I haven't been writing as much as usual because I've been reading more blogs than usual. In the past few days there has been some interesting blogging about Brian McLaren and the Emergent Church (see Coloratura Christian's reflections of hearing him, Cowboyology posts an interesting poem, kerux noemata shares his recent research paper on his new Emergent-dedicated blog).
In keeping with the focus of this blog, I will not enter into such discussion in this forum - although I encourage all Christians to familiarize themselves with what's being sold in the Christian bookstores as the "latest" trend in Christian literature. We need to be careful and remember 1 John 4:1, "Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world. This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God."
I encourage each of you to be examining for yourself, what is being purported as "christian". These are not bandwagons to be jumped on, like when we suddenly watch hockey just because our Calgary Flames are in the play-offs. These are sometimes battlefronts for the soul. And in those cases, it really does matter what side we are on - and we'd better know what side we're on.
Anyway, I was just gonna share a quick recipe that I "invented" last night, which my son said I should post. (This is more like what 'homemaker' is all about :)) We've called it "Tasty Juice". It uses frozen watermelon. I had purchased too much watermelon for us to consume last September, and decided to cut it and freeze it. Just found it buried in my freezer yesterday and thus we have the discovery of "Tasty Juice".
750 ml of frozen watermelon
1 cup or so of white grape juice
Blend and serve like a slushie.
Easy, healthy, fun and 'tasty'. Enjoy!
