Where are we all going?

What is Church About?

The iPhone Case

I have something to confess. I might love my new iPhone case, just a little bit. (I’ve been known to understate my feelings). You see, my little 7 month old has certain feelings towards my iPhone.

She see’s it.

She wants to eat it!

And. Well. In an attempt to love my daughter more then the phone, I checked my insurance, and let her get on with trying to suck it. (Thankfully she currently is minus teeth). But when she started on the corner of the phone that had the camera lens, then myself and the Good lady wife started to get worried, and she commented about the survival case from Griffin.

After some pondering, I got it ordered from Amazon, introduced the case to my phone… When the little one decided to try eating it again, I was a little bit more relaxed about the whole, baby – eating – iPhone, thing.

Where are we now?

The great thing about me being relaxed with her holding it / playing with it, is I just get back to lean back, and keep half an eye one what she’s doing. Well I don’t want her to delete my email just because of some unlucky hand moves. As I was sat there, watching Doctor Who on the phone that she was holding, it occurred to me. My child was watching a TV show on a phone that she was holding in her hand. Maybe I had a moment of feeling old, but I couldn’t help but wonder where we’re going with Technology. The millennial generation have seen a move from tube based TVs, landlines, and VCRs. We’re now in a world of HD TVs, smart phones, and iPlayer.

Have you seen the stuff about Google Glass?

Where are we Going?

If we’re starting to talk about Google Glass now, what will we be talking about in 30 years time?

I guess I wonder where we’re going with all of this?

Deuteronomy ends with the death of Moses:
10 Since then, no prophet has risen in Israel like Moses, whom the Lord knew face to face, 11 who did all those signs and wonders the Lord sent him to do in Egypt—to Pharaoh and to all his officials and to his whole land. 12 For no one has ever shown the mighty power or performed the awesome deeds that Moses did in the sight of all Israel.
Deuteronomy 34

Strong words. What did the Isrealites feel about the death of their leader? Did the Israelites wonder what was going to happen? I want to say that they put their trust in God, and words such as, “The Lord himself goes before you and will be with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you. Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged.” from chapter 31.

But did at least some of them wonder where they were also going?

If you’re wondering where you’re going in your future, then you may find this prayer helpful.

“Father God, I realise that You have set an appointed time for everything, and I may not necessarily know when it will come or how it will happen. I choose to remain expectant & trust that You will bring my breakthrough no matter how long it takes. Amen”

A version of this first featured on the Big Bible website.

Should there be more discussion about how technology and Social Media is used?
In a world where it seems that everyone has a Facebook account, should more be done to educate people about behavior online, and how?
Do you have any concerns about where technology is heading?

Blatant Plug of The Month


Back in the mists of time, when I announced that “mini sofa” would be joining us in the world, I also announced that there may be a certain amount of children / kid focus around here. (I think I said it would be called “Dads Corner”). That never really happened.

Instead, The Little Southern Dad blog was born. Its a general collection of stuff n’ gubbins about parenting, babies, beer, lego, and Doctor Who.
All the important stuff in life.

Please check it out!

Dear “Bob”.

Dear “Bob”.

First of all, I’m sorry for using the name Bob. I’m expecting to be VERY busy after you’re born, and because I’m typing this beforehand, I don’t want to accidentally announce your name to everyone else first before I get to introduce myself to you first.

I just want to explain, why you already have a website.

Quite simply. Before you were born, you were already loved by a lot of people. And a lot of these people will really enjoy watching you grow up. Now when some people can just go on Facebook, other people don’t have a Facebook account.

So I’ve set up a little website for you, it’s a little bit like a diary, so granny’s and Grandads and other people can see what you’ve been getting up.

Don’t worry. I’ll help you run it.

See you soon


PS. I almost forgot, your website can be found at myfirstyear.me.uk
I hope you like it.
