John Lloyd Inventories the Invisible

Invisibility

I thought this was rather brilliant this morning as I contemplated the beauty of Gods creation and the humor of finding things of invisibility. I must use this as an illustration some time!

By the way, in answer to John’s agnosticism and defining terms… I believe that is the point! Man cannot define God’s terms just as we cannot define his character. To do so is to miss his existence entirely and in the midst of trying would only be caught up in ideology and ultimately idolatry. It is God who can and did state his terms through the act of incarnation not through words or things!

Babylonian Beer Anyone?

Every month my wife receives a newsletter from a local real-estate company. She likes to flip through it and look for the latest recipes which of course are very agreeable to my stomach and taste buds! Anyways, in this last months issue there was an interesting “facts” note on beer which I thought I would share with all my fellow brew fans!

Beer has been a popular beverage for a long time. Babylonian clay tablets show detailed recipes of beer making in 4300 B.C. Beer was also brewed by the ancient Chinese, Assyrians and Incas. An Egyptian text of 1600 B.C. gives a 100 medical prescriptions using beer. A few years ago, the New Castle Brewery in England brewed 1,000 bottles of Tutankhamen Ale from a 3,200 year old recipe found in an ancient temple. Commercial beer making was established in 1200 A.D. in present day Germany. In 1506, the German Purity Law was issued, specifying that beer ingredients must only be water, barley, wheat, and hops. Bottling of beer started in 1605. Worldwide today, 20,000 brands of beer are brewed in 180 styles, from ales, lagers, pilsner, and stouts to bitters, cream ales, and iced beers.
