Spiritual Stewardship
A wise man once wrote that if Christians were properly using their stewardship over the earth, World War One and Two wouldn't have happened. This is a subject that I feel strongly about: "The Spiritual Stewardship Over Planet Earth."

The diseases of cancer, aids and other illnesses still ravage many. While the rich get richer, much of the world lives in poverty including children who are often exploited and harmed.

The power of money and destructive force are worshipped by those of different creeds and nationalities.

Mankind is often at the mercy of violent weather, criminals and terrorists.

The belief in guardian angels and other kinds of angels is part of our inherited spiritual knowledge that we can function better as spiritual beings than as human beings(United together in a common purpose).

We don't have to die to become a guardian angel. We can leave our bodies while sleeping or through spiritual exercises and do the jobs that need to be done (e.g. The healing of disease, the protection of children, the control of weather conditions and the fight against evil). These issues can be directly handled on a team basis in the spiritual world. As the apostle Paul stated "For the weapons of our warfare are not carnal, but mighty through God to the pulling down of strongholds (2 Cor. 10:4)".

Christians can't escape the responsibilities of stewardship towards humanity("To whom much is given will much be expected"). The time to start operating on a spiritual level is now("Thy Kingdom come, on earth as it is in heaven").

More Thoughts And Pictures Of Newfoundland
I enjoy the rugged beauty of Newfoundland's coast line and the friendliness of its citizens. However, I'm somewhat less enthusiastic about marathon card games, sing-a-longs, funerals and blizzards.

All in all a visit to Newfoundland is a memorable and out of the ordinary experience.

Our Departure From Newfoundland
Can you imagine getting caught in a blizzard in late April when travelling to St. John's airport? Yes, that's what happened to Irene and I in the early hours of Apr/25/04. So much snow, we didn't know whether we were on the road or not. We should have taken along a dogsled and an eskimo guide.

A Short Newfoundland Vacation
Mood:  hug me
Tomorrow, Irene and I are leaving for Newfoundland from the Toronto(Pearson)airport. This is just for five days. It'll be the first time we've been there in five years. Irene is looking forward to visiting her mother who is in the hospital. Her family(five brothers and their wives)will get together on Saturday and sing Newfoundland folk songs until 4:00 A.M.. This is a tradition I don't relish. But all things considered, it's a nice place to visit, but I wouldn't want to stay there.

Below is the house in Spaniard's Bay where Irene lived in her childhood. Her older brother, Clarence, now lives there.

Religious Article Of The Week
There are religious scholars that I admire who just didn't accept everything they were taught about certain religions(e.g. Christianity).

Tom Harper is one of them who writes about unorthodox subjects in his Toronto Star religious column. Here is one of his controversial statements from the title article: "The greatest duplicity lies in the fact that when the Church needed some meaty intellectual tonic in the Middle Ages, it turned to two Pagans, Plato and Aristotle. It was to Aristotle especially, the pupil of Plato, that St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) looked for the theology that was to shape his own church down to today!"

New Age Christianity didn't start with me. There were many seekers in the past who wanted a deeper understanding of "Man, Myth and Religion". Simply accepting church creeds and dogma wasn't enough.

Movie Review 67: The Missing
Mood:  down
This film meanders over Arizona like the heroine and her father who are tracking down renegade Indians who have kidnapped their daughter/granddaughter. The main focus seems to be either the scenery or dead bodies that are brutally murdered. Hardly pleasant stuff and the long, long, long chase of the bad guys over John Wayne territory is just plain boring. One star.

Film Reviews Of The Week
Mood:  a-ok
These reviews are from Toronto Star columnist, Peter Howell. He has such a good way with words when he hates a picture with a passion. Here is a sample of his review on "Masked And Anonymous": "Everyone was so generous that it wound up being an incredible communal experience and actually a spiritual experience," Charles says on the DVD. "It was a process without any desired results." Here's my translation of that: "The movie had no form or focus whatsoever and it died like a dog, but the cast parties were fantastic."

He attacks actors, directors and screenwriters who seem to be in love with their own works.

More 21st Century Jesus
Jesus and Bill Gates decided one day to see who was the best computer programmer. So they decided to have a timed contest with Donald Trump as the referee. They had one day to come up with a killer app. They both got to work and were coding at a furious pace. In the last five minutes they were nearly done when--POOF!--there's a power surge, and both computers lose power. Gates panics, and sure enough, when the computer comes back up, there's no sign of his code. But Jesus manages to compile and run his program at the last possible moment. Gates is furious and screams, "He cheated! How could he possibly have done that?!?" Trump smiles and says..."Jesus saves, and you're fired."

A Meeting Place For Spirits, Humans And Aliens
There should be a safe place where humans can meet spirits and aliens without the fear that they may get eaten or have their brains scrambled.

I believe there is such a place in Arizona called Katimavik. There's no reason why life forms of good will can't meet together and learn something from each other even if past encounters have been a failure.

What do you think?
