Scientists find new penguin

There's been a new, previously unknown species of Penguin found in New Zealand. Apparently the scientists had no idea it had ever been there before. I wonder why that is.....

Could it be that no one thought to look in a dense forest??

Or will we start this game over again?

When in the course of Christian Ministry it becomes necessary for its members to dissolve the leadership which has connected them as one body and to assume through careful prayer and counsel, the reading of Scripture and meditation on it's Truths, a new leadership ordained by God, a decent respect to the opinions of that body requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.
We hold these truths to be manifest and clear, that all ministry is equal and singular in its purpose, that it was established by God for the encouraging of others in the faith, and for the providing for those in need, and the spreading of the Gospel, which is the end thereof. — That to secure these principles, Leadership is instituted among a Church Body, deriving their just authority from the consent of our Sovereign Lord, — That whenever any form of Leadership becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the Body to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Leadership, laying its foundation firmly back on such solid principles and organizing its authority in such form, as to most likely to effect the purposes of Ministry and the sovereign Will of God. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Leadership long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and misdeeds, pursuing invariably the same offenses hindering and preventing the objects of Christian Ministry, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Leadership, and to allow God to provide new direction for their future ministry. — Such has been the patient sufferance of this Body; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their Leadership, through Faith and Trust in God. The history of the present ministry Leadership is a history of repeated injuries and abuses, all having in direct affect the hindrance and prevention of the objects of the Ministry. Thus the body of the ministry has found it necessary and proper, under such pretenses, to establish a new Leadership.

Serentae 2.0

So I'm back, and so is this neglected website. As you can see I took the time to recreate the design and layout. It looks a lot better in my opinion and provides flexibility to adapt it in various ways. The theme of the site will continue as it was before, and you'll notice that all the old posts are still intact. Suggestions and comments are, as always, welcome. © 2010. layout by Chaotic Soul :: Converted by Randomness
