Yahoo! News - New Virus Snarls Thousands of Computers

At this point in our program, we play the orchestration from Gladiator, while a voice over actor describes in haunting detail the need to apply any fix Microsoft issues to save their own can. This virus is exploiting a hole that was patched a few weeks ago. Doh. Right now, I'm not sure who's worse: people who don't update their PCs with patches in time to stop the infestations, or people who have way too much free time to write these rogue programs, or the Microsoft gurus that release this stuff with (evidently) insufficient negative testing.

  • Knock, Knock.
    Who's there?
    Piddly.
    Piddly who?
    heh heh heh - I don't remember, it's just funny hearing somebody say "piddly hoo"!

    We don't laugh enough in this world. We don't laugh as Christians, taking ourselves way too seriously. Just an observation, but the people in our churches aren't the happiest looking people on the planet. Who are the happiest looking? Lottery winners - and even then it's only going to be temporary. Before long, relatives and long-lost friends will begin scraping away from the pie, and the burden of being rich will swipe their joyous smiles from their faces.

    But children laugh easily. And when an adult laughs, they want to know what's funny so they can join in. Are coming to Jesus like children, ready and willing and yearning to laugh at something truly funny? Or are we already sour-pusses, with all of our innocence replaced by the heaviness of "real life"?

    Heh heh heh - piddly hoo.

    Time Changer

    Pastor Danny recommended this film. I hadn't seen anything on it, but it looks like it's in limited release in select cities/theaters, possibly underwritten by local churches and associations. Looks like it would be thoughtful and through-provoking, though. It's playing here in town at the Columbiana Grande. If I get to see it this weekend, I'll post a review - maybe get Pastor Danny to throw out some props, too.

    Do you read your bible?

    I mean, do you read your bible? Do you read the stories with a heart open to change? Do you research the words to find some note straight from God to your life? Are you changed when you do a morning deovtional? When the pastor preaches? When you leave church, are the same person who went in, or have you got a changed heart, transformed life, energized vision of what the kingdom is going to look like as you go forth.......?

    Perhaps it's not: "do you read your bible?"

    Maybe a better question would be: "does the bible read you?"
