2. John Calvin said 'There is not one blade of grass, there is no colour in this world that is not intended to make us rejoice.'
4. I enjoyed reading -A pastors week.
5. I have been listening to Beautiful Eulogy
6. I met a man who runs Intercessors for Israel at the invitation of a pal for lunch. Interesting discussion around the table about 'the land' which we didn't all agree on. One of our number had been impacted by Matt 5:5 suggesting Jesus said 'Blessed are the meek who shall inherit the land' (not 'earth' as the NIV has it). I am going to look it up and study the verse. 'God is for us' has helped me on this emotive subject.
7. I have been given a talk to do with the title 'Known water- New winds'
8. A friend has just published this called 'The Gift of Blessing'
9. I like this suggestion to pick one theologian and study him for a lifetime.
10. I started a sentence today saying 'I am not very bright...' My school grades bear this out.
