End of a long sunday

Just a quick note to keep up the blogging, the sermon from yesterday was received well, despite the fact i thought it was slightly controversial (maybe not, perhaps i was just stating the obvious). I was interested to see Conrad Gempf's take on it - a wonderfully thoughtful way of expressing that the statement Jesus made was a test - good to read a solid bit of exegesis that disagrees with mine!

On another note, I'm quite pleased with increase in blog traffic here, but not many comments! I was also interested to see that i was surfed by the pentagon a few days ago - maybe because in one newspaper article which referred to the Iranian President's entry into the blogsphere he was described as 'New Kid On The Blog'.

there are a few of us with that name, but i've not found one older than mine yet, so i can at least feel a bit original...

Again on another note, i have enjoyed using blogger but am increasingly seeing blogs which say that typepad(?) is more flexible, easier to use, greater capacity - I have no idea and have no desire to move, the only frustration i have had is not being able to figure out how to put two sidebar columns on my blog so the right hand bar has got longer and longer... Anyone got any thoughts on that, or anything else, that they want to share?

Well, I know nothing yet about beta blogger, though I'm interested yes. What I do know is that I think Jesus didn't make a mistake and yet we witness him changing his mind ... I don't think any of us in changing direction and emphasis therefore were mistaken beforehand, just differenly aligned (hope that's enough poitically correct bollocks for one comment).

But surely making a mistake emphasises Jesus' being like us - we do make mistakes, and it was perhaps a mistake for him to dismiss this woman so cruelly....
