    Knock at the Door

    A new pastor was visiting the homes of his parishioners. At one house it seemed obvious that someone was at home, but no answer came to his repeated knocks at the door. Therefore, he took out a card and wrote “Revelation 3:20″ on the back of it and stuck it in the door. When the offering was processed the following Sunday, he found that his card had been returned. Added to it was this cryptic message, Genesis 3:10.” Reaching for his Bible to check out the citation, he broke up in gales of laughter. Revelation 3:20 begins “Behold, I stand at the door and knock.” Genesis 3:10 reads, “I heard…

    Story of an Atheist

    An atheist was walking through the woods. He said to himself: “What majestic trees!” “What powerful rivers!” “What beautiful animals!” As he was walking alongside the river, he heard a rustling in the bushes behind him. He turned to look. He saw a 7-foot grizzly charging towards him. He ran as fast as he could up the path. He looked over his shoulder and saw that the bear was closing in on him. He looked over his shoulder again and the bear was even closer. He tripped & fell on the ground. He rolled over to pick himself up but saw that the bear was right on top of him,…

    Funny You Should Come To Me…

    A Jewish lawyer was troubled by the way his son turned out and went to see his Rabbi about it. “I brought him up in the faith, gave him a very expensive bar mitzvah, it cost me a fortune to educate him. Then he tells me last week he has decided to be a Christian. Rabbi… where did I go wrong?” “Funny you should come to me,” said the Rabbi. “Like you, I, too, brought my boy up in the faith, put him through university, it cost me a fortune, then one day he comes and tells me he has decided to become a Christian.” “What did you do?” asked…

    The Bible in the 21st Century

    The Last Supper would have been eaten the next morning … cold. The Ten Commandments would actually be only five … double-spaced and written in a large font. A new edition would be published every two years in order to limit reselling. Forbidden fruit would have been eaten because it wasn’t cafeteria food. Paul’s letter to the Romans would become Paul’s email to [email protected] Reason Cain killed Abel; they were roommates. Reason why Moses and followers walked in the desert for 40 years: they didn’t want to ask directions and look like freshmen. Instead of God creating the world in six days and resting on the seventh, he would have…

    Exam, Mass and a Sexy Bike!

    Had a Mock FMS exam this morning. From what I have been told, the FMS paper is extremely simple, but you have to literally fight for time! This was the case today and I am not happy with the performance 🙁 Lots of solving is still needed to build up speed. I had given my bike for servicing yesterday and she came back looking all shining and almost brand new. Had the battery changed as well since it was giving problems. Things look smooth so far. I’m happy. Had a wedding mass in the evening. U. Conrad had to rush so he asked me to play the final tracks. The…

    I’m not a CAT Person

    Sunday was the last of the AIMCATs and I was a bit apprehensive about the same. The AIMCAT was “decent” but as usual I missed the cutoff in Quant by a mark. Managed an 89.8 percentile which is definitely better than last week’s. Went for the Sunday evening mass. Thankfully it was dragged. Monday and Wednesday was at my friends place studing all day while on Tuesday. I’ve got three days left for the exam. Am tensed by am also not letting it effect me too much. Gave a paper yesterday (Wednesday) and the results were a lot better. It’s going to be simply the matter of timing and choice.…

    When I say, “I am a Christian

    Update: For those who read this before, I have corrected the poem. The incorrect version is stated to be by Maya Angelou. The actual poem is written by Carol Wimmer. You can read the history on her site as well as Urban Legends. Here is the original version: When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not shouting, “I’ve been saved!” I’m whispering, “I get lost! That’s why I chose this way” When I say, “I am a Christian,” I don’t speak with human pride I’m confessing that I stumble-needing God to be my guide When I say, “I am a Christian,” I’m not trying to be strong I’m professing…

    Cat Bites and Form Filling

    I am going to vent in this post. So, if you don’t like me grumbling then this is where you should you leave! (But do come back)! And for those who don’t mind me grumbling… Sunday began with yet another AIMCAT. With two AIMCATs to go I will admit that I am still struggling to get the strategy correct.

    The Week So Far

    Half the week is done and today we begin November; just 18 days left before the CAT! My confidence levels have increased since I began, which is a good thing. Simultaneously my tension also seems to be increasing. While I don’t seem to be displaying it, I know subconciously it is very present. My dreams say it 🙁 Anyway, began this week with the weekly AIMCAT. This was my best AIMCAT because I made a 96.56 percentile. I’m happy that my current stratergy worked. I’ve got two more AIMCATs to go and I am going to give this a test again. Monday and Tuesday were spent completely on getting forms.…

    Sunday so far

    Sunday so far hasn’t been a very enjoyable Sunday 🙁 For one I had a very disturbed sleep and I probably know the reason why. As a result I was rather groggy early morning as I rushed for the 8.30am mass. George Burns once said: The secret of a good sermon is to have a good beginning and a good ending, and to have the two as close together as possible. Unfortunately, our priests haven’t learnt this yet. Had yet another AIMCAT today and yet again my DI went down under! 🙁 I really need to figure out how to maximize all three sections and time is running out!
