Flatlife: Not Theology, but Funny

I mentioned this at Sunday School today. It's on Dad's Cool Sites, but I thought I'd put it here as well.

It is Jonas Geirnaert's 2004 graduation project, selected for Short Films in Competition at the Cannes Film Festival 2004.

Rake Art

This has nothing to do with theology, but I thought y'all would find this cool. Clicking the title above takes you to a Flickr gallery by Lenny and Meriel who use a rake to make cool patterns in sand, then take pictures of it from the air using a camera mounted on a kite.

"I will not let you go until you bless me!"

Too bad the Angel who wrestles Jacob in Genesis didn't have access to the internet, blessing him would have been easy!

Click the link above to go to the Worldwide Blessing Generator, and have your computer randomly select a blessing for you to read.

So, is a randomly selected blessing worth anything at all? If you had gone into a church and had a minister or priest you didn't know bless you, would it be different?

The site was designed by people who seem earnestly interested in helping people. Does that make a difference?

The site includes blessings from non-Christian faiths. Does that make a difference? If not, would you feel comfortable using one of these in worship? Would you be able to defend your choice?

In the meantime:

May your day be filled with gladness of heart,

and reward you with the riches of gentleness and patience forever.

Grace comes to us as an unmerited favor. Be all ways gracious and you will be all ways favored.
Sing and laugh.
