Almighty God, give us grace that we may cast away the works of darkness, and put upon us the armour of light, now in the time of this mortal life, in which thy Son Jesus Christ came to visit us in great humility; that in the last day, when he shall come again in his glorious majesty to judge both the quick and the dead, we may rise to the life immortal, through him that liveth and reigneth with thee and the Holy Ghost, now and ever. Amen.
A poster for a creative workshop. And there is a competition too - submit the ideas that pop up during your showers! I like the description of who should attend - as long as you shower regularly you are welcome.
Let's go shower and get some ideas! Maybe you'll be inspired!
I've been wearing black since Monday (but today I'm not because I've ran out of black shirts :P).
It's a black black week. My feelings are mixed. On Sunday we had an election. We thought there'd be a great change.
On Monday, the change did not come. The same day I got the news that a pastor in Vietnam has committed suicide. It's really a black black week. I mourn for democracy. I mourn for the lost soul.
But there is always hope.
Yesterday I was on my way home from the university. Usually the drive would take about 15 minutes. But yesterday night I was caught in traffic jam for almost 2 hours. I saw people in black shirts, marching beside the road, carrying flags and shouting "Ubah! Ubah!". And motorcyclists honking and shouting "Ubah! Ubah!". Instead of grumbling about the jam, I was exhilarated. The change has already begun, around us, in the hearts of Malaysians.
This was the happiest traffic jam I've ever had. Even though I did not attend the Perhimpunan at Kelana Jaya (was driving alone and not familiar with the place), my heart was there.
And there is hope in Jesus.
I don't know why the pastor choose to take his own life. A pastor's stress is tremendous. It could be the moment of weakness that has prompted him to do that. I pray that God will show him mercy during the Second Advent. Only He could truly understand our hearts.
