Mike, Mahathir, Martin

Today is a mixture of all sorts of feelings and thoughts.

Yaconelli_2.jpg I just got news that Early Thursday morning, October 30, we lost a friend, a father, an inspiration. Co-founder and owner of Youth Specialties (YS), Mike Yaconelli, was in a fatal car accident in northern California late Wednesday evening. Ihad been blessed tremendously by his articles and especially his book Dangerous Wonder which taught me that child-like faith is to Jump first, Fear later! (something we forget so easily!)

Mahathir.jpg Malaysia’s 78 year old Prime Minister for the past 22 years will be stepping down today. A man full of vision, focus, paradox and even controversy (especially with recent remarks on the Jews in his OIC speech and even advice to the Jews!) too needs to steps aside and allow history to unfold in a new way for us in Malaysia. Personally, I don’t know what to say. I guess, I’ll ride on what My young friend Wai Nyan’s has posted a personal tribute for him.

crluther.jpg It all started 486 years ago when Luther nailed his Ninety-Five Theses on the door of the Castle Church on October 31st, 1517. Reformation Day is to remember the spark that has changed the course of Christian history … in fact, world history (For more check out Project Wittenberg , he’s even got a movie and a new book out this year!) Like the song goes, “It only takes a spark to get a fire going!”

    Hey, Alphadarius (my pastor) directed me to your blog. Great to see another Malaysian Christian blogging! I noticed your blog doesn’t load fully, it’s kind of “cut off” (or truncated) where the right sidebar ends. Try adding <br clear=”all” /> just before the </body> tag in your template, right at the end. That should do the trick!

    good to have extra-tech-gurus to help out. I’ll try to see whether i can get it right .. if not, I need to refer this to my high-tech-mahaguru Kiffer. BTW, thanks irene for the tip. I’m an “inbetweener” when it comes to technology … accidently learnt how to scan a document/picture and save as a PDF file in Adobe Photoshop. That’s my level .. learning by accident.
