The Chiefs, Chaos and Dignity

Way,way back when, the Kaiser Chiefs managed to launch themselves to stardom with a little tune called “I predict a riot”. It was a little bit of a smash hit, with people singing it left right and centre…
Maybe we should have seen this coming

I came home from a great evening out last night, to see images of my university city burning.

To be honest I’m not sure exactly whats gone wrong, but I do know that something isn’t going right.

This guys speech seems to sum it up for me, and all credit to him:

#prayforLondon on Twitter

Not sure what Twitter, but you’ve heard  it mentioned on the news recently?

Well Twitter describes itself as:

Social networking and microblogging service utilising instant messaging, SMS or a web interface.

Basically people make a comment about what they are thinking, saying, or doing, in 140 characters or less. One advantage of the Twitter network is that people can find out what other people are saying, to the extent that particular phrases (if used often enough), become “trending topics”. The Trending Topics can illustrate what people are talking about in regards to world events.

For example. #londonriots become a popular hashtag which people used to monitor the events…

Currently the most popular topic to talk about in the Twitter world is #prayforLondon. Therefore more people are currently saying #prayforLondon then any other string of words on Twitter.

Evidence of people uniting?  Evidence of people looking for the positive?

Whats your take on the #prayforLondon hashtag?

What is “The Code”?

Well according to Christian Today:

The Ten Commandments are for every Christian but the UK’s largest Christian men’s movement has just released a brand new code to inspire men in particular to follow Jesus in every area of their lives.

The 12-point code commits Christian men to unashamedly making Jesus known through their words and actions, and to putting the welfare of others before their own.

It also asks that they honour their leaders and take care of their health, as well as the environment.

Based on comments from Jon Butler, and other sites I ended up tracking a copy of this down from Amazon. The book itself expounds on The Code which is:

 

I Jesus is my Captain, Brother, Rescuer and Friend.

II I owe everything to Him. I will do anything for Him.

III I will unashamedly make Him known through my actions and words.

IV I will not cheat in anything, personal or professional.

V I will look away from the gutter, but be prepared to pull people out of it.

VI I will keep my body fit and free from any addictions.

VII I will put the welfare of those closest to me before my own welfare.

VIII I will treat all men and women as brothers and sisters.

IX I will lead as He would lead. I will honour my leaders provided this also honours Him. I will follow Him in company with my sisters and brothers

X I will use my strength to protect the weak and stand against the abuse of power

XI I will protect the world that God has made.

XII If I fail I will not give up. He never gives up on me.

I’m already blown away by the truth that is number 1. I’ll admit I’ve not finished this yet, but I’ve read enough already to suggest that this is worth getting your hands on.

Weekly Round Up – The #retrogames Edition

Welcome to this weeks roundup:

Want To Help Build Noah’s Ark?

 

Want to help Noah get his Ark built?

Want to help get all the animals together, and ensure they don’t starve?

Now you can with thanks to the Noah’s Ark game on Facebook, according to the Making Fun Games website:

Play the game based on the well-known story of Noah’s Ark. Help Noah and his family prepare before the flood arrives. Attract, feed, and take care of cute animals, plant and harvest crops, and chop wood that will be used to build the ark. The game is suitable for players of all ages and levels.

So its just like Farmville then?

Cant help but compare this a little to ChristianChirp – the Christian alternative to Twitter… But I suppose at least you have to be part of Facebook to play.
