CTA Newsletter #9

CTA Newsletter #9

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hi all! Here I am here again with the next issue of the CTA Newsletter! You will find that this issue is much shorter than others and that there is a few changes but before I get into that let me give you some announcements: 1. CTA is now at 150 members! 2. The ĎNumbersí squadron has been started and will be lead by akpickens@erols.com. Ok, well I hope you enjoy this issue and that you have another two God-Filled weeks.

Letters From Our Readers

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Over the past two weeks I have received a few more letters from you, the readers, saying how good the newsletter was and such and Iím very thankful for that, but I also want some opposition. I mean, I know this Newsletter isnít perfect but from what I am hearing from you its starting to sound as if it is. Remember this Newsletter canít grow unless I receive all opinions, both good and bad.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Reviews

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok this week I will be reviewing a web site that I have recently discovered while surfing the net. It is not Christian site, at least not to my knowledge, but it is a very good site to visit if you collect the Star Wars CCG. One last thing, I am really flat out of things to review; I might be able to make reviews for the next issue and maybe the one following it but than I will probably be out. Dead Jawas at http://www.isomedia.com/homes/tonyc/swccg/swccg.htm#strategy

This site is pretty cool. I, myself, donít like the name of the site but the stuff in it makes it worth visiting again and again. You can find at this site everything from trades and polls about the latest expansions to rules to play SWCCG alone (A feature that I think is really worth checking out because its really not what you think.) to EVERYthing you could possibly want to know about Jawas and the Tonnika Sisters. On a scale of one to ten I would have to give this site a very strong 9.1; in other words: go there and bookmark it.

Scripture of the Week/Bible Trivia/Bible Reading Plan

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

14And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away. Revelation 21:4 KJV (

You hear this verse when the ship is sinking in ĎTitanicí.)

Thought of the week: ĎThose who fear the darkness have never seen what the light can doí Submitted by an anonymous reader.

Bible Trivia:

Ok two issues ago I gave you a taste of what Bible Trivia is like but this time its going to be a little different; now Iím going into full swing. Below you will find ten questions from the book of John, but you will not find the answers; I have decided to make it like a contest. WITHOUT looking in your Bible, answer all of the questions with the best answer you can think of (Guess if you have to.) and submit them to me. The person with the most correct answers or partly correct answers will be published in the next issue of CTA. Have fun!!!

1. Name the seven things that Jesus says He is in the book of John.

2. We know him by Peter but was his real name?

3. What was the first miracle that Jesus preformed in the book of John?

4. Quote John 3:16.

5. When Jesus asked the Samaritan woman for a drink of water, where were his disciples and what were they doing?

6. What time of day was it when Jesus walked on the water?

7. How many loaves of bread and how many fish did Jesus originally have to feed the five thousand with?

8. What was the final words of Jesus before he died on the cross?

9. When Jesus had risen, where did he have holes in him?

10. Who was the first person Jesus appeared to after he had risen?

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Articles/Interviews

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok this week you find only a very small number of articles. Please remember to keep sending me stuff so there is plenty of stuff to read in the Newsletter. About Magic? I thought I would respond. Jesus said (somewhere in Mark, I think) that nothing that goes into a person can make him uncleanl that it is only what comes out. So if someone is faithful and enjoys playing magic without letting it influence them in any "unclean" way, I think it's ok.

Greetings Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

I've gotten an interesting idea from Klaw@erols.com. He suggested that we could use the CTA Chatroom as a gaming room. Instead of having to download the cardtable, or play on AIM, or ICQ, we could use the chatroom instead. I know of a couple of people who play CCG's online and I am inviting everyone of you to use the chatroom. I've also seen DS Gunner's posts about having an online tourney, feel free to use the chatroom. If it does get crowded, then we'll implement reservations for timeslots. thanks and God Bless.

A burglar broke into a house one night. He flashed his flashlight around looking for valuables, and when he picked up a CD player to place in his sack, a strange disembodied voice echoed from the dark said "Jesus is watching you." He nearly jumped out of his skin, clicked his flashlight off, and froze. When he heard nothing more after a bit, he shook his head, promised himself a vacation after the next big score, then clicked the light back on and began searching for more valuables. Just as he pulled the stereo out so he could disconnect the wires, clear as a bell he heard, "Jesus is watching you." Freaked out, he flashed his light around frantically, looking for the source of the voice. Finally, in the corner of the room, his flashlight beam came to rest on a parrot. "Did you say that?" he hissed at the parrot. "Yep," the parrot confessed, then squawked, "I'm trying to warn you." The burglar relaxed. "Warn me, huh? Who are you?" "Moses," replied the parrot. "Moses?" the bugler laughed. "What kind of stupid people would name a parrot Moses?" "Probably the same kind of people that would name a Rotweiller Jesus," the bird answered.

Prayer Requests

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

All the prayer requests in this section will need prayer so try to add at least one of them to your prayer before you go to bed or at any time during the day. If you have something that needs prayer then write up a short summary of what you need prayer for and send it to me. You can also just ask for a silent prayer request in which you just say that you need prayer but not what it is for, which you can just say that you have an unspoken. You can also request that I donít publish it and that just me, Daniel,Joshua, and all the other Rangers pray for it. Please read all of these and try to pray for them. Also if your prayer has been answered please send me a letter telling me what happened. I am really stressed out right now because I have sooooooo many things to do and so little time to do them in. I would really appreciate any prayer that you can give me because I really do need some relief. Josh B.

Hello, In the week of June 14-20, an accident happened here, in my area, and killed three women. We could say "It's bad, but these happen each day". We could say that. But when the accident also destroyed a whole house, a whole building, the building of an organization who help people who live in the roads, who have problems, it's different. Acceuil Bonneau took a hard hit: they lost there place where they welcome people, and they lost three voluntary, two of them were mothers of teenagers, the third was a gray sister. A great loss which touched me to my heart. It was so dramatic that even His Grace Cardinal Jean-Claude Turcotte came back from a travel to celebrate their death. After all, it was him who recruited them... But it's not over: two days after a plane crashed. A small one, but two man got killed. Two days after, AGAIN, 4 person lost there life in a car accident. Among them was a student of my school. I have order to keep his name secret, so I'll obey. And if we add the other plane crash of last week (21-27), 11 deaths, that makes 20 deaths in two weeks. 20 persons which weren't supposed to die... more than 1 per day.
