Hey Fanz!
Gordon's Acoustic Living Room
OK, so you missed the last Gordon's Acoustic Living Room of 2004.  It was a good one, too!  The Pope of the Sinclairs was there!  Watch out for details of our upcoming tour to Scotland!
Don't worry!  We'll be back in the new year at the Free Times Café, 320 College Street, on lots of Sunday nights in 2005, starting with Sunday, January 16.  It won't be a regular week of the month, so keep an eye on the website for dates.  All shows start at 8:00 p.m. - except . . .
It'll be a double shot of Celtic Eclectic in January!  We'll be doing a special show on Burns Night, Tuesday, January 25, starting at 10:00 p.m.
Mind the haggis!

In the meantime,

you can catch Cooler By The Lake at the LOFT fundraiser at St. James Cathedral at 7:30 p.m. on Monday, December 6.

LOFT (Leap of Faith, Together) is a Community Service organization which offers permanent housing, community outreach and supportive housing services to over 2,500 vulnerable and homeless people at 50 sites in the Greater Toronto area and York Region.

There'll be a star-studded cast and us, so dig deep.  Last year's concert raised $75,000!


If you're in the Simcoe Chess Club or the Port Dover Divers' Club, I'll see you soon with Patio Dave & the Lanterns at your holiday parties.  If you're not, well ho, ho, ho anyway!  Get shopping!

From the Web -
An open letter . . .
Dear President Bush;
Thank you for doing so much to educate people regarding God's Law. I have learned a great deal from you and understand why you would propose and support a constitutional amendment banning same sex marriage. As you said, "in the eyes of God marriage is based between a man and a woman." I try to share that knowledge with as many people as I can. When someone tries to defend the homosexual lifestyle, for example, I simply remind them that Leviticus 18:22 clearly states it to be an abomination... End of debate.  
I do need some advice from you, however, regarding some other elements of God's Laws and how to follow them.

1. Leviticus 25:44 states that I may possess slaves, both male and female, provided they are purchased from neighboring nations. A friend of mine claims that this applies to Mexicans, but not Canadians. Can you clarify? Why can't I own Canadians?

2. I would like to sell my daughter into slavery, as sanctioned in Exodus 21:7. In this day and age, what do you think would be a fair price for her? (I'm pretty sure  she's a virgin).

3. When I burn a bull on the altar as a sacrifice, I know it creates a pleasing odor for the Lord -   Lev.1:9. The problem is, my neighbors. They claim the odor is not pleasing to them. Should I smite them?

4. I have a neighbor who insists on working on the Sabbath. Exodus 35:2.clearly states he should be put to death. Am I morally obligated to kill him myself, or should I ask the police to do it?  How can I help you here?

 5. A friend of mine feels that even though eating  shellfish is an abomination - Lev. 11:10, it is a  lesser abomination than homosexuality. I don't agree. Can you settle this? Aren't there 'degrees' of abomination?

6. Lev.21:20 states that I may not approach the altar of God if I have a defect in my sight. I have to admit that I wear reading glasses. Does my vision have to be 20/20, or is there some wiggle-room here?

7. Most of my male friends get their hair trimmed,  including the hair around their temples, even though this is expressly forbidden by Lev. 19:27. How should they die?

8. I know from Lev. 11:6-8 that touching the skin of a dead pig makes me unclean, but may I still play football if I wear gloves?

9. My uncle has a farm. He violates Lev.19:19 by planting two different crops in the same field, as does his wife by wearing garments made of two different kinds of thread (cotton/polyester blend). He also tends to curse and blaspheme a lot. Is it really necessary that we go to all the trouble of getting the whole town together to stone them? Lev.24:10-16.  Couldn't we just burn them to death at a private  family affair, like we do with people who sleep with  their in-laws? (Lev. 20:14)  I know you have studied these things extensively and thus enjoy considerable expertise in such matters, so I am confident you can help.
 Thank you again for reminding us that God's word is eternal and unchanging.  It must be really great to be on such close terms with God and his son, even better than you and your own Dad, eh?


. . . and in the news . . .

I'm not sure exactly how it works, but this is amazingly accurate. The attached photo has two identical dolphins in it. It was used in a case study on stress level at St. Mary's Hospital. Look at both dolphins jumping out of the water. The dolphins are identical. A closely monitored, scientific study of a group revealed that in spite of the fact that the dolphins are identical, a person under stress would find differences in the two dolphins. If there are many differences found between the dolphins, it means that the person is experiencing a great amount of stress. Look at the photograph, and if you find more than one or two differences you may want to take a vacation.
