NINE years. Roughtly 29 THOUSAND children die EVERY DAY from hunger related issues. If you do the math, even just a quick estimate, you will find that over 9 years, that's quite a few lives that could be saved. The interesting thing is that we, as a nation, don't fund the campaings for 9 years. Because we don't have the money. But the counter over there to the right shows that we can come up with the money when we really want to. You do the math. That's all I'm saying.

I am ashamed of myself for even feeding into this discussion. Pointless, stupid, or rude comments will be deleted. Intelligent conversation will be applauded. Enjoy, kids.

And a store clerk not saying "Merry Christmas" is what we get all up in arms about? (Oh, the sad, sick irony...)

He went to Nazareth, where he had been brought up, and on the Sabbath day he went into the synagogue, as was his custom. And he stood up to read. The scroll of the prophet Isaiah was handed to him. Unrolling it, he found the place where it is written:

"The Spirit of the Lord is on me,
because he has anointed me to preach good news to the poor.
He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners
and recovery of sight for the blind,
to release the oppressed,
to proclaim the year of the Lord's favor."

Then he rolled up the scroll, gave it back to the attendant and sat down. The eyes of everyone in the synagogue were fastened on him, and he began by saying to them, "Today this scripture is fulfilled in your hearing.
~ Luke 4:16-21

Merry Christmas.

Christmas time is really busy. Especially if you work at a church. Or especially if you work a retail job.

And if you work both, well, forget about it...

...i may have time to write something interesting sometime, but just be patient...

Camp Hanover

Just added a link to Camp Hanover's 50th Anniversary Celebration. If you ever went to Camp Hanover, either as a camper, staff, on a weekend retreat, for an afternoon, etc (in short, if God has used Camp Hanover in your life in any way, shape, or form) make sure you give them your information so you can be a part of the celebration. Do it. Do it now.
