Plus all the links and extra bits from Holly & Dan for Wednesday 8 November.
Learning a new thing in 30 days:
Dan read about a woman who is starting a new hobby or learning a new skill every month this year. So we've all decided to take on learning a new skill for the next month, share our progress over the next few weeks, and we'll showcase our hobby on Friday the 8th of December.
Holly: taking up carpentry and building a birdhouse
Dan: finally learning to play the guitar (after owning one for a decade and never touching it)
Maxene: learning to knit and making herself an epic scarf.
Bonus shout-out to listener Jane who's told us she's joining in, and is going to learn to make cheese in the next few weeks!
Other things we talked about today:
Don't you hate it when you go to McDonalds for an icecream, only to find that the icecream machine is broken? Now there's an app to tell you where the nearest working soft serve machine is.
Wednesday's Would You Rather was a choice between marrying someone who claps at the end of movies or when the plane lands, and marrying someone who eats pizza with a knife and fork every time.
Jane: The pizza eater with knife and fork definitely gets my vote. I do that too! And clapping at the end of a movie? No way! Very embarrassing!
Karen: Definitely someone who claps for the pilot because I'm already married to someone who uses far too many dishes now. Lol. Karen
Jeanne: Morning Dan and Holly, I would rather marry someone who clap instead. It just shows he will be someone who would appreciate good things in life.
Bethel Music's Cory Asbury has released "Reckless Love" - get the single on iTunes now.
Today's Bible Society Verse of the Day is Romans 5:18 - "Yes, Adam's one sin brings condemnation for everyone, but Christ's one act of righteousness brings a right relationship with God and new life for everyone."
Guilt can feel like you're carrying round a super heavy backpack. You can feel so worried about someone seeing what's inside and then judging you but because of Jesus you can trade that judgement for forgiveness.
Remember no matter what you've done, no matter what situation you're in you don't have to feel the weight of guilt, of shame or condemnation. Just ask for forgiveness and instead feel the love and embrace of your heavenly father.
