CERITAKAN PADA DUNIA UNTUKKU

KesaksianOleh: John Powell, S.J.Sekitar 14 tahun yang lalu, aku berdiri menyaksikan para mahasiswaku berbaris memasuki kelas untuk mengikuti kuliah pertama tentang teologi iman. Pada hari itulah untuk pertama kalinya aku melihat Tommy. Dia sedang menyisir rambutnya yang terurai sampai sekitar 20 cm di bawah bahunya. Penilaian singkatku: dia seorang yang aneh - sangat aneh.Tommy ternyata menjadi tantanganku yang terberat. Dia terus-menerus mengajukan keberatan. Dia juga melecehkan tentang kemungkinan Tuhan mencintai secara tanpa pamrih. Ketika dia muncul untuk mengikuti ujian di akhir kuliah, dia bertanya dengan agak sinis, "Menurut Pastor apakah saya akan pernah menemukan Tuhan?""Tidak," jawabku dengan sungguh-sungguh."Oh," sahutnya. "Rasanya Anda memang tidak pernah mengajarkan bagaimana menemukan Tuhan."Kubiarkan dia berjalan sampai lima langkah lagi dari pintu, lalu kupanggil. "Saya rasa kamu tak akan pernah menemukan-Nya. Tapi, saya yak…

We announced big news today - our preliminary results for our fiscal second quarter, and as importantly, that we're acquiring MySQL AB.
If you're interested in the financial details for the quarter, tune in to our conference call (see details on sun.com) today - we'll obviously have more to say as we release our formal results on January 24th.
But the biggest news of the day is... we're putting a billion dollars behind the M in LAMP. If you're an industry insider, you'll know what that means - we're acquiring MySQL AB, the company behind MySQL, the world's most popular open source database.
You'll recall I wrote about a customer event a few weeks ago, at which some of the world's most important web companies talked to us about their technology challenges. Simultaneously, we gathered together some of the largest IT shops and their CIO's, and spent the same two days (in adjoining rooms) listening to their views and d…

PAHIT MENJADI MANIS

Selasa, 15 Januari 2008Keluaran 15:22-27Tuhan menunjukkan kepadanya sepotong kayu;
Musa melemparkan kayu itu ke dalam air; lalu air itu menjadi manis
(Keluaran 15:25)
Acap kali sukacita dan dukacita berjalan seiring. Seperti bangsa Israel yang merasakan getar kemenangan di Laut Merah, tetapi tiga hari sesudahnya menjumpai air yang pahit di Mara (Keluaran 15:22,23), sukacita kita pun dapat segera berubah menjadi kemarahan.Di Mara, Tuhan menyuruh Musa melemparkan sepotong kayu ke dalam air, sehingga air itu menjadi manis dan bisa diminum (ayat 25). Suatu "potongan kayu" lain yang "dilemparkan ke dalam" berbagai situasi pahit hidup kita dapat membuat situasi itu menjadi manis. Potongan kayu itu adalah salib Yesus (1Petrus 2:24). Pandangan kita akan berubah saat kita merenungkan kematian-Nya yang penuh pengurbanan dan penyerahan-Nya pada kehendak Allah (Lukas 22:42).Penderitaan kita dapat terjadi karena dibenci orang lain, atau lebih buruk lagi, karena tida…

(Kerendahan Hati Versi Jim Collins, Lao Tzu, dan Yesus Kristus)

Dewasa ini, pemimpin yang rendah hati termasuk dalam kategori "satwa langka" yang perlu dilindungi. Kapan terakhir kali Anda menjumpainya?Dalam salah satu bukunya tentang kepemimpinan, John Stott menulis:"At no point does the Christian mind come into more collision with the secular mind than in its insistence on with all the weakness it entails."Menurut Stott, tabrakan terdahsyat perspektif alkitabiah dan sekuler terjadi pada masalah kerendahan hati.Dunia memang sama sekali tidak memberikan apresiasi terhadap kerendahan hati karena kerendahan hati dianggap identik dengan kelemahan dan kerugian. Dunia menuntut kuasa, bukan kelemahan. Yang dunia senantiasa inginkan adalah pemimpin ala Nietzsche, yaitu "ubermensch" atau "superman". Pemimpin yang tangguh, maskulin, dan otoritatif, bahkan kalau perlu opresif.Sedangkan pemimpin ideal ala Yesus adalah anak kecil. Anak kecil yang tidak berdaya, yang sangat tergantung kepada orang lain. Terdapat kontras …

Write with "Windows Live Writer"

i have installed windows live writers, i know this application where read Andi Gutmans blog. This application very nice and very comfortable. Support with blogger (may be another) and it's for very important of course this is free. And now maybe iam never use blogspot for write blog and can save the my bandwith.. :)
if you prefered to download come to this Windows Live. it's need windows critical update. When choose download you will offer another application. But if you wan't another application and only need this writer application (like me) you can just get the option only writer application.
thanks microsoft for great application..
