The More Things Change...

the more they stay the same? That seems like an appropriate bit of wisdom to keep in mind as I reflect on part of the message I received at church yesterday. But I should backtrack a bit.

As some may recall, I have recently been doing some searching for a new church home. This has included some research into what most would probably consider to be some pretty radical belief systems. For example, I dug pretty deeply into the Thomasine Church, although at this time I don't think it is right for me. Trying to keep somewhat in alignment with Judeo-Christian faiths, I also recently looked at some of the non-mainstream denominations like the Mennonites. Out of this, one that I found that was particularly interesting to me is the Quaker faith. I even went so far as to read A Living Faith by Wilmer A. Cooper which covered a lot of the history and belief system of the Quakers. As an aside, jmo, but it seems the Quaker faith is as diverse as any of the other mainstream Christian denominations (think of all the different forms of Baptist there are).

The Microtrix

While surfing around this evening, I ran across a link to the blog post below (click on the graphic or the text link). And seeing as it combines a couple of my favorite things - poking fun at Microsoft and The Matrix - I thought I would pass it along. Unless you are really geeky like me, I suspect you may not see the humor in it. If you do see the humor, I'm glad you are out there!
