    Israel attacks U.S.

    Um, no. You really don't get it much clearer than 'the 12 tribes of the children of Israel'. To try to interpret that any other way is willful ignorance.

    Israel attacks U.S.

    Wow, you must be really old! (sorry, sorry, couldn't resist!) These statements seriously conflate believing Israel with the unbelieving Jews. Don't forget that: "...the gifts & calling of God are without repentance." (Romans 11:29) Scripture must also be studied and considered as a whole. Don't forget Who among those mentioned in Revelation is also a Jew (Revelation 5:5). This may be a bit snarky (it's been one of those days at work!), but notice the only earth city whose name survives into the New Earth. It's not New York or Washington. "And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband... And he carried me away in the spirit to a great and high mountain, and shewed me that great city, the holy Jerusalem, descending out of heaven from God, Having the glory of God: and her light was like unto a stone most precious, even like a jasper stone, clear as crystal; And had a wall great and high, and had twelve gates, and at the gates twelve angels, and names written thereon, which are the names of the twelve tribes of the children of Israel:" (Rev. 21:2,10-12)

    Emerging Church

    https://www.lighthousetrailsresearch.com/blog/?s=emerging+church Also take a look at the Lighthouse Trails' articles on Contemplative Spirituality - the two are very closely entwined.

    Major changes

    I’d missed this before! How exciting! I’ll definitely be praying for you and your plans here.

    Seeking Christian School Teachers

    Shared this with a couple of friends that are graduating soon as Christian school teachers. Thanks!

    Happy Mother's Day (in Australia)

    All that about the Teas is very interesting. It makes me laugh because, in Canada, we are familiar with the historic British idea of an afternoon tea, but we have it backwards. Historic sites will often serve High Tea - with fancy cakes & teacups at nice hotels/mansions. Very expensive & fancy - and apparently not High Tea at all!! I wonder if it's only us moderns who are confused, or whether the early 20th century upper class Canadians continued the Low Tea tradition but changed the name to make it sound fancier.

    Whats for Supper...

    Hmm... now that I think about it, I guess I might have had them both ways. For picnics they're usually cold, and you don't see them served much outside of picnics. I don't care for them much so don't eat them often.

    Apparently in Britain they serve baked beans for breakfast - is that right, Invicta? Seems weird... over here they're a summer picnic favourite and served cold (preferably with potato salad).

    Wendy's Taco Salad. I seem to have that a lot... :-P

    I ordered that one! One of the authors is the fellow giving the tour. You really know your publications. :-)

    You'll definitely see them on FB! ;-)

    Re Invicta's question about when I'll be in London: May 19-20, and June 5-7. In between will be Coniston (Cumbria) & Keswick, hiking along Hadrian's Wall in Northumberland, York, Conwy, Glyn Ceiriog (north Wales), and Bath. I can't wait! So much history to see, everywhere! I was able to get in contact with a Creation Science Group out of Rugby; going to join them the afternoon I arrive for a guided tour of the Biblical artifacts in the British Museum. I'm fairly excited about that. It'll be good to make contact with a group of Christians right away. Might help mitigate the shock of landing in a strange country, by myself, on the wrong side of the ocean. I'm also planning to visit Smithfield (site of a number of London martyrdoms), Bunhill Fields, and the Wesley/Methodist Museum in London.

    I'm going to jump over to my old England thread to answer you. My response was getting too long for here. :-)
