in the Good Fight
one man dreams, it is just a dream, but when we all dream together, it
is the beginning of a new reality.
Dom Helder Camara
There seems to be a great degree of turmoil and pain in every corner of
the globe this week!
the north, Barack Obama is fighting for his political life, trying to
bring in health-care reforms that (to most of us non-American
appear to be much different from what the rest of the developed world
already has in place.
In the South, we've been hit by tsunamis, earthquakes and flooding.
Two Sundays ago the Philippines received one month's rainfall in a
period - killing hundreds and leaving nearly half a million people
homeless, while in Indonesia, an earthquake claimed even more lives!
Simultaneously, tsunamis have wreaked death and destruction across the
Pacific Island nations of Samoa and Tonga.
the East tensions continue to rise as the Israeli Prime
Benjamin Netanyahu, snubs the US demand to halt settlement expansion,
thus adding fuel to the already-raging fire of moral outrage that burns
across the Arab world.
course the natural response for many of us to these tragedies is simply
to despair and say, ''well,
there's nothing I can do about any of that'. But that is
simply not true! None of us is powerless any more - not in
this age of globalisation and the Internet.
When we see need, we can contribute to the appeals (such as this appeal for the Philippines,
run by the Anglican
Board of Mission). And where we see injustice
abounding, we can blog about it!
underestimate the power of the Internet to disemminate truth and spread
justice. I can say with pride that through my Internet efforts over the
last 10 years I have managed to expose one corrupt company that was
preying on the elderly and the mentally ill (such that
victims received compensation), I've played what I believe is
significant role in peace and justice work worldwide, and I've shared
the Gospel of hope with countless souls across the planet.
My chief focus with my online work now is to equip YOU
with the tools to do the same - to give you an online platform from
which you can spread the word, work for peace, and share your passion
with the world.
That's the whole idea of our member site - www.fighting-fathers.com.
It gives you the ability to create blogs, podcasts
multi-media presentations that you can share with the world, as well as
stage tele-seminars and online video-chat meetings
is my promise to you: whatever you
publish on fighting-fathers.com I will
promote for you!
you write a blog about the war in Afghanistan or upload a podcast of a
sermon youv'e given, I will tell my 10,000+ Twitter followers about it
and I'll publicise it in this ezine. This means that, in
the 1000's of people who normally crawl www.fighting-fathers.com
to look at our new material, you'll receive 100's if not 1000's of
extra visitors, probably within hours of me Tweeting about your work.
So please put me to the test: Join fighting-fathers.com
(if you haven't already) and publish your thoughts, and let me help you
share your passion with the world. Why? Because
can make a difference! I believe it! Are you
give it a shot?

Virtual Pulpit: Sex in the
voice of my beloved! Look,
he comes, leaping upon the mountains, bounding over the
hills. My beloved is like a gazelle or a young stag.
Look, there he stands behind our wall, gazing in at the windows,
looking through the lattice.
My beloved speaks and says to
"Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away; for now the
winter is past, the rain is over and gone. The flowers appear
on the earth; the time of singing has come, and the voice of the
turtledove is heard in our land. The fig tree puts forth its
figs, and the vines
are in blossom; they give forth fragrance. Arise, my love, my fair one,
and come away.
Song of Solomon 2:8-13
When it comes to
the church's attitude towards sex words such as 'uncomforrtable', 'disapproving' and 'conservative' come
to mind. And yet there is an entire book in the Bible devoted to
celebrating the joys of sexual love, where the tone is anything but
disapproving and uncomfortable!
Not surprisingly, many in the church have wondered what to do with the 'Song of Songs'.

sermon (and all the sermons of the Fighting Fathers) from the Fighting

Video of the Week: 'About Men' (2nd
This is the
second segment that I've extracted from my recent TV appearance on the
documentary 'About Men'.
This section features (amongst other things) a rather inglorious
appearance by me at the front door after having just been woken from a
nap. The focus though (thankfully) is elsewhere - on one of the young
lads of Holy Trinity Gym who is training for his first fight.
If you've never trained with us at Father Dave's Fight Club, this will
give you a small glimpse of what you're missing out on.

me conclude today by letting you know that I've been pouring plentyh of
hours into improving our Fighting Fathers Member Site -
simplifying the way it works and increasing benefits for members.
Here's what I've accomplisehd over the last couple of weeks:
Where possible, I've made all sermons and other
podcasts downloadable from the video/MP3 area.
I've eliminated the problem of members needing
more than one
password. From now on your regular member's username and password will
give you access to all members benefits.
I've created a general software library in
Benefits' area that now has over 70 useful
programs and 16 ebooks (with plenty more to come). All are completely
Please do check out the new software librarythat
I've created. As I've said above, my goal is to help you
build your online platform so that you can share your message with the
world, and you'll find that each item in the software library is
designed to help you do that.
Over coming weeks, I plan to continue to build up
the member benefits, including offering you your own free website on
your own domain name! Stay tuned and I'll update you as
I finalise my plans. But keep in mind that existing members
will be the first to benefit, so if you haven't joined www.fighting-fathers.com
yet, please do consider it.
Until next we meet, may the Lord bless and
strengthen you for the work to which you have been called.
P.S. If you're free to join us for our weekly
web-chat, we meet every Sunday in the Fighting Fathers Video Web-chat room.
We meet at noon, Greenwich Mean time, which translates as 10pm Sydney
time, 8am USA East Coast, 5am on the West Coast, and ... you can work
out the rest.

If you haven't done so yet, please do me a
favour and download and install my special RSS notifier from here. It solves the problem of my
emails to you not getting through.
