I chose Bruce because he looks the most like me out of all of the choices. LOL Of course I am not as handsome as he is but I do have a little more hair. LOL

I see Jack Ryan as a decent looking average kind of guy who wears glasses. Not sure who should play him. I do not see Jack as a Hollywood beefcake at all. LOL

I've been reading some books by Grace Livingston Hill that I bought at the library book sale.   I have a feeling they're from some little old lady's attic, since most were written in the 1920's.  They are, of course, very dated in many ways but I just love this glimpse into the lives of Christian women at a time when life was so different and morals were held to such a high standard. Inspiring.

I'll bet your mother is a lovely woman.  She proably kept it all these years because there's something really special about the writer.

I think it was passed down from her grandmother, who read constantly.

Right now I'm reading "How to Save the Dying Church of Christ" by Dan Lyle.  Each chapter closes with a number of practical action suggestions. Very helpful, and less vitrolic than my, uh, I mean Tony Branch's book.

I just downloaded this book, I've only looked through the introduction and first chapter so far:

corporate logos: consumerism and growth of apostasy


 [link deleted]

so far, looks interesting, i'll come back and add a review when I've read the whole book
I've read 'Link Deleted' several times. It gets better with every reading. I thought 'Link Removed' was better, though.

Otherwise, I think occasional apostasy is good for the soul. We all have some beliefs that need to be rejected.
Clearly you greatly enjoyed *Link Removed*, since it is now your signature here!  It seems you are also a fan of *text removed*, judging by your text.

*reply removed*

(fwiw, my status is poking fun at whichever mod deleted the link in my sig without notifying me, while I was still a mod myself.)

Here's the weird thing - modifying users text/sigs isn't a mod power.  I think an admin has to do it.  My guess would be that Bob probably did a mass wipe of link sigs at some point when he was doing an upgrade of the bulletin boards.

It happened pre-Bob.


One of three sigs I had was removed, one containing a link to a blog I no longer used (and which no longer featured a link to GCM, likely why it was removed. My problem was that I wasn't notified or asked to include a link so it wouldn't be removed.) I hadn't thought about whether a mod could do it.

Anxious For Nothing God's cures for the cares of your soul
By: John Macarthur

Sounds like something I need to read. I know He wants us to put all our cares worries and troubles on Him so we can fully rely on Him. I know what the scriptures say. I just need some solid advice for putting it into practice when the going get's tough, so to speak. Growing up as a non-believer, I'm sad to say this is a habit I have yet to fully develop. Would you recommend this book based on what I need?

Also, I'm currently reading:
Action Bible (Don't judge, I got it for Christmas and I'm really enjoying it)
The Problem of Pain - C.S. Lewis
The Skeletons in God's Closet - Joshua Ryan Butler
and Isaiah in my NLT bible

It's pretty interesting so far. There are some things I don't quite agree with as far as Macarthur saying that when we worry it is actually a sin because Christ tells us to worry for nothing.
If that is true then it would be just as easily deemed a sin to cry at a parents funeral because of the scripture in 1 Thessalonians 4:13 and elsewhere.

But so far it's pretty good besides all that.

I'm reading Left Behind by Tim LaHaye and Jerry Jenkins. My wife says it's a great series, so I figured it's about time I read it. I'm an author myself and I've read that I need to read a lot of work in my genre which is Christian fiction.

Falling Upward: A Spirituality for the Two Halves of Life by Richard Rohr.

This is one of the best books I've read in a long time. I don't go in for inspirational, but this is absolutely inspiring.

"Waking Up in Heaven" by Crystal McVea.  It's a very inspirational story, and I highly recommend it.
