A while ago, Clayboy tagged me with a meme with the following rules: Please try to name ONE (I know, there are so many to choose from) CCM praise song that you find unbearable and at least 2-3 reasons why, pointing to specific lyrics if you must. I’ve struggled a little with how to answer […]

One Artist Meme

Phil Ritchie has come up with a fascinating meme, which involves answering a series of questions using song titles from only one artist. Here is my attempt. Pick yourself an artist – Led Zeppelin Describe yourself – Dazed and Confused If you could go anywhere, where would you go – Kashmir Your favourite form of transportation – Night Flight […]

The First Fifteen Music Meme

Following on from Clayboy, Phil, Simon and, no doubt, a host of others… 1) Turn on your MP3 player or music player on your computer. 2) Go to SHUFFLE songs mode. 3) Write down the first 15 songs that come up–song title and artist–NO editing/cheating, please. So – here we go… Don’t Marry her, Marry […]

Tweet Creed Meme

Memes seem to be like busses, you don’t see one for ages, then two come along at once.

Theodicy: Suffering and the Goodness of God

Peter Kirk has tagged me with a rather interesting meme which asks rather more difficult and meaningful questions than the normal ‘what is you favourite ice-cream?’ thing that goes the rounds. There are four questions and I might get round to answering all of them. 1. if the nature of god is omnipotent, benevolent, and […]

The impossible dream meme.

It seems that you are no one in the blogging world if you have not started a meme and as I always aim to be at the cutting edge of cool (yeah, right!), I thought that I would give it a go. As I get older, there are more and more things that I wish […]

Weird Worship

Peter has tagged me with a meme started by David Ker and challenged me to mention examples of weird worship either from the Bible or from personal experience. Well, I’ve always been amused by the ideas of wave offerings from the Scriptures: From the basket of bread made without yeast, which is before the LORD, […]

Why I Blog

David Ker (the artist formerly known as Lingamish) has tagged me with a meme asking why I blog. The simple answer is that I don’t know. I started off keeping a website as a way to keep in contact with the people who pray for us and support us financially. The name Kouya Chronicle was […]
