Swamped!

I am still swamped with stuff to do, it's been really good though because I got to head out of here and spend some time in Melbourne. It was Australia day long weekend so we had time off work and joined in on the celebrations. I only got back last night and have a few more days off work, i'll take these spare days to finnish getting my house all ready for someone else to move in.
I have had the chance to read all the comments from you guys, thanks, i've got lots to tell and can't wait to update.

In more interesting news, I enjoyed reading this article:
The world awaits the joint testimony of Christians

here is some of it...

VATICAN CITY, JAN 26, 2007 (VIS) - Yesterday afternoon in the Roman basilica of St. Paul's Outside-the-Walls, the Pope presided at the celebration of the second Vespers of the Feast of the Conversion of St. Paul. The ceremony, which marked the end of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, was attended by representatives from other Churches and ecclesial communities.


In his homily, the Holy Father recalled how the theme of this year's Week of Prayer, taken from the Gospel of St. Mark - "He even makes the deaf to hear and the mute to speak" - had been proposed by Christian communities in South Africa. "These words," he said, "are good news announcing the coming of the Kingdom of God and the healing of the incapacity to communicate."


"Listening to the Word of God ... is a priority in our ecumenical efforts. Indeed, it is not we who organize the unity of the Church; the Church does not create herself and does not live by herself, but by the Word that comes from the mouth of God."


"Whoever undertakes to listen to the word of God can and must then speak out and transmit it to others, to those who have never heard it, or to those who have forgotten it and buried it under the 'thorns' of the cares and illusions of the world.
