Letter From State

Hello howdy,
I have suscribed to your "thought
and humor" e-gazette for probably
close to 2 years now. I am an NCSU
student and faithful anti-Tarheel
:-D I was born and bred a duke fan,
go to school as a member of the pack,
can't get much more anti-Carolina
than that! I have enjoyed reading
your articals for they have alwayss
brought a smile to my face. Including
your April Fool's joke about discon-
tinuing your weekly e-mails. This past
weeks e-mail was particularly enjoyable
for me because of one of the pictures
that was in the letter. That is a picture
of Concord United Methodist Church
in McDowell County, North Carolina
where I spent the first 18 years of my
life learning about the God that you
and I both love. By the way, I'm an
Aerospace Engineering and High
School Mathematical Education
student. I hope to use the two
degrees to make high school edu
more real to life. Anyway I just
thought it was so cool to see
something from my home
(approx 240 miles west of
here) in your e-mails. I hope
to enjoy future reading.

Finding Oz


What Your Child May be Missing

Listen to the audio broadcast!

It's not much fun to perform without an audience. Toddlers believe that for
sure. Our family was having one of those rare opportunities to have all of
us together, and we were having some great conversations, keeping one eye
on our little two-year-old granddaughter. And one eye wasn't enough for her.
Using her recently enhanced motor skills, she started running wide circles
right in the middle of the room. After her first two spins - which did
manage to get our attention - she called out two little words I didn't even
know she knew - "Watch this!" We did.

Our granddaughter wanted our attention, our approval - maybe even a little
applause. She got all three. She's not unusual. All children, no matter how
old they are, need to know their mom or dad loves them and is proud of them.
It's that triple-A combination - our attention, our approval, our applause.
Sadly, far too many sons and daughters, some all grown up now, are starved
for their parent's blessing. Without it, they can make a lot of mistakes
looking in all the wrong places for what only Mom and Dad can give them.

In a number of places in the Bible, we see examples of parents giving their
children this great gift. In Genesis 49:28, for example, our word for today
from the Word of God, it speaks of Jacob and his sons: "This is what their
father said to them when he blessed them, giving each the blessing
appropriate to him." That should be going on in every family, with every
mother and father, every daughter and son. Hebrews 12:17 tells us about
a son who missed his father's blessing - Esau. It says that his whole life
"he sought the blessing with tears."

When you feel you've never really gotten your mom or dad's blessing, it
leaves a gaping hole inside. If you never got it from your parents, you know
how it feels. Well, don't pass on that deficit, that hurt to any child or
grandchild of yours. What happens when a person has this blessing deficit?
Sometimes they give up on trying to please Mom or Dad and just go entirely
the other direction where nothing is expected of them. Some will become
rebels because they never were good enough for the most important people
in their life. Others may turn hard to cover up the hurt and look like they
don't care. And some drive themselves mercilessly, even after their parent
is gone, trying to please anyone who may give them that blessing a parent
failed to give. But it will never be enough.

We bless our son or daughter when we tell them what we like about them,
what's good about them. When we compliment them on even small progress
or achievements. When we point out to them, not only their positive abilities,
but their positive qualities. Those are things you don't get awards or
grades for, but they're the things that really matter - being generous,
being unselfish, being a good listener, having good radar for people's
feelings, being a leader, being organized, being a problem-solver.

Praise what's good, regularly, specifically. Water what you want to grow,
and learn to swallow what's negative and critical and shame-producing. In
the Bible's words, "Do not let any unwholesome talk come out of your mouths,
but only what is useful for building others up, according to their needs"
(Ephesians 4:29). Don't focus on the problems and the areas that need
improving. You have such incredible power to make your son or daughter
feel either very big or very small; very secure or very insecure; very valuable

or very worthless. It's all wrapped up in "giving each the blessing
appropriate to him" or her.

And let your son or daughter know that there is a Father whose love does
not ever have to be earned. In fact, it can't be earned. God is that Father
whose unconditional love sent His Son to a cross for us - thus making
possible for each of us one love, one blessing, and one safe relationship
can always count on. We parents pride ourselves on providing for our
children all the things they need. There are few things they need more than
your blessing. Don't fail them.

