I have been got: Turbulent Cleric: Tagged – 4 Things.
Oh good Pam has saved me writing a blog entry about Wednesday evening PamBG’s Blog: Fresh Expressions / Changing Church?.
It was a good evening, the DVD is being ordered and I will be pushing for more action in this area. The stats are scary. 60% of the population can’t connect with traditional ways of being church, that means all the variety of worship styles that cause so much tension still only widen the spectrum to 40% of the population.
Action, this day: well not today, it’s my day off
This Ingredients to the Pylons Python Web Framework demonstrates nicely why all python web frameworks should be based on WSGI now (not nice to have in the future but needed now). RhubarbTart is another good example of the advantages of building on WSGI (and specifically both these use PythonPaste).
An alternative example is httpy — a sane and robust HTTP library for Python which does indeed look sane and have some neat features, but surely now is the wrong time to launch something that aims to compete with WSGI. In fact I suspect that httpy would fit easily under wsgi, in the process allowing some code to be dropped. Essentially all httpy needs is a wsgi coupler (in its own terminology).
There has been a sudden rush of interesting posts around the subject of Bible Translation, mostly focusing on the TNIV and ESV translations and moving beyond just the gender issue.
[Disclaimer] I have not watched anything of these Winter Olympics.
However, it seems to me that the responses we see Lindsey make in NBCOlympics.com – Women’s Snowboard Cross – Snowboard culture shares blame with Lindsey are a great example of how we should respond to the issues I raised in 42: ongoing: Blasphemy.
Amusingly the comments include many "Yes but it does not apply to the European country where I live".
IMHO if this is what it takes to bring some sense of equality around the world it would be a price worth paying. But is that equality coming? Are we seeing new economies with justice for all? Or is this all about greed and excess?
"We lament with special anguish the war in Iraq, launched with deception and violating global norms of justice and human rights."
That is one good response to my earlier post ongoing: Blasphemy.
