|What’s in THE MESSAGE this week?
November is an exciting time for THE MESSAGE at Rothwell Baptist Church. We are concluding our John series with 4 weeks dedicated to Jesus’ trial, death and glorious resurrection. This may seem a lot like Easter but we don’t mind because all the time is the right time to celebrate what Jesus did on the Cross. Its quite appropriate in fact to do this in the lead-up to Christmas because it reminds us that the birth of Christ is the beginning of a journey that leads ultimately to the Cross, the Resurrection and because of that, our salvation.
All of this with up to date examples and modern language, making THE MESSAGE relevant to your life today. So, come along, each Sunday in November at 6:30 PM. Everyone is welcome.
Every few years the “powers that be” add or subtract a second, to keep our standard time (measured by atomic clocks) in sync with astronomical time (e.g. rotation of the earth). Now they are thinking about stopping doing that, detaching time from the moon the stars and planets forever.
|The Mr Nice Guy of Apple
There’s been a lot of speculation about the future of Apple following the death of Steve Jobs. But the real brains behind Apple’s succession of unique products in their chief designer Jonny Ive. Jonny is British and unlike the late Mr. Jobs (who according to some, wasn’t a very nice person), is a thoroughly likable chap.
The Darker side of Apple
I was rather saddened this week when I heard that a German Café known as “Apfelkind”, is being threatened with legal action by Apple, for alleged infringement of its logo. C’mon Apple, grow-up, you didn’t invent the fruit you use as a name and logo, God did!
Its probably the case that Apple know they don’t have a leg to stand-on but the sheer financial might they can bring to bear means the café will have to back-down because they will simply be unable to afford to fight the case. Typical bullyboy tactics.