Taliban Pratical Jokers


When It's Over Our Heads

When I first encountered fly-fishing as a hobby, I was overwhelmed.
Growing up a bass-fisherman, the new world of flies and tippets was like
graduating from high school to university.

Besides fish and water, everything was new to me. The rigging, the types
of rods, the back and forward casting, the matching of flies with the
hatch of the insects on the river, the waders and felt-bottomed shoes,
and the art and science of imitation and precision were all as fresh as
the first ride on a bicycle.

These categories are foreign to most readers, as it once was to me. And
as I grew from naming equipment to using equipment, and then grew
from casting to imitating hatching aquatic insects, I kept finding that no
matter how much you learn in fly-fishing, there is always a lot more to
learn. I was baffled, even discouraged at first because of so much
information. But as I grew in my learning and my practice, I was ready
for yet another step.

This, from my view, is parallel to preaching, apologetics, and youth
ministry today. I believe people are hungry to understand Christ more
deeply every day, both relationally and conceptually (terms that are
difficult to separate). There is a thrill that comes when a Scripture
passage is unpacked with sound Bible-interpretation principles. There
is a satisfaction of faith when another part of Christ's faithfulness is
revealed in a simple scene of feeding fish and bread to hungry folks.

Yet there is a constant pressure in our society, even our church
societies, to keep things simple, practical, to a reduced bare minimum.
After all, it is reasoned, if we don't speak to the lowest common
denominator, we may discourage people from being part of the church
community. While I think this a noble thought, it may actually be a
disadvantage to the healthiness of each individual believer and our church

Let me offer youth as an example. I am repeatedly amazed at how young
people respond to philosophy, theology, and spiritual formation.
They certainly do not understand all of it, but they are intrigued by
it. After walking away from a talk I gave on the role of feelings in the
spiritual life, a 13-year-old approached me. She was inching closer and
closer toward unbelief because she had a view that if Jesus were real in
her life, she would "feel" him. But after my talk she thanked me for
helping her realize that Christ is still present in her life even without
those feelings. Her face glowed. If I had been unwilling to venture into
territory that is perceived as too difficult, she may still be silently
wrestling with false beliefs. For some, it is not only helpful to talk
about Christ, but to also talk about how he meets us.

In school, youth are constantly pressured to handle new and deeper
concepts. They have to label and understand the parts of a cell. They
have to memorize names and events that lead to civil wars. Yet, we often
fall into the trap that while science and history may require depth, our
theology does not.

Our young people are looking for something to live and die for that is far
more serious than their subjects at school. Even if some of our content
soars over their heads, I believe this is all right. It lets them know
that, just like my fly-fishing, when the day comes for them to explore
their faith more diligently on their own, that there will be something
there to think about. In my journey, I have found it most assuring as
I develop as a Christian to know that there is territory beyond my reach
that I can mature into. I think our youth, indeed most people, are
looking for a church, a Scripture, a life that is bigger than their own.

"Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus," says the Apostle
Paul (Phil 2:5). There are riches to be mined from such a phrase in the
context of the epistle. How well are we giving our fellow believers
encouragement to climb to higher places with Christ? How well are we
developing our own interior life to know Christ, not just to solve our
practical problems for the moment, but to order our lives to tackle the
even harder obstacles of tomorrow? We need not be afraid that we can
exhaust the riches of understanding Christ. He is always calling us to a
deeper faith and a deeper life. Dale Fincher

A stucent needs a new computer. He wanted to know the pros
and cons of having a computer custom-built, as opposed to buying one.

Buying a locally built computer might cost a little more, Man. The big
builders have computer construction down to a science. They also can
buy parts cheaply. They purchase them by the trainload, rather than a
dozen at a time.

However, you'll probably do better locally if you need service. It's
hard to beat having someone to talk to face-to-face. Furthermore, you
won't have to worry about communicating with a foreigner. And if you
cannot resolve your issue, it's much easier to get to the owner.

Common To Man

No temptation has seized you except 

what is common to man. And God is
faithful; He will not let you be
tempted beyond what you can bear.
But when you are tempted, He will
also provide a way out so that you
can stand up under it.

