Eliud Simiyu is the self-proclaimed Jesus of Tongaren from Bungoma. Some locals have suggested he be crucified as Jesus was, reassuring him that if his claims are true he will be resurrected on the third day. Understandably he has express concern for his life. Orphaned as a child, Simiyu was struck in the head during a domestic dispute in 2009. After being released form the hospital he began preaching. He later claimed to be Jesus, identifying himself as a “divine being” and claims to have miraculous powers. On one occasion, according to witnesses, he turned water into… tea. You know what they say, it’s all fun and games until a mob wants to crucify you on Easter to see if you are really Jesus.

Midwest Regional Bus Conference – North Platte Baptist Church of North Platte, Nebraska, hosted this year’s bus conference in February. The church’s YouTube channel has all of the sessions featuring guest pastors and speakers. While I can’t get over the bus podium the focus of the event is the success of church bus ministries and includes the testimonies of lives that have been changed.

Types of Coffee Drinks, a follow up to the levels of roast chart from last week. Not sure I understand how a latte, cortado and a flat white differ from each other. They are all espresso with steamed milk from what I can tell. An American is a shot of espresso plus hot water… so, a cup of coffee? More research is required.

I could see how these two inspired Pinky and the Brain. I also see…

Jamie Hyneman and Adam Savage of Mythbusters fame. It’s not just me, right?

This core sample was taken at the Indianapolis Super Motor Speedway and represents 108 years of surfacing and resurfacing the track. The bottom layer is brick. Just think about it.

The future is now. Until it isn’t. Someday they will laugh at your 1 gig connection speed, your VR headset and A.I. that does what you ask it to.

Jeremy Renner survived an accident with a snow plow back in December that broke over 30 bones in his body. Now he’s back promoting a new series, Rennervations, coming to Disney+ in April. He says getting ready for the new show gave him the motivation to recover. Two months ago I thought Renner recovering slowly as a mortal human would and not like a superhero might. Now I’m not so sure.

Chaim Topol, better known as Topol, has passed at the age of 87. He appeared in over 30 films. He was Dr. Hans Zarkov in Flash Gordon and Milos Columbo in the James Bond film For Your Eyes Only with Roger Moore. But his best known role, no doubt the one for which he will be remembered, is Tevye in The Fiddler on the Roof.

It says Arby’s right in the middle but it had me thinking Alabama. It even has the mullet.

The only post I wrote this week offered high praise to Paul Wilkinson and his insights into Jesus Revolution and the Asbury Revival. I read a critical review a day or two ago about what happened at Asbury and how it was not a revival because there no preacher preaching the Gospel and calling for repentance. Their definition of revival did not recognize a stirring of the Holy Spirit or looking for signs of repentance and new life weeks or months down the road. We can really only tell if true revival took place after the fact as we look back at what changed. Unbelievers that respond to an evangelist become new believers; that’s sometimes what people call a revival. Revival takes place when believers whose fire is going out get rekindled. I hold preaching in high regard but revival may or may not involve the response to preaching. God’s people are able to hear and respond to his voice without me.

I like to save video clips until the end. Here’s Topol in the role that made him famous. I’ve had this stuck in my head since Thursday evening. Good luck.

  1. I forgot to mention the time change. Chances are your phone and other smart devices will update the time automatically but you still need to know it’s happening.

  2. The cylindrical core sample shown was indeed taken at Indianapolis but let the record show that was done in 2017. So it shows 108 years of history even though the track is now 114 years old. That’s just under 800 dog years.
