In 8 minutes it will be 8/8/8

The part of the church where the silliest things happen. Conversations that sound like they belong in the youth room will be moved here.

It's now 8/9/8 or 8/9/08 or 9/8/8 or 9/8/08 or 08/8/9 or something like that, depending on whether you're in Europe or the U.S.A. and whether you're geeky enough to want dates to sort lexically (or just to want dates, period.)

But it's Saturday. :D

Good Lord n' Butter! I thought this thread had passed gracefully into sweet oblivion. Perhaps it needs a lullaby:

O Southern Cross, O clover of fragrant phosphorous:
it entered your body today with four holy kisses,
it traveled across the shadows and across my hat,
and the moon went circling through the cold.

Then - with my love, my dearest - diamonds
of blue frost, calm of the sky, mirror:
you appeared, and the night filled
with your four trembling cellars of wine.

O throbbing silver of a pure polished fish,
green cross, parsley of the radiant shadows,
firefly condemned to the wholeness of the sky:

rest on me, let us close your eyes, and mine.
For one moment, sleep with the human night.
Light your four-sided constellation in me.

- Pablo Neruda, Sonnet LXXXVI

How many days until 9/9/9?
As thus we sat in darkness
Each one busy with his prayers,
"We are lost!" the captain shouted,
As he staggered down the stairs.

O love the Lord, all ye His saints: for the Lord preserveth the faithful. Psalm 31:23

Therefore, since we are receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken, let us be thankful, and so worship God acceptably with reverence and awe, for our God is a consuming fire.

Hebrews 12:28,29

Thanks for listening. Read that today and just wanted to share.