Michael Newdow is at it again. The California atheist, best known for trying to get the words "under God"

English Class

Christmas Break was over and the UNC professor
asking his Sophomore English class about
their vacations.
He turned to one student and
asked what he did over
the break.

"We visited my grandmother in Punxsutawney,
Pennsylvania," he replied.

"Oh, that was great! You know, that sounds like
an excellent vocabulary word," the prof said.
"Can you tell the class how you spell that?"

The sophomore thought about it and said,

"You know, come to think of it, we just went
to Ohio."



A UNC grad goes into this local place where
bricks and cement blocks are sold, and orders
20,000 bricks. "May I ask what you're building?"
asks the man behind the counter. "Yeah, it's
going to be a barbecue."

"Wow! That's a lot of bricks for one barbecue,"
"Not really; you have to consider that I live
on the 18th floor."

It's one of the most popular convention locations in the
United States - Las Vegas. We can each guess as to what
some of the reasons for its popularity might be. But it's
become a popular destination for people other than
conventioneers. A recent advertising campaign is
offering Las Vegas as the place to go if you want to
get away with something. Using some scenes that
suggest some covert relationships and secret romantic
liaisons, the tantalizing promise that flashes across
the screen simply says: "What you do here stays
here." Wrong!

This isn't about a particular city or an advertising
campaign. It's about that dark side of all of us that
the idea of "getting away with it" appeals to.
There is this instinct in us that seems to say,
"What you do when you're alone, when you're
away from home, when you're 'off duty,' when
no one knows you, you can do it and no one
will ever know. It doesn't count." What a lie!

Hebrews 4:13, our word for today from the
Word of God, assures us that "nothing in
all creation is hidden from God's sight.
Everything is uncovered and laid bare before
the eyes of Him to whom we must give account.
" It couldn't be more blunt. God has seen it all.
And if God knows, and He does, you're caught.
Oh, the consequences, the judgment may not
come instantaneously, but be sure they will
come. In the words of Numbers 32:23, "Be
sure your sin will find you out." There's no
such thing as anonymous sin - as sin you
get away with.

What we read describes God, the great Creator
of the universe and the Creator of you, as
"Him to whom we must give account." You
will stand before God one day, and no one
knows when their appointment with God is.
There will be no excuses, no rationalizations,
no cover-ups, no plea bargains - only reckoning.
What you think is a secret is not a secret with
the only One who really matters. Romans 2:16
says, "God will judge men's secrets through
Jesus Christ" (Romans 2:16). Maybe you've
fooled everyone. You can't fool Him.

The thought of facing the judgment of the
God against whom we've all rebelled is nothing
short of terrifying. As the Bible says, "It is a
dreadful thing to fall into the hands of the living
God" (Hebrews 10:31). But the amazing good news
Jesus brought is that you and I don't have to pay
the awful, eternal death penalty for our sin.
Someone already did. Jesus did. In the words
of the Bible, "He loved us and sent His Son
as an atoning sacrifice for our sins" (1 John 4:10).
Imagine - God's love for you is so great that
He poured the hell for your sin against Him
on His own Son so you would never have
to pay for it yourself. So you could spend
eternity in the heaven that you could never
deserve rather than the hell you do deserve.
He really, really loves you. He went a long
way to forgive you.

But you have to first face your sin and see
it for what it is - the defiant hijacking of your
life from the God who made you. Then you
have to decide you're ready to turn from the
sin that killed Him and place your life in His
hands. Which is where you were created to
be anyway. And the weight of a lifetime of
sinning and secrets and darkness can come
off your shoulders this very day because,
as the Bible says, "The blood of Jesus His
Son, purifies us from all sin" (1 John 1:7).
He is alive today. You can tell Him right
now, "Jesus, Your death for my sin is my
only hope and I am Yours." If that's what
you want, let me send you my booklet
about beginning with Him. It's called
Yours For Life. Just let me know you want it.

This can be the day of your new beginning -
when God's spiritual shower makes you
clean and every sin of your life is erased
from His book forever - your judgment

Patient's Hand On The Doorknob

The "doorknob phenomenon" is an occurrence many
physicians know well. Doctors can proceed meticulously
through complete examinations and medical histories
with their patients, but it is often in the last thirty seconds
of the appointment that the most helpful information
is revealed. When a patient's hand is on the doorknob,
body halfway out the door, vital inquiries seem to be
made; crucial information is shared almost in passing.
Many have speculated as to the reasons behind the
doorknob phenomenon (which is perhaps not limited
to the field of medicine), though a cure seems unlikely.
Until then, words uttered on the threshold remain
a valuable entity to the physician.

