"There’s nothing so beautiful as going back to normal."
Mahmoud Sadakah, a taxi driver, on the end of New York’s transit strike.
"We’ve got a transit strike here. I didn’t let it stop me. I had myself Fed-Ex’d to work. There’s terrible traffic here. The city’s like Dick Cheney — every major artery is clogged."
David Letterman, some random monologue joke from this past week
i spoke to a pastor that i know about a week ago who, as a person fairly informed about what is happening in the world today, did not know that willow creek was closing its doors to worshipers on Sunday Christmas day. wow, i was surprised.
i think that every church should be open when Christmas day falls on Sunday so that worshipers can have the option to attend or not. really, it only happens once every seven years or so (at least i think).
so, if the big ticket churches are closing their doors to Christ seekers on Sunday Christmas day, what message are they sending to our culture that has created this double meaning about Christmas? are the big ticket churches in fact encouraging the attitude of commercialism this holiday season by closing their doors on Sunday just because it is also December 25?

On this day, a day that will be remembered, the mother of the Civil Rights movement passed away from natural causes.
Known for her tenacity in refusing to move to the back of the bus because she was tired, Parks sat at the front of the bus for her ride home after a long day of work. Her peacefully act of defiance on that Montgomery, Alabama sent ripples through not only her community, but the entire United States.
Parks’ motives were not based on wanting to propel herself into the spotlight, but her motives were because she was not physically tired, but she was tired of the way she was treated because of her skin color. Parks did not look for celebrity, but it found her as her name has been pointed in thousands of history books through out the world.
Parks gave a needed shot in the arm to the Constitution.
Rosa Parks is one of my hero’s.
