Seriously.
Had 10 points too.
Parked the lawn tractor in front of the church too.

We’re home

Posted by joelbyer on April 18, 2008

Yes folks as the title would suggest, we is home. IHC was great! Unfortunately, I didn’t not have Internet access while at the hotel. They had this little box thingy that was supposed to hook me up with high speed internet…but either it didn’t work, or I was too dense to figure it out. grrr…. 😦
Anyway, great to be back! We met oodles of fellow bloggers, myholiness cronies, and other miscellaneous acquaintances, family, enemies, etc. 🙂

A quote from CS Lewis that I used in tonight’s message…

Posted by joelbyer on April 13, 2008



“…nine times out of ten the most obvious one is some sin against charity; I have
sulked or snapped or sneered or snubbed or stormed. And the excuse that
immediately springs to my mind is that the provocation was so sudden and
unexpected; I was caught off my guard, I had not time to collect myself. Now
that may be an extenuating circumstance as regards those particular acts: they
would obviously be worse if they had been deliberate and premeditated. On the
other hand, surely what a man does when he is taken off his guard is the best
evidence for what sort of a man he is? Surely what pops out before the man has
time to put on a disguise is the truth? If there are rats in a cellar you are
most likely to see them if you go in very suddenly. But the suddenness does not
create the rats: it only prevents them from hiding. In the same way the suddenness of the provocation does not make me an ill-tempered man it only shows me what an ill-tempered man I am. The rats are always there in the cellar, but if you go in shouting and noisily they will have taken cover before you switch on the light.”
