a reminder

November 17, 2011

Faith is not based on feeling. Anytime I believe this, I feel condemned. It would be exhausting to try to feel hopeful everyday.

Faith is based on fact, the truth of God’s Word. Here’s an amazing promise I am reminded of today:

I Thessalonians 5:23-4 “Now may of the God of peace sanctify you completely, and may your whole spirit and soul and body be kept blameless at the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ. He who calls you is faithful; he will surely do it.”

an observation

November 5, 2011

As I’m a bit sick tonight and can’t go out to see fireworks for Guy Fawkes, I watch Dry the River videos. Here’s one of my favourites:

My observation is this. Bass players virtually have nothing to do in videos. Is there/should there be such a thing as an acoustic bass? I think the bassist for this band plays it off really well. He’s a very happy guy. I saw them perform live last Halloween and he jumped through the entire set.
