In the Year 2008...

Though I do not claim to be a fortune-teller, prophet, palm-reader, astrologist, or tarot card expert I thought I should mock the aforementioned and the bringing in of a new year while simultaneously honoring Conan O'Brien by looking into the future.
In the year 2008...
... the United States of America will celebrate it's first female or African-American president.
... I will learn through failure and success both through grace.
... regular unleaded gasoline will reach $4.00/gallon.
... Verizon will introduce a global calling plan.
... AT&T will change its name back to Cingular... again.
... my daughter Kyla at age (1) will state her first sentence, "Church is the missional, covenant community of followers of Jesus marked by incarnational compassion."
... Mariah Carey will attempt to make a comeback with an atrocious release entitled, "Sparkle."

I'm rooting for Obama, we'll know in the next week if he's got a chance.

Matthew 5:38-48, NASB

"You have heard that it was said, 'An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.' But I say to you, do not resist an evil person; but whoever slaps you on your right cheek, turn the other to him also. If anyone want to sue you and take your shirt, let him have your coat also. Whoever forces you to go one mile, go with him two. Give to him who asks of you, and do not turn away from him who wants to borrow from you. You have heard that it was said, 'You shall love your neighbor and hate your enemy.' But I say to you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, so that you may be sons of your Father who is in heaven; for He causes His sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. For if you love those who love you, what reward do you have? Do not even the tax collectors do the same? If you greet only you brothers, what more are you doing than others? Do not even the Gentiles do the same? Therefore you are to be perfect, as your heavenly Father is perfect."
