“When men feed on the word, it is turned into a principle of life, spiritual strength, and growth within; which a taste of it only will not give. As food, when it is digested, turns into flesh and blood and spirits, so doth the word, and Christ therein, unto the souls of men spiritually. Hence Christ becometh “our life,” and “liveth in us,” as the efficient cause of our spiritual life, Gal. 2:20; Col. 3:3; and we grow and increase by the word, 1 Pet. 2:2. A mere taste, though it may yield present refreshment, yet it communicates no abiding strength. Hence multitudes relish the word when it is preached, but never attain life, or strength, or growth by it.” (John Owen, The Works of John Owen vol. 7, 31)

Free Preschool in San Jose

An initiative is likely to go before voters, taxing the affluent so that all kids can get a chance to go to preschool. With companies outsourcing and jobs going overseas, our students are going to compete in a world market against very aggressive foreign students. It’s even more important that every child has a good start in preschool. I say vote yes when this comes before voters.

Ghost seen in car ad!

MAKE SURE YOU READ THIS FIRST THEN WATCH THE VIDEO, the volume isn’t that great…. Be sure to turn up the volume.
Strange but interesting. This is a car advertisement from Great Britain. When they finished filming the ad, the film editor noticed something moving along the side of the car, like a ghostly white mist. The ad was never put on TV because of the unexplained ghostly phenomenon. Watch the front end of the car as it clears the trees in the middle of the screen and you’ll see the white mist crossing in front of the car then following it along the road…...Spooky!
Is it a ghost, or is it simply mist? You decide. Ghostly Mist Movie gulp

Low Rise Jeans

Lately, it has been very hard, even for men to get a regular pair of jeans. Most of the new jean styles have been those low rise jeans. You can choose a moderately low rise, or super low rise. In Queen Latifa’s latest movie “Beauty Shop”, the mother described these jeans as “coming down to the top of her burning bush”!
At our church, Church on the Hill, most junior high students are wearing these jeans. Many of the activities require student to bend this way and
that, or sit on the floor. These low rise jeans are not very attractive in these situations. It wasn’t attractive to see crack when the plumbers did
it, and it still isn’t attractive when youngster do it. Just say no to crack!
Thankfully, the jean companies are giving us some relief and are beginning to provide some higher rises on these jeans. It seems that they are even going so far as to provide ultra high rise jeans. I suppose so we can look like we have no belly? I’ve been trying to get rid of mine, so perhaps I’ll try one out.  smile
