Moving from Darkness to Light...

Stuart preached an inspiring sermon this morning about moving from living in darkness into living in the light.

He used Joan Osborne's song "One of Us" to help him make his point. It was thought provoking and the sermon should be up on the site soon (link here).

Guy closed the service with Matt and Beth Redman's "Never Let Go". What an awesome way to start the week leading up to the biggest (or second biggest) Christian festival of the year.

Hoping you all have a very Blessed Christmas 2009.

Seasons Greetings

And Google goes one step further...

Talk about being passionate about something - have a look at this video...

Ideal for Critical Thinking or PSHE lessons?

I found this quote on the Do website (link) and thought what an excellent discussion it would make for my Sixth form...

“Many of the great businesses of the next decade will be about making information about our behaviors more visible.”

I like this about a purist...

A Google Poem

This Google poem was read on Saturday Live BBC Radio 4 this weekend. It’s by Matt Harvey, a performance poet.

A Google Poem

What's a google, Daddy?
Well, Son, I'm glad you asked:

It’s a sifter, filter, searcher
cyber guide and cyber Sherpa
all the world’s a google library
does it frighten me? Just slightly

It used to be a noun, son,
but it turned into a verb,
There is nothing you can't google,
Google cattle, Google poodle,
human folly, human foible
Google Babel, Google Breughel.

It shows you things your life is duller than,
Google Gilbert, Google Sullivan,
Shows you what’s for Google free,
for Google sale, and Google rental,
Shows things you shouldn’t Google see
It's so non judge-Google-mental,

Daddy, can we Google Google?
So we did. And there were oodles,
Google shopping, analytics,
Google earth and google physics,

Google info, Google-mation
Google dream interpretation,
Google gosh gorblimey crikey,
Google probing Google psyche,

So to return to your original question,
Google is a bit more than a search engine
And a bit less than a sentient life form
Taking over the world, we hope?

About me

I am an African living in Scotland. A son, a father, an ex-husband, a boyfriend, a teacher and friend trying to piece together the stories that my God, my parents, my ex-wife, my girlfriend, my pupils and my friends are telling me, so that I can tell my own story. Thanks to all for your support and advice. I still love good coffee and popcorn.
