Flashback: This Week Last Year [2012 Week #11]

MV Shariatpur 1 Ferry DisasterThis week last year in Bangladesh 116 lives were lost when the MV Shariatpur 1 duble deck ferry capsized on the Meghna River after colliding with a cargo ship [Source].

Accidents such as this one remind us of just how fragile human life is. James wrote: “Come now, you who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go into such and such a town and spend a year there and trade and make a profit”— yet you do not know what tomorrow will bring. What is your life? For you are a mist that appears for a little time and then vanishes. Instead you ought to say, “If the Lord wills, we will live and do this or that.” James 4:12-15 ESV.

During the 11th week of 2012 Digital Sojourner posted a number of interesting articles including:

  • A free PDF ebook, His Gospel’s Effect, of brother Bruce Hulshizer’s teaching series on Romans 9-16 was made available via free download.
  • Multitasking FailIn The Lost Art of Single Tasking brother Long Vo explores the value of being able to concentrate on a single task. Drawing upon the example of our Lord Jesus Christ who intentionally sought out isolated places to spend time in prayer with His Father, Long writes how it is so important for us to spend quality one on one time with our earthly families.
  • Last year’s post Is Change A Good Thing? continues to generate much interest as people continue to discover the article through search engines. Apparently many are googling this question. So is change a good thing? check out this fascinating post to discover why Crawford concludes that not only is change a good thing… it’s a necessary thing!
