November 25, 2005


I have just found out from my sister, on MSN Messenger, that it has just started snowing at home and now i'm not happy.
Why can't it snow here, all we get is rain, fog and a lot of wind.
It would have been really good if it has snowed today. Snow on christmas day (on Rootes O Ground) would have been great.

Feeling A Bit Better

Wednesday afternoon I went out with the Christian Union to do some evangelism. I got to talk to a 3rd year Physics student about God and creation etc. It was quite fun and left me feeling good inside. I never like talking to people and worry that I won't know what to say. Thankfully I know that I don't have to worry and once I had got into a conversation I was fine. I knew that God was with me, and would help me know what to say, due to this passage.

Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I'll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age

Matthew 28:19-20 - The Message


Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.

Matthew 28:19-20 - New International Version

depends which version you like better.

Later on I went to the CU main meeting and the guy was talking about "What does Jesus mean to me?" He went through this pasage which made me thing actually how much Jesus did for us and that I had forgotten this.

What comes out of a man is what makes him 'unclean.' For from within, out of men's hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery, greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly. All these evils come from inside and make a man 'unclean.

Mark 7:20-23 - New International Version

It's what comes out of a person that pollutes: obscenities, lusts, thefts, murders, adulteries, greed, depravity, deceptive dealings, carousing, mean looks, slander, arrogance, foolishness— all these are vomit from the heart. There is the source of your pollution.

Mark 7:20-23 - The Message

He used a really good analogy to a guy who worked as a security officer for a company in the twin towers. When the 1st plane crashed he went running through the offices banging on the desks telling everyone that they needed to get out. Some of them went but some of them said that they were too busy or on the phone or any other number of excuses. He then went round again, putting phones down and making people get out of the building. he refused to leave until everyone had got out.
Only 6 of the ~2500 people from that company died and he was one of them. If you asked those people who survived what that guy had done for them, they wouldn't say "Not much!" or "Who's he?" they would say "He saved my life!". The same is true withe Jesus. He died so that you could live on. He saved your life so when asked "What did he do for you?" you wouldn't say "Not much!" or "Who's he?" you would say "He saved my life!".

That was quite a poweful analogy and after praying I felt happy, relaxed and free again.

P.S. If anyone is interested there is a carol service at Coventry Cathedral on 30th November (Week 10) at 7pm. If you meet at the main campus bus stop between 5:30 and 6:15pm you can get free transport. Admission is free and you get free mice mince pies and hot drinks afterwards. If that isn't eneough of a reason to go I don't know what is. See you there

Happy Christmas

I would like to take this opportunity to wish everyone a

Happy Christmas

as today is the 25th November.

We are having a full turkey roast and will probably eating turkey sandwiches 'til the end of term. I have heard that one kitchen is cooking a 12–16 person turkey for 12 of them. We cooked a 8–10 person turkey last friday and there is still some left a week later.
We have had stockings already with sweets and little presents and we are giving secret santa presents later.

Enjoy the day everyone.