If I were to speak on behalf of the patient (and perhaps
I've been a perpetrator of the phenomenon myself),
I would note that the doorknob marks his last chance
to be heard. Whatever the reason for not speaking
up until that point-fear, discomfort, shame, or denial-
he knows the criticalness of that moment. In thirty
seconds, he will no longer be in the presence of one
who offers healing. At the threshold between doctor's
office and daily life, the right words are imperative;
time is of essence.

I wonder if there is such a threshold as we stand
before the Great Physician. There are times in
prayer where it might feel as if we are moving
down the sterile list of conditions and information.
Work. Finances. Mom. Jack. Future. And where
bringing God in prayer our laundry list of concerns
with repeated perseverance is both necessary and
helpful, perhaps there are times when we have
silenced the greater diagnosis with the words
we have chosen to leave unspoken. Can
a physician heal wounds we will not show,
symptoms we will not mention?

Thankfully, God can and does heal wounds
we can't even articulate. But choosing to
leave out of our prayers the toxic symptoms
of worry and anxiousness hardly shows our
prayer sincere for God's will to be done.
How can He begin the work that needs
to be done in our heart when we refuse
to come near the operating table? Is
there a cure for those who don't seek it?

"Is there no balm in Gilead?" the prophet
Jeremiah once cried. "Is there no physician
there? No healing for the wound of my people?"
Jeremiah lived during one of the most trouble
some periods of Hebrew history. And he
stood on the threshold between a people
sick with rebellion and the great Physician
to whom they refused to cry out in honesty.

"I have listened attentively," the LORD
declared, "but they do not say what is
right. No one repents of his wickedness,
saying, 'What have I done?' Each pursues
his own course like a horse charging into
battle" (Jeremiah 8:6). His words are
weighted with behavior I recognize.
A patient who complains of a cough
while a fatal wound is bleeding will
neither find respite for the cough
nor her unspoken pain; a good
physician would not treat the
cough until the bleeding has
been stopped.

In Jeremiah's day as in our own,
the promise of a painless remedy
was not left unspoken. Of these
prophets of deceit God uttered,
"They dress the wound of my
people as though it were not
serious. 'Peace, peace,' they
say, when there is no peace"
(8:11). Their promises are easy
to stand beside but crumble under
the weight of us. To stand in honesty
before the Great Physician is more difficult.
It is to admit we need to be made well,
however painful the remedy or costly
the cure.

The great hymn places before us
a powerful resolution:

No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the ground
He comes to make His blessing flow
Far as the curse is found,
Far as the curse is found.

The woundedness of humanity is serious.
It cannot be bandaged as anything less
than a mortal wound. Let us not wait until
we've reached the threshold of life and
death to address the indications of our
illness. But let us in hope and honesty
come into the presence of one who imparts
healing. In the coming of Christ, God
offers a cure that extends as far as the
wound has festered. Jill Carattini

Taskbar & Windows On Your Computer

The taskbar is located on your desktop, the opening screen after
Windows has booted up. The taskbar is usually located at the bottom
of the screen. It includes the Start button.

The taskbar's usual location is strictly a matter of convention.
You can move it to either side of the desktop, or to the top. Put
the cursor on it, depress the left mouse key, and drag it. If it won't
move, it is probably locked. Right-click the taskbar. If "Lock the
Taskbar" is checked, click it.

There are other settings, too. For instance, you can keep it visible
when other windows are open. That way you have immediate access to
everything that is open. Those documents are visible in the
taskbar. To keep the taskbar available, right-click it and click
Properties. Check "Keep the taskbar on top of other windows."

You also can make the taskbar disappear. Again, right-click it and
click Properties. Select "Auto-hide the taskbar." When your cursor is
not on the taskbar, it will slide off the screen. To make it reappear,
go to the desktop and move the cursor as far to the edge as it will go.

