More Thought Provocation & Discussion Fodder
Mark Driscoll's response to all the furor stirring concerning his comments on the Ted Haggard fall is a great read. Just when I think Driscoll has lost it, he comes back to make a great lesson out of it all. Perhaps that's a doorway the Lord has given him in ministry - drop a hand grenade and then help people clean up the mess, and God brings some redeeming results our of it all. I like this response. What do you think?
What is the world coming to? By now you've learned that hundreds of people spent days at places like Walmart waiting to get the first PlayStation 3 units as the new video game system went on sale at midnight last night (this morning). I've even heard some CCA folks were at our Walmart since Wednesday. I love you guys... but I don't get it. Did you hear all the news items this morning about this madness? In Connecticut gunmen robbed people waiting in line. In Ohio, theives robbed a store of several units. And the units which sold for between $500 and $600 in stores, is being sold for upwards of $2500 on eBay today! Nope, that's not a typo. Now, if the folks at CCA were camping out to buy units at $500 to turn around and sell on eBay at $2500... then I hope they'll be tithing on the profits. Did you camp out at Walmart? What have you ever camped out for (concert tickets, perhaps)?
Saw the cover of O.J.'s new book today on the web. Check it out. Don't you just love how the 'If' is in the same color as his jacket, and therefore almost invisible, while the 'I Did It' is in red and stands out. Priceless... like Bruno Magli shoes. Anyhow, here's an article on Drudge about the publisher of the book. The last few days the furor has been 'Why would anyone publish this?' Are you kidding me? $$$$$$$$! The book isn't out yet, and it's a best-seller. So, hop in your Bronco and make a slow drive to the local bookseller... get in line. Camp out, anyone?
