FOR THOSE THAT HAVE BATTLES WITH THEIR WEAKNESSES . . .



Religious movements and prophets have come and gone.  Only ONE Person glorified weakness. Only ONE Person accepted shameful and humiliating death on a cross as the path to exaltation. Only ONE Person conquered the world through His death, death on a cross. And Only ONE Person rose from the dead.  He is now exalted by God.  He is "King of Kings" and "Lord of Lords!"  Jesus Christ!

THE MESSAGE OF CHRISTMAS SPEAKS TO US FROM THE RUBBLE OF AIR BLUE FLIGHT 202


The True Story of How an Out-of-Control Egotistical Captain Humiliated the First Officer and Caused an Air Blue Airbus A321 to Crash!   


July, 28 2010 near Islamabad, the capital of Pakistan, killing all 146 passengers and six crew on board flight 202:  After listening to the cockpit communication, it becomes clear that the Captain premeditated at some point during his take-off tirade (1 hour long) humiliating the First Officer (FO) and then purposely ignoring certain headings from ATC. Inputting computer errors was just another device the Captain used to terrorize the FO, even more so than his tirade.

The Captain was consciously hell-bent on exerting egotistical power and control over the other man in the cockpit, the FO. In the secret recesses of his mind, he plotted to take the FO for the "ride of his life" over the next 1.5 hours.  The Captain, by mixing the computer controls up a bit with blatant errors, now holds the keys to life and death, the ultimate power trip. 

His premeditated actions are meant to assume power and instill fear and control over FO. The Captain then surmised that in the end, he would augment his domination by being a hero and saving the day with his aircraft (AC) knowledge and flying prowess. The Captain believed that after this flight, the FO will know for certain who is "top dog" and "alpha male."

Unfortunately, the Captain got in too deep with his mind games and could not dig himself out. As Captain, he believed he had absolute control over the FO and the AC. Ironically, he falls victim to his own devilish devices. Something greater than he, i.e. the weather and the automation of the aircraft become the ultimate power struggle winners in this air crash. 

The Captain, haughty and proud, just seconds from disaster is humbled and then in a flash is broken and crushed as the AC disintegrates into the side of a mountain, missing the airport by 4 miles. The First Officer is redeemed in this story by the ultimate humiliation and destruction of the dominator. 
In God's world, victims are exalted while the haughty and proud are brought low.  And so the meaning of Christmas speaks to us from the rubble Air Blue flight 202:

"Every valley shall be exalted, and every mountain and hill shall be made low: and the crooked shall be made straight, and the rough places plain:" Isaiah 40:4

Thanksgiving



We say "thanks be to God!" this Thanksgiving for all we have.  St. Francis said all good and all success comes from God.  The only thing we humans can own and gift to God are our failures, weaknesses and brokenness.

3.  Teach them and go with them to church each Sunday.

4.  Teach them and go with them making random acts of kindness - visit a nursing home, make holiday crafts for the old folks, help the homeless.
