Why AT&T Is Stupid! (Part 2)

Posted: July 3, 2008 in Everything

Check this: An iPhone at a discounted rate may still be available for me since I’m a graduate student at ACU – the first university in the world to integrate and incorporate iPhone into learning. My problem? The phone I have now is 3G phone, I think, so I may not be elegible still.

Anyway, if you thought I was over the top in saying that AT&T is stupid, check this out. I would come out $25 cheaper if I were to break my current contract, pay the penalty, open a new line of service, complete with activation fees, and purchase the 16g iPhone 3G ($299). Can you believe that? Apparently, there is NO ONE at AT&T that can do math.

Salvation

Once again a prayer from Walter Brueggeman’s Prayers for a Privileged People.

Salvation Oracles (On reading Isaiah 43.1-5)

There is a long list of threats around us:

terror,

cancer,

falling markets,

killing,

others unlike us in all their variety,

loneliness,

shame,

death —

the list goes on and we know it well.

And in the midst of threat of every kind,

you appear among us in your full power,

in your deep fidelity

in your amazing compassion.

You speak among us the one word that could matter:

“Do not fear.”

And we, in our several fearfulness, are jarred by your utterance.

On a good day, we know that your sovereign word is true.

So give us good days by your rule,

free enough to rejoice,

open enough to change,

trusting enough to move out of new obedience,

grace enough to be forgiven and then to forgive.

We live by your word. Speak it to us through the night,

that we may have many good days through your gift.

5 Things I Think I Think.

Borrowing again from sportswriter Peter King, here are 5 Things I Think I Think.

1. Scot McKnight’s Jesus Creed blog has the best take on the Dobson/Obama biblical debate. Check it out here.

2. The most nervous person in the world yesterday was Tiger Woods’ knee surgeon. Can you say “Billion Dollar Knee?”

3. Nothing fun happens in late June concerning sports or politics, thank goodness for a rapping Shaquille O’Neal.

4. Don Imus: This time is much worse than the first!

5. A Playstation 3 can eat up ALOT of time and 11:00 pm.

Simon Says, “Happy Easter!”

I’m not sure what your church did for Easter service, but the Granger Community Church played a life-sized game of Simon. The Pastor, Mark Beeson, used the game as a sermon illustration. I gotta tell you, that is a long way to go for a sermon illustration.
