Pray for Yemen: Saleh is gone

Good news or bad news? Worst case scenario: Yemen disintegrates becoming another Somalia. Lord have mercy...

But do read this CNN article and pray for peace and stability and for the Gospel to advance and flourish there.

CS Lewis on Magic, Modernity and Reality

A brilliant quote!

“For the wise men of old the cardinal problem had been how to conform the soul to reality, and the solution had been knowledge, self-discipline, and virtue. For magic and applied science alike the problem is how to subdue reality to the wishes of men: the solution is a technique: and both, in the practice of this technique, are ready to do things hitherto regarded as disgusting and impious.”

--C.S. Lewis, The Abolition of Man

The Breeders: Cannonball

Totally unrelated to Islam or Christianity (as far as I know), but an awesome group and fun song. Hey, it's MY blog ;-)
