There are times for privacy, especially in charitable sector

A church I once served did a building project to make the church accessible.

It was no easy task.

The building was historic; there were some unique architectural details to be considered.

And then there was the pipe organ. Pipe organs and construction do not go well together. At all.

Running alongside all of this engineering work was the fundraising. And it was a major task. The total project cost was well into six figures.

We did everything; government grants, fundraisers and, of course, pledges from church members and the community.

What attitudes would Homeless Jesus reveal?

Last fall I told you about a statue in Toronto, at Regis College, called “Homeless Jesus”. It’s a life sized bronze statue of a man laying on a park bench wrapped in a blanket. The only way you might gain a clue to his identity is that his hands and feet are pierced, as Christ’s were on the cross.

Church gun giveaway wrong a couple of ways

So a Baptist church in the American state of Kentucky is giving away guns as door prizes in hopes of attracting more converts to Jesus Christ.

Can someone tell me what’s wrong with that?

Over the years I have seen many inducements used by churches to bring people into their buildings. I have seen magicians, balloon and aeroplane rides. I have seen food used as attractant. And I have seen giveaways of all kinds from pens to iPods. But I have never heard or seen of guns used in this way.

American Idol sees role for chaplain on show

I admit to being an occasional fan of American Idol. The spring and summer season talent contest brings out both the best and the worst in entertainment. The audition shows are filled with the truly awful, unintentionally horrible and, through the skill of editing, some raw, uncut gems of singers who move on to the final 31 and then final 13.

It all comes down to one last show where the top of the group compete. Some are completely forgettable.

Others have gone on to respectable careers in the entertainment industry.
