Random observations

Ok, no week in review this week. Maybe next week. Instead, tonight we bring you:

RANDOM OBSERVATIONS!

So, here they are:

1. Anybody that said Fireproof was a badly made movie never watched the Scorpion King.

2. The Disney corporation has never let facts get in the way of telling a great story.

3. When you play Fantasy Golf, not taking Tiger Woods seems dumb. But then you take him, and he goes -2, par, -2 and is 7 strokes back!!

4. I can't pick fantasy baseball any better than I can pick the NCAA Tournament bracket. On the upside, I beat President Obama, even though he picked UNC, which was right, and I picked Gonzaga.

5. Why did pick Gonzaga anyway? I want to take some classes from them, but can't afford. Maybe I should make a bet with their admissions people...

6. An Easter egg hunt is no place to discuss rabbit hunting.

7. Speaking of the Masters, what happened to that whole thing about women members at Augusta National?

8. Computers sometimes miss the obvious.

9. I like my new Blackberry. I can email from my phone!

10. You get what you pay for, you get what you ask for. This is what's going on in politics...we got what we asked for, now we get to pay for it.

11. The NBA Playoffs and the NHL Playoffs are apparently around the same time. Does this diminish the likelihood of a Canadian Basketball team making the NBA Finals? Or just that nobody will care, eh?

12. Is it hard for anybody else to take Jim Carrey seriously about real issues? Even though he does have some interesting things to day?

13. Why is the C-130 the obligatory big airplane to get blown up in movies these days? Independence Day, Transformers, it's jet, jet, jet, Hercules...

14. If the upswing in autism isn't related to vaccines, then what is it related to? And shouldn't there be a little more credence given to the question? And maybe some research not funded by drug companies?

15. Are they lip-syncing in The Sound of Music?

16. Why does ABC always show The Ten Commandments Saturday before Easter? Is The Greatest Story Ever Told unavailable? Or is it for Passover?

17. You can't hold a laptop and a cat at the same time.


That's my random observations for the night...

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…
