Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

Any reports of snowball fights?  :D

Here's another picture in Cairo:

Vain existence can never exist, for "unless the LORD builds the house, the builders labor in vain." (Psalm 127)

If the faith is unchanged and rock solid, then the gates of Hades never prevailed in the end.

a. Stopped the flood very quickly.

c. Did nothing.
d. Added more water.

LOL, Netscape!
Mor Ephrem is a nice guy.  Just say sorry and it will all be ok. Say I had things that were inside troubling me but I didn't know how to express appropriately. I will not behave that way again but I am seeking help.

...if you feel Mor really is in spiritual danger, pray the Jesus prayer for him.   :police:

I really am very bummed that being a "nerd" now means little more than just consuming one or more of some predefined "nerd" products: Star Wars, anime, comic books, etc. It's very rare that one comes across a "nerd" who is actually smart.

As a note (with little information), I tried NCSA Mosaic a couple of years ago on a Mac to see if there was any compatibility to the internet and there wasn't. I can probably make a screen shot of Mosaic , but it is not clear there is any interest in nonfunctional images.
If you cannot remember everything, instead of everything, I beg you, remember this without fail, that not to share our own wealth with the poor is theft from the poor and deprivation of their means of life; we do not possess our own wealth but theirs.  If we have this attitude, we will certainly offer our money; and by nourishing Christ in poverty here and laying up great profit hereafter, we will be able to attain the good things which are to come. - St. John Chrysostom

By a nonfunctional image do you mean an image of it not working... or just an image of when it was working (even though it doesn't work now)?

I meant you cannot even get to www.google.com. Your questions are more mindboggling, and therefore worthwhile pondering their meaning.
