    oh, me too, I went to a brill talk on ‘receiving’, still trying to pray about this, the basic idea was that we unconsciously pick up other people’s losses, and that it’s not helping them or us, but we can’t help doing it. the trick was to imagine the perfect support system arrived for the one yr. worrying about, and then step back. apparently this really improves your relationship with them – I’ll let you know, I’m still practising. anyway, top cartoon. cheers

  2. Me too. Feel just like that.

  3. have carried that a few times …

    Looks like Christians burden in Pilgrims Progress

    I remember over 30 years ago, the local nutter/prophet stood in the doorway of the bar and said “If you could kick the backside of the person who is the cause of all your troubles you wouldn’t sit down for a week”.

    tgf… ain’t that the truth.

    perhaps as well, we have all at times carried what we shouldn’t have?

    So you were the nervous lookng chap I saw going through customs last week! Tsk tsk. :-)

    GreatFuzzy, if I could kick the backside of the person causing my troubles, he would never sit down again.

    does anyone else get a touch impatient with the constant reminders that ‘my yolk is easy & my burdens light’?, – yes but we live in an era of economic austerity, where we all run out of cash before pay day, & 1 person is expected to complete the work that a few years back needed 2

    This morning’s radio 4 prayer for today reminded me of Jon’s cartoon.
    It ended with “What profit a man if he gains the whole world for the loss of his soul?”.

  10. Forrest says:

    Yep, Subo, yes indeed.

  11. subo says:

    oh cheers Forrest

  12. To be honest, it’s not the weight of the world that bothers me: that’s too far beyond reasoning to cause any ‘real’ problems. I struggle with the weight of the problems of those around me. That weight is just small enough to be real, and just big enough to be crippling…

    Hey subo How you doing girl? :)

  14. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    A bit quiet around here isn’t it? Everybody been Raptured?

  15. s4rahislife says:

    Hello Sagan’s Acolyte. Does he know you’re his acolyte? I should imagine he’s pleased x ;-) Su – reminders from other people yes def. most things that Jesus says should come from Jesus alone. He’s the only one free and still enough that we can hear things from without completely vomitting into our hats.

    Moi x

    Jon- love ya mate, hope all is good

  16. subo says:

    Hiya Sas, cheers for winking smiley. ach, sadly I didn’t get raptured – left behind again

  17. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Hello Sarah. No, I don’t think he knows it – he’s dead, and when people die, they tend to stay dead; your friend JC included. That is to say if Jesus ever lived at all, and without contemporary evidence – even of what would have been a ‘show’ trial for the Romans and a victory for the Jews – even that is debatable and in no way established as a fact. As it happens, the chances are that the N.T. was a collection of tales about several itinerant preachers working the area at the time, one of whom may or may not have had the name Jesu, said tales being simplified to make the stories easier to read (too many names would have made the plot too hard to follow for the semi-literate desert ramblers of the period).

    Subo, never mind. Maybe next rapture-time.

  18. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Seriously, is Jon OK?

  19. jonbirch says:

    hey there acolyte… yup, i’m fine ta!
    just been very busy and having my whole house turned over (done up)… it’s all been massive and overwhelming (i work from home too). looking great, but the price has been time for very little else except work… have to pay for the work somehow. :-)
    i’ll be back on the case shortly. hope you’re well.

  20. Laura says:

    Missing everyone here too.

  21. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    There’s a relief! Glad you’re OK.
    When I read your post just now, I thought for a second that having your house ‘turned over’ was linked to your earlier comment about carrying things you shouldn’t :-) But what cost more; the work, or the teabags, milk and sugar for the builders?

    John 3:16
    For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

  23. Laura says:

    Ok. It’s been long enough now. Come back already! (Please)