Once you optimize the taskbar, lock it. To do that, right-click it
and select Properties. Click "Lock the taskbar."

You're not alone. Here's a tip about how to get it back:

Put the notification icon on the taskbar. Here's how to do that:


Matching the iPod and Windows

Matching the iPod and Windows

Although Apple's iPod and iPod mini has a huge fan base, using it is
not an entirely glitch-free Windows experience. Older versions of
Windows are incompatible and there are some peculiar default settings
that could wipe out your music collection. But for every problem, there
is a work-around.

Here are four tips and tricks for using your iPod.

1. Have the right Windows version. iTunes, the program that transfers
music to the iPod from your computer, only runs on Windows XP and 2000.

But Windows 98SE and ME owners can still use their iPod through third-
party software. XPlay (http://www.mediafour.com; $30) and Anapod
Explorer (http://www.redchairsoftware.com; $25) are two better-known
programs that transfer music files onto iPods.

XPlay requires a FireWire port, which is often missing on Windows
computers. So, you'll have to buy and install one. FireWire cards start
at $20. Anapod Explorer can transfer music to your iPod using either a
USB or FireWire port.

You're out of luck if your Windows is older than Windows 98SE.

2. Get the music. Your music files must be on your computer before they
can be transferred to your iPod. And the files must be in the proper
format. The iPod plays many different formats, including AAC (Advanced
Audio Coding), MP3 and WAV.

Unless you are using Windows 98SE or ME, forget third-party software
and stick with iTunes to get your music files into the proper format.
iTunes lets you change the format and amount of compression it uses
when importing music. To do this within iTunes, click Edit>>Preferences
and select the Importing tab.

To get music from a CD onto your hard drive, insert the CD in your
computer. iTunes will look up the CD title and song information through
an online database and display it. Remove the check next to any song
you don't want and click the Import button.

If online information is not available, enter the information manually.
Click the track. Then select File>>Get Info and click on the Info tab.
Enter the title, artist and other information. Clear the boxes for
tracks you do not want.

You also can purchase music through the iTunes Music Store. Click on
Music Store under Source. Singles cost 99 cents. Often you can save a
few bucks by purchasing an entire album. The iTunes Music Store, like
the iTunes jukebox, requires Windows XP and 2000.

3. Organize it. Depending on the size of your iPod's hard drive and the
amount of compression, you could end up with thousands of songs.

So, create playlists. Use them to organize songs by theme, genre or any
other category.

To create a playlist, select File>>New Playlist. Type a name for the
playlist under Source. Click Library to view your song files. Drag any
song onto the playlist. Select multiple songs by holding the Control or
Shift key while clicking.

4. Transfer it. With iTunes open, connect your iPod to your computer.
iTunes will automatically transfer songs and playlists to your iPod.

But be careful. Anything on the iPod, but not in iTunes, will be
erased. To avoid that, set iTunes to only transfer certain songs.
Or, you can manually drag and drop music files onto your iPod.

To change the settings, open iTunes and select Edit>>Preferences. Click
the iPod tab. Click the Music tab and make sure "Automatically update
all songs and playlists" is selected. Then click the Advanced tab and
select the "Only update checked songs" checkbox.

To manually transfer songs, choose Edit>>Preferences and click the iPod
tab. Click the Music tab and select "Manually manage songs and
playlists." Then drag songs from your library or playlist to iPod
in the Source list.

A Faster & Free Browser

Two new Internet Explorer flaws announced by a security company
recently. You should consider a switch to Firefox.

The descriptions of these flaws are difficult to understand. Basically,
they allow you to download dangerous files without a warning from
Windows. The warning feature is part of Service Pack 2.

So, should you switch to Firefox? Kim Komando has & so has
Howdy. I think it is a better and faster browser, and a safer one. It's
available free at: http://www.mozilla.org/

Tsunami Aide & Muslims

It’s interesting to see what various countries are giving.
Japan, being in Asia understandably, is giving the largest
amount of state aid, pledging $500 million. The United States
is second with $350 million (not to mention the many millions
that private donors are giving plus millions spent by our
military). And while our carping critics in Europe immediately
jumped on America for being so timid in coming up with im-
mediate funds, Germany, one of the great industrial powers
of the world, is giving about $25 million, or 7 percent of the
U.S. total.

