    Kinda scary. I sure wouldn’t want to be judged by a judge who placed no value on justice…

  2. Robb says:

    Wow – my lexicon is aggrandised.

    Where I come from we call them mallets and we say blergh when we get a bonk on the head from them like this!

  3. Carole says:

    I’m honoured, your Honour!

  4. TyTe says:

    Perhaps it’s time some of us started picking up our gavels and began speaking out against injustice?

  5. jonbirch says:

    i have a loud hailer, but no gavel… can i borrow yours? ;-)

  6. Linus says:

    i want a Judge who believes in both Justice and Mercy.

    I want to believe passionately and actively in both Justice and Mercy regardless of whether its my interests that are at stake or not. The best way to achieve this is to relate.

  7. TyTe says:

    I think the gavel is to get people’s attention and stop people yapping on about things – sort if like a megaphone – sure, you can borrow mine Jon…

    Ah – perfect justice and perfect mercy. Perhaps spiritual maturity is learning to embrace paradox?

  8. Forrest says:

    Why would we want to embrace a pair of ox?
    Didn’t the Israelites get in trouble with just one golden calf?

  9. Forrest says:

    but really, now getting on with things; which is truly the greater paradox –
    1. worshiping an unseen One God who is a holy trinity of perfect love, perfect justice, and perfect mercy


    2. worshiping a bunch of what amounts to claymation figures the guy in the next village made


  10. Barry says:

    For some reason, I’m reminded of this.

  11. eBookGuru says:

    I love your blog.

  12. jonbirch says:

    yes barry… whenever i think of a judge and a gavel that’s the first thing that springs to my mind too. :lol:

    ebookguru… very kind, thank you. :-)

    “Ah – perfect justice and perfect mercy. Perhaps spiritual maturity is learning to embrace paradox?” interesting point gav ‘the gavel’ tyte. it is almost an oxymoron isn’t it.? that’ll be my thought for the day. :-)

  13. jonbirch says:

    robb and barry… come to think of it… i think watching this mp sketch years ago was the first time i’d ever heard the word ‘gavel’. i’ve not used it that often since. :-)
    btw robb… i’d forgotten just how annoying timmy mallet was. when he turns to the boy and says something like “what’s wrong with you?.. it’s easy!” i want to punch him. whoever thought bringing him back for ‘i’m a celeb’ was a good idea needs a stern talking to. :-)

  14. Pat says:

    “Perhaps spiritual maturity is learning to embrace paradox?” I’d agree TyTe – I think embracing God inevitably, inextricably, means having to hold various things in tension. Part of the Christian journey is, I reckon, the slow (and sometimes painful) processes of realising this and learning how to do it :-)

  15. Robb says:

    Jon – Timmy was a kids entertainer. Perhaps we should take some calming herbs :lol:

    Just a guy providing some light relief from thattcher (or at least that is how I saw him at 12 years old!!)!!

  16. jonbirch says:

    thanks for helping me get it back in perspective robb. :lol:

  17. jody says:

    i’m not sure the holy trinity is perfect love, perfect justice, perfect mercy

    i think that ‘God is love’ has been the defining being-ness of God ~(is that a word?)

    justice and mercy are both rooted in that being of God.

    Timmy Mallett lives in the village where my kids went to nursery, needless to say that they have both been ‘malletted’ and went around singing ‘itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini’ for a few months – they’re only 5 and 7, so Timmy’s legacy lives on – Robb’s spot on, annoying as he is, the kids still love ‘im ;-)
