Just received this serious material from a former professor, thought it might brighten your day. And they say Baptists are "tight" on communion - What about this? in New Jersey, an 8-year old girl suffering from a rare digestive disorder, who cannot eat wheat, took her first communion, but the parish declared it invalid because she used a rice wafer! Poor youngster - what does this do to her eternal soul? (Or does that depend on your theology?) Several "tidbits" on the evolution issue: Now dinosaur soft tissue has been examined, and it doesn't fit the template! When a thigh bone was broken open, it contained - ready for this? - BLOOD VESSELS, WITH RED BLOOD CELLS - fully preserved, flexible, transparent - not at all what the "old earth" advocates expected. If "dino" has been extinct for some hundred million years (give or take a million - like the federal debt, who cares?) - we should not expect such flexible blood vessels and cells. And the "extinct" ivory-billed woodpecker (last seen in 1944) has been re-discovered - of all places, IN ARKANSAS! (Please, no comments about any recent president.) A British conference (Bristol University) on "Compassion in World Farming" has concluded, by research (no doubt tax-funded) that "cows experience pain, fear, and happiness; can form friendships in a herd; are good problem-solvers," and - get this - "can hold grudges"!!!! Anyone who grew up milking cows or watching them milked could have saved some tax dollars on this one! Maybe we ought to let the cows solve some of this sort of problem! ----- Original Message ----- From: "Jeff Hallmark" <bc_preacher@...> To: <pastorsforum@...> Sent: Tuesday, July 12, 2005 9:45 AM Subject: [PastorsForum] Good Morning GOOD MORNING My face in the mirror Isn't wrinkled or drawn.
