Nudge: What Do You Know About The “Tech”nical Gospel?

I have some tech questions:

Does anyone know of any good, free Bible related apps?

Also, do you know of any apps (and things like podcasts) that are put out by the brotherhood?

If you have found one (or several) to be particularly useful in your studies, share what you know.

Nudge: Why Does God Encourage Children to be in Subjection to their Parents?

It’s not really open for debate – from the 10 Commandments of Moses’s Law, to the 6th Chapter of Ephesians, to the scathing rebuke of the scribes and Pharisees concerning the personal care (or the lack thereof) for their parents and ultimately God in Mark 7, God says children must take note of their parents when it comes to writing the chapters of their life story.

So here’s the nudge: Why is this such an important issue to God, and what about honoring parents who do not care for God or for His way of life?

I’d love to hear your answers, especially to the later part since so many young people (including Christians) deal with this family situation in our culture today.

Nudge…What Song Would Jonah Have Sung?

I didn’t ask (maybe I should have), but I don’t think Randal will mind if I use a “nudge” to try and get some conversation going this morning. It’s been a long while since I’ve seen one anyways. So here you go. Let me know what you think.

One of the amazing things to me about some of God’s people recorded in the Bible was their ability to sing in hard or even perilous times. Take Paul and Silas for the easiest example. Shackled in a stinking prison with open wounds on their body – and they’re singing at midnight…loud enough for other prisoners to hear them. Wow!

Here’s the nudge, if you so choose to participate: One person that comes to mind when it comes to facing a perilous time is Jonah. I know the scriptures say nothing about him singing, and I’m not trying to make them say it; but if Jonah was to have sung a song in his temporary jail cell, what do you think it would have been? For example, I think he could’ve sung, “Where Could I Go?” This is especially true when it comes to the chorus that echoes, “Where could I go, O where could I go, Seeking a refuge for my soul? Needing a friend to save me in the end, Where could I but to the Lord?

What say ye when it comes to what sang he?

Nudge: Road-trip essentials

Road tripAnswer if you dare: List your must-haves for a successful road trip, especially if it’s unusual. Why do you consider it essential?

With the hassle of air travel, perhaps the road trip is experiencing a revival, would you say? Unless fuel prices are keeping people home.

Thanks to plinky for today’s Nudge question.

Nudge: Confess a wasteful habit

Nudge...

Plinky suggested this Nudge today: Confess a wasteful habit of yours.

Doesn’t matter what’s being wasted, be it time, paper, gas, room heat, you name it. What do you do exactly that causes something to be wasted?

If confession is good for the soul, who knows but it may also be good for the budget and the environment?

Nudge: What magazine to be editor of

Here’s a little Nudge for Fellows and friends, coming from a suggestion on Plinky:

If you could be an editor for any magazine, which would you choose? It can be print or ezine, religious or other. Be sure to tell us why you chose as you did.

Humor

I love to laugh & enjoy good humor! Occasionally, I mistakenly take it too far (with folks who don’t share the same liberal sense of humor).

My sense of humor is broad. The Three Stooges really tickle my funny bone, but I’m open to any type of clean humor (whether “intellectual” or “stupid” humor). This is one reason why I enjoy preachers’ meeting so much. 🙂

My favorite all-time line–Moe says (as a serious compliment) to Larry–“Ya know, for a guy with no brains, you’re a genius!!”
LOL
