Every time Jose Lima purchased a 6/49 lotto ticket (a Canadian lotto), he said, “If I win 6/49, big money, $5,000 for each employee, a whole trailer of chicken legs.” In March 2008, Jose won over $14 million dollars in the lotto. A week later, he was handing out free ten-pound bags of chicken to his customers, an estimated $30,000 worth of free chicken, and he gave $5,000 to all his employees and his friends. And Jose did it with a happy heart. Herod made a vow to the daughter of his wife, Herodias, when he was bewitched by her beauty and weakened by over indulgence in alcohol.
Are you paying attention? Or are you paying attention to the wrong stuff? A voice that sounds a lot like Wisdom as we met her in Proverbs begs us to learn from past experience, so as not to spend money when we can get free stuff.

And when the people pointed with oohs and ahhs towards current events, Jesus asked them to learn from the past to recognize that some things are not as significant as the eternal choices.
The government has finally woken up to the fact that the health of our children in this country is threatened by their food. For two generations, since World War II, food has become increasingly processed and the era of the fast food meal is well and truly with us.
Karen hates church. She feels it's a place where people are brainwashed. She thinks the people who go to church are weak, looking for a crutch in sermons that tell them how to behave. Karen clearly has an issue with established religion.
