To our many many readers. This blog is over, done, kaput. But do not fret! We shall continue our blogging misadventure at the brand-spankin' new: It'll pretty much be the same thing as before, but now in pseudo-haiku form...and more consistent posts. With only 17 syllables per post, we could increase our productivity to at least 5 post a month (or maybe more).

So, go on, check out the new You know you want to.

Why the T4G Blog is Silent...

OH NOES! Challies has the scoop. However, it still doesn't explain the general silence on this blog.

Turn down that racket!

I have three thoughts:

  1. I don't think the kids should necessarily being punished for being loud, but for AC/DC so badly.
  2. I don't think that it's such a bad idea for the "old fogeys" to learn to appreciate modern music.
  3. However, I also do think that its a good idea for the kids to learn to appreciate other music as well.
  4. Barney? Barney?! Come on, that must be torture for the judge as well!
  5. And I bet that judge was just loud and rebellious when he was a youngin'.

the remedy

Q: How do you prevent or recover from a cold?
A: Ginger tea!!

It will...
1. clear your sinuses
2. fight bacteria in your throat
3. taste good
4. make you feel better (as a result of 1-3)

so for all those students who will be getting sick as they return from thanksgiving break - stock up on this beautiful root (or on drinks made of this beautiful root) and enjoy!

for those who are interested, i have a box of ginger tea packets :D

In Recent News

Last night was our weekly large group meeting as usual. We were blessed to have Pastor Aaron Campbell from Antioch Church (affiliated with Calvary Chapel of Philadelphia) come and speak to us on Doing Everything to the Glory of God. Aaron's talk explored the glory of God - who He is and what He does. "Everything we do either carries the weight of God's glory or makes light of it."

On a more homey note..we have some new additions to 3500. Meet:

Chinwe - Sophomore studying business. Hailing from Nigeria for 2 years now.
Melodie - Sophomore studying biology. Currently on co-op with a pharmaceutical company in Exton.
Nyssa - Sophomore studying business administration. Messianic awesome!
Matt Marron - Sophomore studying computer science. On co-op in Center City working with IT.
Ben Raush - Sophomore studying software engineering. Is more or less nocturnal.
Matt Hartshorne - Junior studying material science engineering. Sleeps with a shotgun.
Nathan Lee - Sophomore studying computer engineering. Co-oping in West Chester for a fiber optics company (Chris Lester, Matt Kessler & Gerre Strait have all also worked there)

Coming in the Spring: Ali Hanes - Junior studying Film. Currently on co-op in Ireland.

The Swing
- There has been a swing installed in the doorway of 1F. It can be tucked away for safe passage in and out of the apartment. Wonderful for any time of the day or year.
Bumper Pool Table - Also in 1F. New means of procrastination, competitiveness and fun. Imported from New Jersey.

"Thinking like a slave"

Team Pyro has a great post about why we need to be involved at church, explaining how those who make excuses for not being a part of a church share the same flaw that "every one of them views the Christian life as a process of negotiation."

Another key point:

You see? It's all one. Jesus is Lord, or we are. If we are, He isn't; if He is, we aren't.

You and I need to think like a slave; and not only a slave, but a crucified slave, who has died to his old master, and come to life for another.

Then you and I take our truckload of excuses and
rationales and dodges and rationalizations, we say "Yep, I'm going to need help," we take them and ourselves to the Cross, we count ourselves dead to them, we plead for the enabling grace of God...

...and we obey.
