"Not long ago I read a newspaper article about an executive at Boeing. The reporter asked him to name the secret of his success, and he said, 'There is nothing I can do about the past. The only thing you can do anything about is the future.' Christ saw life differently. For Christ, the only thing you can do anything about is your past. God alone can deal with your future. If you have repented of your past, if you have taken an inventory of the full extent of hurt, victimhood, malice, and self-service that describe your achieved life, if you have said the one single needful word, 'sorry,' then that is all. There is nothing more. The future, which Paul would later call the 'fruit of the Spirit,' flows totally from the 'sorry.' The past resolved gives the present its only chance. The future is the Spirit's job." p. 11

Most importantly, Dad's new book for which many of us have been waiting a very long time, has just arrived. I am reading it now, engrossed, and eating up every page! It can be ordered from Amazon.com via the following link:
Also, I have a new two-hour radio show starting this Wednesday on Viva-Radio. It will air every other Wednesday, from 10pm-midnight, though, if you miss it, the show will be available from the Viva web-site's archives for two months after the initial show is broadcast. Do check it out, and pass the word on. There are many other great people contributing to the content as well, so maybe browse the archives a bit. I personally am especially fond of the sets by Bumrocks, Dan Selzer, and Jaques Renault, for starters.
Here's another link: CLICK ME!
Lastly, I have a mix going up on CosmicDisco.co.uk on the 31st of this month. This mix collects many of my favorites of recent years. It's more intellectual and less dancey than some of the others I've posted here.
