LONG TIME NO WRITE

I can't believe it's been so long since either of us wrote something on this blog. Our excuse is that we have been busy writing and reading the hundreds of excellent posts on the CBE blog "The Scroll". If you haven't gone there yet, check it out!

I have decided to write on here at least once a week just in case someone drops by and wants to correspond after reading something a bit more up to date. We find ourselves discussing equality all the time and thinking of new reasons why it is so logical, appealing and biblical.

One thought which occured to me this week was the one of being a servant to each other in marriage and within the church family life. A servant does what the other person requires or would like, not what the servant feels is best for the one being served. So, how is that many use the term 'servant leader' and talk about 'having the last word' in times of disagreement etc.
If we are really serving one another we will do as Jesus said and "Do to others what we would like done to us"

'Bout time you two showed up. ;-)
How great to see you today 'singing owl' Yes we keep saying we should post at least weekly and now we know that at least one person may look in from time to time it will spur us on. We did get an email from another person connected with the 'Scroll' so we've had two encouragements now.

Disappointment - AW Tozer

I was really excited when I got hold of one of the latest AW Tozer books that was compiled by James L. Snyder, "The Crucified Life". When I began pastoring some 40 years ago I had everything that Tozer had written and they were incredibly formative in my approach to ministry. So to come across fresh material of Tozer's reignited the passion and got me looking at some of the other classics, like "The Pursuit of God" and "Knowledge of the Holy." Not content with that I started hunting around for anything Tozer on the internet and discovered that there is a biography out written by Lyle Dorsett, titled, "A Passion for God: The Spiritual Journey of A.W. Tozer." Then I read some reviews, of which there were many, but I was struck by the recurring theme that Tozer was a loner who was not even close to his wife and 7 children. This spiritual giant of a man was as alone in his death as he was in life. One of his colleagues noted that one of the last…

NO MORE POSTS ...

We are sorry to have to say that we are not going to post any more blogs on this site. The last post has been deleted because we couldn't alter the text size and colour, no matter how often we edited it?

We understand that it is virtually impossible to remove a blogsite from blogger so the site will be dormant. Sorry if you have visited and found it disappointing. We may blog again at a future time.




Talkback Radio

It's simply amazing what you can learn on talkback radio, here in Australia anyway. I'm not often in the car alone but when I am I like to listen to a Radio National station that features guest speakers on various subjects and invites comment from listeners who can become involved in the conversation. One such guest, who was responsible for a phenomenon called the 'Flynn Effect' was most interesting. His hypothesis is that the IQ's of 21st century educated westerners are increasing at the rate of 3-5% over time because of the way that we are now being taught to process information. He said that the analytical process and abstract thinking methodology has increased our capacity to think in the way that the IQ tests have been designed and we are therefore able to process the test puzzles etc. more easily.

Apparently he sparked off some controversy when he suggested that dark skinned people, who usually don't perform as well in the current IQ test format (because …
