Jesus Loves You, Call 416-929-1500

2008 May 13

That was the hand-written message on the bottom of the “gospel tract” [the printed page material that is needed for God’s people all around the world to fulfill His command] that I found on the streetcar. That’s not really the funny part. The funny part is that this particular tract is called The Blood and the front features a picture of a severed hand with a river of blood draining out of the wrist.

The Fellowship Tract League (a ministry of the Fellowship Baptist Church) has a website; unfortunately, the electronic version of The Blood is a lot more boring than the physical copy. So I thought I’d post some of the more interesting ones . . .

Quote of the Day

2008 May 11

“It’s called SkyDome.”

– one of the 100 Blue Jays fans asked by Toronto Life magazine ( June ’08 ) what the Rogers Centre has that is comparable to Fenway’s Green Monster or Wrigley’s ivy.

Next time I go to a Jays game, I’m taking a poster with this quote on it. By the way, I was on the JumboTron last monday!

Come On, Ride the Green Train

2008 May 11

I went to my hometown this weekend and who was on the platform beside me as I was waiting for the train to come in? Well if it wasn’t Elizabeth May, the leader of Canada’s federal Green Party! I bet Stéphane Dion and Jack Layton don’t take VIA Rail. Her partner or husband was there to see her off, which reminded me of the fact that Stephen Harper doesn’t hug his children, but rather shakes their hands.

I kind of regret not introducing myself to Ms. May. I’ve read her book “How to Save the World in Your Spare Time” and I’ve seen her speak at Queen’s University. I’ve actually seen a bunch of politicians speak live, and she was the only one who actually answered the questions she was asked in the Q & A periods. She’s very real and very interesting.

She was traveling with a fluorescent green suitcase.
