    It seems you would have to see the color in order for the cross-connection to your smellivision to work on various colors. If blue and brown look the same to you, then they would smell the same to you.


    Maybe you have a Brain Rumor?

    Are you into the "Modern Hymn Movement" hymns? Some of them are downright inspiring.
    MelMak calls himself a modern hymnwriter!

    I just remembered that.

    Sorry, Sunshine!

    Headlines the next day read, "Artie chokes 3 for a dollar at local supermarket!"

    They argue, he keeps insisting it's true, so she looks on the receipt and finds the phone number for the store. She calls the store, and asks to speak to the manager of green beans. They receptionist asks, "which one - fresh, frozen or canned?"

    That works, too!

    She asked how it was, and he said "well, they don't sing hymns, they sing choruses".

    She asked "what's a chorus".

    He said, "well, if I say 'the cow got into the corn', that's a hymn -- if I say 'the cow, the cow, the brown cow, the brown brown cow, got into the corn, into the golden corn, into the corn, got through the fence, got into the corn, the corn, the corn, got into the corn' - that's a chorus".

She attends a church that has the entertainment up front every week, and she has said that because she doesn't know any hymns, she can only tell the difference between a hymn and a non-hymn by whether everybody is singing or not.

    This type of thing is NOT corporate worship. It is entertainment, pure and simple, and not very good entertainment at that.

    I have a friend who's a pastor in a Bible Church, and we used to visit occasionally. They had a "praise band" leading the music, and they did some of that 7-11 music. I hated it. But I noticed that while they were singing that stuff, and we're standing there, MANY people would just be standing staring at the screens (where the words are projected) and not singing --- but when they would sing the occasional hymn, EVERYBODY would be singing.

    I asked Scot - my pastor friend - "why doesn't your 'praise team' see that people are hungry for the hymns", and he would shrug and say "I try to tell them".

    The 'praise team' would be up there, really "getting into" the 7-11 stuff, but not many people were following. If you don't have followers, you're not a leader!

    Yeah, I think I shared that our Church (where I'm serving now) was mostly old people (17 of them) when I got there, and I figured we'd be stuck being an "old people's church", but we'd be the best old people's church we could be. Strangely, we started having young couples and families visit, and they would write on their visitors cards "LOVE the hymns!" so, there's that

    And good for those that are moving away from the banal 7-11 stuff that is so prevalent.
