Ogilvie Late Night - Joy and Suffering

Joy is made manifest only through Christ and if you are trying to acquire it in any other way, you will continually experience the disgrace of empty depression.  That is the great reversal my friends.  We would like to believe that it is the comforts of life that bring joy.  We would like to believe that it is pleasant circumstances that bring joy.  We would like it to be great purchases bought with our own hard labor that brings us joy.  But it is not. These are merely momentary glimpses of happiness, that once subsided, prove even more that our joy is not complete.  The hole widens, the eager expectation increases, and the fervent search for greater hope results.   It is only through the Gospel of Christ that true joy is experienced.  Joy that lifts beyond our circumstances, that can see the greater playing field of life, the larger goal and purpose of living and see that no matter what may rise against us, we can place our hope, our very trust in the God who graces us with suffering.  (Read Philippians 1:12-30)

Apple Special Event & The iPad 2

I'm only half way though this video where Steve Jobs releases the iPad2 and I have to say, Apple is amazing! They are amazing not just because the put out great products that are cool, clean, sleek and extremely usable, but because these products are actually changing the way people live, work and produce. The iPad is helping children learn, the disabled function, doctors spend more time with patients and many more things. Watch this video and talk a look at how Steve Jobs and the whole apple team are changing the world. And for those of you who pray - pray for Steve's health. You'll see what I mean in the video.
