I have a facebook.
I started it about a year ago, but wasn't sure what a facebook was so I didn't use my name. I used my favorite alias name...Henry Baxter Williams.
I have 5 friends. They are people who found out I have a facebook and asked me to be their friend.
I am too afraid to ask anyone to be my friend because I am afraid they will say "No." Of course, anyone I would ask would probably say no anyway since they have no idea who Henry Baxter Williams is in the first place.
So, if you have a facebook and want to be my friend, just go to that name and if I know you, I will be your friend.
Of course, the dilemma is that I really don't know what to do with a facebook. I took the Back to the Future test and scored 80%. I poked Jeremy once, but that gets a little old.
In conclusion, if you have a facebook, this song is for you and if you want to be my friend, just ask.

I have a facebook.

Paul was Terry's roommate in college. I met them at our wedding in 1977 when they had just arrived from Japan for a few months in the states. Paul was raised in Japan as the son of missionaries. He has pastored a church there for many years. They are wonderful people.
I have added Paul's blog link. His cancer has returned and he has gone to Tennessee, near his parents for treatment. He and Reiko have been on our hearts and minds a lot lately. So, if you are reading this, please pray for Paul and Reiko.
You can read the testimony of how God healed him over 20 years ago. You can also get updates on his health on the blog's main page so that you will know how to pray.
Next point. I am removing Pam's Myspace from my link. Again, I like "The Office" (most of the time), but now that she is divorcing her husband, I don't really want to link her anymore. So, adios Pam (but I do think the cupcake courier is a nifty device).
Finally, I was sorry to see that through some odd mishap all of Slice of Laodicea had been lost. I didn't always agree with Ingrid, but I found her ideas thought provoking and agreed most of the time. She has a personal blog that I have been reading instead of Slice. There, she offers a link to Team Pyro. I am adding the Team Pyro link because it looks promising.
I plan on spending some time on their "Different Gospels" post this weekend. Thought I'd check more into the Pagitt-MacArthur Yoga debate. Looks like Todd Friel from Way of the Master has weighed in and think that might be interesting to listen to.

I saw part of this clip last night when we remembered that Cousin Jeff's Titans were playing on Monday night football. Go Titans!
All they showed was the little bit where he says he's a man, he's 40. No context. Now that I see the context, I kind of like the guy.
Sometimes there are no quick solutions and no pat answers. All we can do is trust in God who is always loving, merciful, gracious, kind, faithful, and worthy.
This article by John Piper is a reminder of that.

Patricia said in response to the crazy Sally Field Emmy acceptance speech:
“I’ve actually become a more violent person since I became a mother, If someone came between me and my kids, they’d be dead meat. So I didn’t agree with that particular statement.”

Anyone know more about the guy than Wiki has to offer, or why he would say this in a book he wrote, or why Christian blogs I read are quoting him? Am I missing something?
"Today I personally believe that while Jesus came to open the door to God's house, all human beings can walk through that door, whether they know about Jesus or not. Today I see it as my call to help every person claim his or her own way to God."

In such cases separation is a virtue and not a sin.The old saying must never be forgotten, "He is the schismatic who causes the schism"... Controversy in religion is a hateful thing... But there is one thing which is even worse than controversy, and that is false doctrine, allowed, and permitted without protest or molestation.
