An Interview With Bono

Check out this post that is an excerpt from the book Bono: In Conversation With Michka Assayas

The statement that struck me most profound in the whole article is "Religion can be the enemy of God."  I find this a common statement amongst my Christian friends these days.  We're tired of being labeled and judged based on denominations rather than the Bible.  I always hear the commercials on the radio for www.notreligion.com.  It's not about the religion.  It's about the relationship and the desire to follow Christ and become more like Him.  My prayer for my friends who do not believe, is that they will see past the religious ideas of this country and see through to the Christian ideals set forth by God in the Word.  Because the Word is the truth.  No where in the Bible does it say I have to be Methodist, Baptist, Episcopalian, etc. to go to heaven. No, it says I must believe.  And I do.

Bye Bye Blackberry

I knew it was coming.  The news reports said it was coming.  Internal communications said it was coming.  And today I got the email that made it all a reality.  Sometime in the next two weeks I will say goodbye to this (and AT&T)

and hello to this (and T-Mobile)

Reviews to come, I am sure.  Not exactly the phone upgrade I was looking forward to, but we'll see how it goes.  The Windows phones get mixed review and if you know me, you know I like to give an opinion.