I also find it noteworthy that of the top ten countries, none is
a Muslim nation. Just yesterday, Saudi Arabia agreed, after
much public criticism, to triple its originally pledged $10 million.
Kuwait, a country that ran an unexpected $10 billion dollar
surplus this year, also pledged $10 million—please. Since
Indonesia, the country hardest hit by the tsunami, has
the world’s largest Muslim population, it’s ironic and
sad that these oil-rich nations are so reluctant to part
with the riches that enable their leaders to live as kings
and princes—even for fellow Muslims. By contrast,
America with its Christian heritage is giving generously
to non-Christian nations.

But, you see, this is a pattern. In numerous crises, America,
the beacon of hope to the world, has sent its troops into
harm’s way to save persecuted Muslims. It happened in
Bosnia, Albania, Kuwait, Afghanistan, in African nations,
and is happening today in Iraq. But I have yet to see
a case where a Muslim country has tried to help a Christian

This speaks volumes about the worldviews of Christian
and Muslim nations and the way we carry out our religious
convictions. Right now there is a raging debate going on in
Kuwait over whether more individuals should be giving
charitable assistance to the people in southeast Asia. Some
leaders in Kuwait are arguing that the government has an
obligation to give more to southeast Asia because most
of the country’s 1.3 million foreigners come from that region.
They are the servants and the nannies and housemaids for
the Kuwaiti rich. Editorials in Kuwait are even suggesting
that it really is all right for Muslims to give aid to non-
Muslims—a subject of hot debate in the Middle East.

What happened in southeast Asia is a terrible tragedy,
and we should grieve with the suffering people and help
them. But this is also an apologetic opportunity: Let the
world see the kind of compassion we have for all people,
not just fellow Christians. At the same time, the world
can plainly see the limitations of a religion like Islam—
theocratic, closed, indifferent, and unconcerned about
the needs of others, even in its own Muslim family.

Verse of the Day

* * * Four important things to KNOW: #1) For ALL (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) have sinned & fall short of the glory of God. #2) For the wages of above (see #1) are DEATH (Hell, eternal separation from God, & damnation) but the Gift (free & at no charge to you) of God (Creator, Jehovah, & Trinity) is Eternal Life (Heaven) through (in union with) Jesus Christ (God, Lord, 2nd Person of The Trinity, Messiah, Prince of Peace & Savior of the World). #3) For God so greatly loved & dearly prized the world (Americans, Muslims, Jews, Catholics, Hindus, Buddhist, Asians, Presbyterians, Europeans, Baptist, Brazilians, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc.) that He even gave up His only begotten (unique) Son, that whosoever (anyone, anywhere, anytime - while still living) believes (trust in, relies on, clings to, depends completely on) Him shall have eternal (everlasting) life (heaven). #4) Jesus said: "I am THE WAY, THE TRUTH, & THE LIFE. No one (male/female - American, Muslim, Jew, Catholic, Hindu, Buddhist, Asian, Presbyterian, European, Baptist, Brazilian, Mormons, Methodist, French, etc. ) comes (arrives) to the Father (with GOD in Heaven) EXCEPT BY (through) ME (no other name). *** This wonderful loving GOD gives you the choice - - - (Rev. 3:20) {Please note that church membership, baptism, doing good things, etc. are not requirements for becoming a Christian - however they are great afterwards!!!} *** Jesus said, "Wide is the gate and broad is the road that leads to destruction (Hell, damnation, eternal punishment), and many enter through it. But small is the gate and narrow the road that leads to life (Heaven, eternal happiness, forever with God), and only a few find it.

D I S C L A I M E R If someone should ask if it's legal to download songs
found on various non-commercial sites, such as this one.

Well, I'm neither a lawyer nor a technician,
and I've begun to wonder if it was legal for
us to tape music off the radio back when
tape recorders first came into being.

And were we committing a crime when we recorded
a movie shown on TV with our VCRs? And was it
really legal to buy a dual-deck recorder for the
express purpose of duplicating cassettes?

My answer to all of the above is, "I don't know."

Nonetheless, here is a formal statement in
some kind of legalize that appears to apply
to this kind of file availability:
