Find your dream job!

Wednesday, August 31st, 2005

I saw this on America’s Job Bank. At first I thought this ad was suggesting that a garbageman is something someone would dream of being, but then I figured it was aimed at garbagemen who would like a job that doesn’t stink so much. However, judging by the smile on his face, he […]

Lutheran Carnival III

Sunday, August 28th, 2005

Frederick III, the Wise (1463-1525)
Elector of Saxony from 1486. Called “the Wise” because of his vision and astuteness, which raised little Saxony to the rank of the most influential power in Germany. At the death of Maximillian I (1519), Frederick was offered the Imperial crown, but he declined it. Frederick was largely […]

Russia: More Abortions than Births

Friday, August 26th, 2005

Horrifying.
About 1.6 million women had an abortion last year, a fifth of them under the age of 18, and about 1.5 million gave birth, said Vladimir Kulakov, vice president of the Russian Academy of Medical Sciences. “Many more� abortions weren’t reported.
According to the World Factbook, Russia’s population is at 144,526,278 (July 2003) and […]

Friday, August 19th, 2005

I received a Reader’s Edition of the Book of Concord from this groovy guy and have, so far, been delighted with what I’ve read.
I began underlining on the first page (Yes, I know - it’s a beautifully bound, hardback edition and I’m writing in it. I write in all my books. That’s what […]

Good News - Bad News

Thursday, August 18th, 2005

The Gospel of Jesus Christ is poorly understood, even in what the world views as a “Christian nation.” I think if a larger survey were conducted, it would be quite clear that we are not at all a Christian nation if only by virtue of our ignorance.
Andree Seu who writes for World Magazine conducted […]

Michael Card on the industry of CCM

Thursday, August 18th, 2005

Michael Card is one of my favorite artists precisely because he does not embody the plastic, contrived sound that defined early CCM. He is simply one of the best poets of our time. A recent article details the history of the commercialization of Christian music, and in it, Card’s quotes are the ones […]

I love Dell

Wednesday, August 17th, 2005

I do. I love Dell. This is, of course the “I love myself and what Dell can do for me,” kind of love. I purchased a Dell laptop almost a year ago along with a 3-year warranty and the cord, after heavy use, began to go out. Yesterday I chatted online […]

Poodle burgers at a dog show?

Thursday, August 11th, 2005

As Dan and I have visited one another, we have attended one another’s churches. He belongs to a church affiliated with the Lutheran Church Missouri Synod. I belong to one affiliated with the Wisconsin Evangelical Lutheran Synod. Dan is writing about his impressions of WELS churches and suggested I write about my […]

It’s all the rage now!

Monday, August 8th, 2005

Employee discounts have found their way from the showroom floor to the craft bin. Joann Fabrics is on the bandwagon!
Update 8/10/05: I just heard a Pizza Hut commercial advertising employee discounts. Save 50% on a pizza. They do limit it to one.
Update: I can’t believe I just did an update […]
