thanks bbc

my two of my friends (one and two) got me hooked on the bbc. to them i owe many thanks for plugging me back into world affairs.

president bush gave a speech regarding the current financial crisis. it was really good. okay, the delivery wasn't, but what he said was
really important. for the article and video, go here. if you are too lazy, he basically called congress to action. did you know that the president has a higher approval rating than congress? i think i heard that congress had a seventeen percent approval rating. really?? that is stinkin low!

funny story: as i watched my video from president bush, i went to increase the volume and it was at "nine," so i was like, "oh, i can go up one more." boy, was i ever wrong! it goes to eleven! that's right folks-eleven!!! spinal tap anyone???

then i was devastated to read that there was another tragic accident in india. 147 people were killed in a stampede and structural failure of a hindu temple in jodhpur, rajasthan. please believe that my heart is crushed. maybe God is showing Himself through the destruction of this temple (or maybe i read into things too much). nevertheless, 147 people who probably didn't know Jesus the Christ and the reality of the gospel are dead. 147 people are faced with the glory of God as they bow before Him in heaven without the knowledge or the regection of Him here. did they ever get to hear?

"My name will be great among the nations, from the rising to the setting of the sun. In every place incense and pure offerings will be brought to my name, because my name will be great among the nations," says the LORD Almighty." Malachi 1:11
