September 11 - 5th Anniversary

My brother is back in the blogging world after being absent for a couple of months. Go over and check out his blog. He has some very insightful posts (he's the one with the brains in the family... but hey at least I can play sport!) and some great photographs. If you like what you see leave some comments and he might post more often!

Today he had some reflections on the 5th Anniversary of the terrorist attacks on 11th September 2001. They are very good. Go and check them out here. Here is some of what he said:
I remember the feeling of guilt that I was so shocked at this one event, when people die horrendous deaths that go unreported all the time, and the media puts an earthquake killing tens of thousands on page 7 of the paper, while this event that killed comparatively few has occupied so much front page space and prime-time air time over the last 5 years. But I think the shock was that it brought the reality of death and terror to a place much closer to home. It wasn't my city, it wasn't my country. But it was so close to where I'm at. Office workers turning up to work in their sleek city skycrapers, thinking it's a day like any other. That's what I do every day.
This Friday night we are having our combined youth event (coast youth REVOLUTION) and the theme of the night is: If I were God I'd end all the suffering. I'm planning on making a slide show with photos from the past few years of terrible suffering including wars, disasters and the like. I look forward to hearing Paul Dale speak on what God has done to put an end to suffering.

After my short article last week on Mary J. BLING, Time magazine has decided to run a follow-up article on the prosperity gospel.

    Hi Jon. I've just changed the settings so that anyone can comment. I think it was just set to a default setting such that only those with blogger accounts could comment - it's not something I deliberately chose.

    are you a mate of Dave's? top

    I think with 9/11 it was the day that the world as we know it changed forever and most people could not and still cannot understand how people could have so much hate for people they don't know ,and the fact that there was nothing (in our minds) for them to gain from killing themselves and all those people.

    I think christians should be careful not to take the attitude of "It was god's will" yes it may certainly have been , but as a christian we ought to show compassion and understanding to all of god's people,especially in a world where so many people are looking for answers.

    As for the Time magazine story I have my opninion but I will let you make up your own minds. top
