Updates and...

Updates on the Big Dig of Shutesbury are on Musings from Shute-Ho. Septic dig was yesterday.

On a lighter note: Awesome play at UMass this and next weekend. House of Desires. Written by a female (a nun actually!) in the mid 17 th century in Mexico! It is performed as translated to English...funny and thought provoking...and very well acted by all...especially that Alec Nelson guy!! What a riot!!! Costume Assistant was Sarah Nelson (as in the wife of the actor). Next weekends shows are Thurs and Friday, Dec 8 & 9, at 8 PM (Rand Theater in the FAC) and Saturday, Dec 10, at 2PM. Students $5, adults $10. We may just go again..it is that good!

Alan Torrance Giving a Sermon

Here's the guy that made Scotland so awesome for me. I took his class on Karl Barth. He took me out for coffee, and I introduced my wife to him. Positively one of the nicest gentlemen I've ever met . . .

Evangelism Soldiers No More?

Just read this interesting article regarding a

new metaphor for evangelism

"Can I speak into your life?"

I heard this phrase a lot at YWAM. Sometimes it was much needed. Other times it was abused and heavy-handed.
However, there is a need among Christians who are interpersonally connected to do this (preferably refraining from any preface, such as "Can I speak into your life?"). If you have something to say, just say it. As I write my essay, I am reminded how such times of rebuke and honesty were the turning points in many relationships. So here's to all of you who've had the guts to do it, and reminder that we should not be afraid to do it. Risk offence, and help someone see the light of Christ. Had Christ not offended us, we would not be saved.

HTML done easy...

You can get some really easy HTML formatting without typing (or knowing) any code, by using this awesome tool from textism: Textile. It has a very easy to use method that you'll memorize much faster than straight code. And heck, I use it just because it's hella fast.

hypertext and links

hey everybody, please check out this guide to html. Posting links as links is one of the awesome advantages of using hypertext, it would be great if everyone could do it. The snippet of code to pay attention to is at the very top of the page beginning with Link Something. Your description of the link goes between the sets of brackets (ie <>description<>, i can't actually write out an example here because blogger checks html to make sure its correct and won't post anything that is not complete, how irritating). Thanks.
