Nothing to blog

Okay having a break from blogging today, too much other stuff to be doing. Looking forward to Shannon coming up next week. Michaela got her own laptop so now we can communicate electronically - aint technology great.

Not many comments lately, maybe we need a controversial post again...something like...despite the form books, why are Man Utd still the best team in Europe.

Been suffering from severe pins and needles lately, may go for a course of acupuncture see if that helps. Met a nice guy tonight, he was really small, said he worked as a lumberjack in a Bonsai forest.Had an email from some cannibals tonight, they had just ate a clown but said he tasted a bit funny.

Saw this, I know its old, but I added an emergent one at the bottom, so there you go...I'm not blogging anything?

How Many Church Members Does it Take to Change A Light Bulb?
  • Charismatic: Only one. Hands already in the air.
  • Pentecostals: Ten. One to change the bulb, and nine to pray against the spirit of darkness.
  • Presbyterians: None. Lights will go on and off at predestined times.
  • Roman Catholic: None. Candles only.
  • Baptists: At least 15. One to change the light bulb, and three committees to approve the change and decide who brings the potato salad.
  • Episcopalians: Three. One to call the electrician, one to mix the drinks and one to talk about how much better the old one was.
  • Mormons: Five. One man to change the bulb, and four wives to tell him how to do it.
  • Unitarians: We choose not to make a statement either in favor of or against the need for a light bulb. However, if in your own journey you have found that light bulbs work for you, that is fine. You are invited to write a poem or compose a modern dance about your light bulb for the next Sunday service, in which we will explore a number of light bulb traditions including incandescent, fluorescent, three-way, long-life and tinted, all of which are equally valid paths to luminescence.
  • Methodists: Undetermined. Whether your light is bright, dull, or completely out, you are loved. You can be a light bulb, turnip bulb, or tulip bulb. Church-wide lighting service is planned for Sunday. Bring bulb of your choice and a covered dish.
  • Nazarene: Six. One woman to replace the bulb while five men review church lighting policy.
  • Lutherans: None. Lutherans don't believe in change.
  • Amish: What's a light bulb?
  • Emergent: First we need to work out which light bulb is culturally relevant, then we need to blog about the postmodern concept of light bulbs and then finally seek permission from Starbucks to see if they will allow us to tamper with their light fittings.

Just thinking about the title of your blog here 'Nothing to blog'and the respose thaht one of your blogs got from a blogger called Christian lies. It's funny how at times the message that speaks the loudest about a person is what they don't say in their saying! If you know what I mean!!

So what do we say in our saying and what don't we say in our saying? And what do people hear? Take Christian lies's comment what we heard was what wasn't said. Now with that in mind what is the world hearing from the church?
