Google AutoLink, Jesus, and Aids 

I wonder what kind of traffic I'll get with that title!
A few recent things:
  1. Google AutoLink in the beta version of the toolbar. A lot of people don't seem to like it. I found it quite handy - I ordered a comfortable-looking Mayan hammock from Hammock Jungle, and the order confirmation in my gmail account had a UPS tracking number. Much easier to just click on the tracking number and have the UPS page load automatically instead of cutting and pasting. I'll have to write more about the hammock later!
  2. I enjoyed Shane's Feb 24th post, "Did the Jews really reject Jesus?" Check it out!
  3. Alarming news about Aids in Africa. What are you going to do about it? Our church has a small group of students meeting in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. We'll be looking to them to bring life and hope. I'm not sure what the plans are for this summer, but there are rumblings about another trip.

Anyone still there? 

After a strong showing in 2004, I decided to take a break for a few months. But I'm back, because I'm sure there will be lots of interesting news.

For starters, check out the new Vineyard Xtreme site. The VX team section features some interesting bios. And I'm not sure how our webmaster did it, but the VX TV on the main page actually plays in the little window if you allow it to load (30 sec?, you can see the speaker turn red) with no need for real or winmedia player.

Did anyone else think about the Matrix when they saw this article for a new treatment for depression?
"Then Lozano drilled two small holes into each side of the skull in a two-hour procedure that took place under local anesthesia. He inserted two thin wires with electrode contacts, then tunneled the wires (about the diameter of uncooked spaghetti) underneath the skin behind the ear down to the chest. An incision was made under the collarbone so a battery could be placed there... Stimulation, which is adjusted individually for each patient, takes place 24 hours a day. "We think it's going to require ongoing stimulation," said Lozano. When stimulation was turned off in one participant, the depression returned within two weeks."

I'm picturing a large office filled with cubicles, when people arrive at work they plug their electrodes in, and work happily all day long. In fact, why go home? Work is now much more stimulating. Why waste your time with alcohol or drugs that damage the body when you can get direct stimulation?

Brother Timothy has been released! 

While Timothy's brother remains in jail, I want you to know that our brother Timothy has been released! I was reminded of this fact while reading Hebrews this evening, and it seems a good word to end the year with. I've been released from the past, from sin, from missed opportunities, from fear and doubt.

This past year has been quite eventful, how about some highlights by month:

May God Bless You in the New Year!
