Today we look at what the Primary Team have been up to on mission. My special guest is my good friend Tash Small.
Sermon from Genesis 33. Given at St Luke’s Liverpool in 2008. There are a lot of similarities between Jacob/Esau and Schwarzenegger/DeVito from the movie Twins…
Over the last few years, Harper Collins have been realising a series of small books called The Simpsons Library of Wisdom. Previous titles include: The Bart Book, The Book of Moe and Comic Book Guy’s Book of Pop Culture. I own Comic Book Guy and it’s a hoot. Made up of mostly one page gags, they make nice little books to sit on your coffee table for people to flick through. Last week, while browsing the shelves at Moore Books, I found something I had to have. I found Flanders’ Book of Faith.
Me and a mate used to be regulars at the Comedy Store in Sydney. Almost every Thursday we’d be there for improv night or to see some stand up. Some comedians were fantastic, some less so. One particular comedian became our bench mark for bad stand up. “How funny was it?” “**** funny (Name omitted because I don’t feel like slagging him in a public forum)” “Oh, THAT bad was it?” You got to learn a lot about a comedian through their set – their hopes, their dreams, their political leanings. But I don’t recall ever seeing a comedian who was upfront about being a Christian. In Thou Shalt Laugh 2: The Deuce, every Comedian is a Christian. So was it any different?
By Mark Driscoll and Gerry Breshears
I really enjoy what I’ve read and heard from Mark Driscoll. He has a certain blokey, no holds barred kind of approach that really speaks to me. Vintage Jesus is his first work dealing with theology rather than Church pragmatics. Is it any good?
