Risk aversion

Our natural tendancy to risk aversion fascinates me this article Guardian Unlimited | The Guardian | Girl, 13, dies after being hit on head by remote-controlled model plane immediately makes me question my long held desire to buy such a ultimate boys toy and yet I am quite happy to drive on the roads knowing full well that according to one magazine if I start driving for work I will be as likely to be killed as a quary worker…. Read more

Can we live without the Bible?

Martin Roth asks Can we live without the Bible? and tells of how a college lecturer had told him If you wanted to catch up with the people in your church you didn’t need to do a diploma.

Michael Jordan's last day

I came accross this quote on Joshua Claybourn’s Home Page “I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career.

And that is why I succeed.” This made me think of the failures I’ve made and how sometimes in the past the job I wanted slipped through my grasp. Suddenly things are… Read more

Jonathan Edwards Resolutions

The Resolutions of Jonathan Edwards As I was reading the Jonathan Edwards Resolutions, I discovered something else which is intreging for a new blogger. “that I will do whatsoever I think to be most to God’ s glory, and my own good, profit and pleasure” and the second is “to be continually endeavoring to find out some new contrivance and invention to promote the aforementioned things.” Well it seems to me that Jonathan Edwards would have loved blogs as they… Read more

Keeping up to date

Of course these days there is so much information out there it is hard to process it all and know what you really want to read. I think that Bloglet and RSS feeds may prove useful in driving relevant content into your inbox. It still all sounds a bit complicated to me, but if you want to drive my possibly irrelevant content into your inbox then hopefully the above form should work (which is more than the yahoogroups one does… Read more

Got Change for a Blog?

Got Change for a Blog? Found this on a blog this morning “Christians, Christians… not to worry… not to worry… the war is going well — we’re doing an excellent job! The infidels are on the run. Just keep doing what you’re doing, the way you’re doing it.” “Those loud noises you’re hearing in our U.S. cities are not explosions of crime, injustice, filled jails, aborted children, racism, hatred, divorce, fatherlessness, declining education, addictions of all kinds, adultery, joblessness, egotism,… Read more
