Maribor – Slovenia: European City of Culture 2012 Greet The Bogside Artists

Maribor, second biggest city in Slovenia and this year’s Cultural Capital is host to Derry’s acclaimed Bogside Artists.

Their mural, which will form the centrepiece of the coming cultural festival will be unveiled by His Holiness The Dalai Lama on 17th May 2012.

The artists are fresh from their recent USA trip where they were feted by the universities of Bonaventure and Boston College.

This is a rare and unique coming together of cultures of Ireland, Slovenia and Tibet, factors that the artists have incorporated into theirmural in progress. For the artists this is an incredibly significant honour and accolade. Said spokesman Tom Kelly. ” We have been fortunate throughout the years to have enjoyed recognition and respect abroad and we are indeed grateful to the city of Maribor and its organizing council for giving us a wonderful centre stage on which to share our creative journey. And that is why we have decided to make a direct visual link between the Annette McGavigan schoolgirl mural from The People’s Gallery in the Bogside, Derry, which has proved to be one of the most popular of our creations and this mural which will highlight to the best of our ability the horrendous plight of the oppressed people of Tibet. We look forward immensely to meeting with their leader the Dalai Lama whose mission of peace, mutual respect and understanding in the world which has been our own foundation and mission for so many years. We see this as also an honour for the people of Derry and especially for all those who have supported us and The People’s Gallery. Like us, they are more than familiar with the abuses of human rights.”

The Bogside Artists created all of the twelve murals of The People’s Gallery. These murals depict the key events of the troubles in N.Ireland and especially those events that impacted the people of Derry and the Bogside whose story the artists felt impelled to tell via the art of mural painting. These huge murals are visited by many thousands of people each year.

The artists began painting their mural for Maribor today 19th April. It will be unveiled by the Dalai Lama on 17th May.

Dallas Pastor Ed Young Praises New Initiatives on Marital Intimacy

Typically, the very notion of marital intimacy is regarded as something of a punch line. Many sitcoms and movies make fun of the idea that married people enjoy good sex, and indeed, the stereotype is that marriage and passion are mutually exclusive. Recent reports have found that this is far from the case, however, as many married couples are embracing a regular intimate life as crucial for sustaining marital happiness. The Huffington Post offers insight into how some married couples are carving out intimate time together, and the report offers affirmation to the teachings of Dallas pastor Ed Young.

According to the Huffington article, spending time together is important for sustaining a healthy intimate life, which is in turn foundational for a healthy marriage. The article cites a recent study, finding that couples that spend time together at least once throughout the week are 3.5 times happier in bed. As the article points out, this time spent together means something akin to a date, not an occasion where children or household chores are in the cards.

The article confirms what Ed Young, Dallas author and pastor, has been saying for years, most recently in a new book called Sexperiment. Released earlier this year, Sexperiment encourages Christian married couples to spend time together, suggesting this time ultimately lays the foundation for a happy marriage—especially when that time spent together is intimate time.

Indeed, Ed Young’s book is largely devoted to the notion that a regular, healthy sex life is crucial for keeping a marriage strong and satisfying. In it, the pastor encourages Christian married couples to have sex together at least once per day for a week, and then to evaluate how it affects their marriage overall.

Ed Young’s book has won national media attention for its candid and honest discussion of sex as seen through the paradigm of the Bible. While other prominent pastors and authors have recently spoken out on the same topic, Sexperiment is unique for offering practical insight and tips on how creating a regular intimate life can be beneficial.

In fact, much of the book details the pragmatic benefits that a regular sex life can provide to married couples. Some of these benefits include more consistent communication, a stronger sense of purity, and a greater understanding of God’s purpose for the marriage. In addition to recommending the book for Christian married couples, the Dallas minister also endorses Sexperiment’s use for church-wide discussion and Sunday School groups.

ABOUT:

Ed Young is the founding pastor of Fellowship Church in Dallas, Texas. He has written more than a dozen books, including his latest release, Sexperiment: 7 Days to Lasting Intimacy with Your Spouse. The book, written alongside wife, Lisa, has garnered a great deal of attention for its unconventional take on the importance of sex within a marriage. While many religious leaders avoid the topic, Ed Young has preached the importance of intimacy within a marriage for years. The new book includes practical tips for Christian married couples seeking to develop a regular, creative, and passionate intimate life.

I rather be a dog

Any time soon, this young 24 yrs old Malaysian boy, convicted of drug trafficking, will be hang till death do him part by an unidentified Mr. Hangman in Changi Prison, Friday morning @ 6 am sharp.

If no one comes to his rescue soon, he’ll definitely and surely be under water very soon!

Supposing we see someone drowning like this, will we immediately dive in and rescue him from near death? Or will we ask questions first before we can help rescue him, questions like, “Who is he?”, “How come he’s in the water?”, “Did he fell into the water or was he pushed in?, “Is he rich or poor?”, “Where is he from? He looks like he’s not from this region.”, “Maybe he’s a ex-criminal wanting to commit suicide? Must have done a lot of bad thing in his life one la. That’s why this is call ‘retribution’ la. Ah… just let him drown la. He deserves it one la. Don’t care for him la. Just let him die la.”

Huh?

I don’t get it. People saved a dog but they won’t save a fellow human being from near death! Strange. So does that means that the dog’s life are more precious than human beings’ life?

If it is, than I rather be a dog then. At least I’m assured that I’ll be rescued and loved by human beings, unlike them human beings who weren’t rescue their own human beings. We dogs saves dogs you know.

Duh…
