The Good Fight, No.25
Thanks for your prayers and encouragement over the last month. While we continue to labour under various pressures here, and while I don't seem to be able to escape the cycle of ceaseless activity, I have been very mindful lately of just how much we have to give thanks for here:
One of the biggest encouragements I've had of late came yesterday via an email from one of you guys, telling me that my book had helped him reconnect with his teenage son. That sort of things makes it all worthwhile. Thanks again Alan.
I'll get out of the way now. There's lots of stuff to tell ya. I hope to see you at the fight on April 2nd. Until then I remain ...
Your brother in the Good Fight,
P.S. For those who didn't receive a separate email about this, I wanted to offer all of you a rebrander for the preview version of my book, which means that you can give that version away and earn up to 50% on every sale that it generates. You can pick up the rebrander at no cost here.
Christians vs Lions XIX (April 2)
The guy you see on the right here is Guy Slugger Moon - the Pentecostal Pastor from the rural district of Albury-Wodonga, who is going to be my opponent at Petersham RSL on April 2.
Like most great fighters, Pastor Guy is a real gentleman, and best of all, he's trying to set up a gym and Youth Centre down at Albury-Wodonga for local kids!
And the best thing about this show is that at least another seven of our boys (at last count) should be fighting on the night. You'll see most of their faces and get all the details about the night by clicking here.
Those who are on my weekly list will have seen this one already, but for those who haven't, I want to encourage you to take another look at that very ancient story we find in Genesis 3 about the woman, the man, the snake, and the forbidden tree of knowledge.
My feeling is that this passage offers us a powerful reminder of the fact that we can know too much. Not all of you have agreed with me on this point (and I'm always encouraged by those who write in to take issue with me) but I was convinced of the truth of this again this week when ABC Television screened a documentary on the tragic double life of one of our Bishops.
Why did ABC Television screen such a tragic story, when the only possible result could be more pain to all parties involved? I suppose because the public has a right to know! How is it that we became such a voyeuristic society - finding entertainment in the personal tragedies of other? Perhaps the answer lies back in an ancient garden. Click here.
Once again there are no shortage of great sites and articles to recommend to you this month. Here's six of the best that I've found:

Interview with Mick Spinks, Part 4 This month we continue our interview with Aussie Fighting Legend Mick Spinks, and hone in on Mick's training routine.
"I was a psycho trainer", says Mick, .and when you see the training routine that Mick followed, you'll see the appropriateness of the term. Even so, Mick's training routine was not only extreme, it was also scientific and innovative. 'No jogging' says Mick, 'a waste of time ... I don't believe in getting any of my fighters to jog!'
Mick flouted conventional wisdom and went all the way to the top! You'll understand why when you read this month's installment. Click here.
