Today, October 26th, is Nick the Geek’s birthday.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, NICK!
(you can find Nick at his blog or on Twitter, if you want to wish him a happy birthday)
I’d like to take this opportunity though to celebrate the whole Church, not just Nick.
Birthday’s are a special time to take a day to recognize and give thanks for the gift of life that God has given us.
Of course, we remember and thank God for his gift of life and new life in Christ every day, but I believe it is good to make a special day of celebration every so often – and yearly seems as good to me as any other.
This blog is about my journey to Rediscover the Church, to find out who they are and just how broad and diverse our family truly is.
With the millions, or even billions, of family members out there, there is no way I could mention them all by name on their birthdays (I simply don’t know all their names… yet) and besides, I’d have to do a birthday celebration on this blog every day.
So today, as some of us celebrate that God has given Nick one more year of life, I would like to you to join with me in celebrating the birthdays of the whole Church.
To God be the glory for the life he gives us and the wonderful gift of salvation through his son, Jesus Christ!
Happy birthday, everyone, whenever your birthday might be. I’m sure glad that you’re part of the family!

I take it that the greetings and the cake are for me too? lol, thanks Peter.
Thanks, but I'm not sure where you got your date at. You are off by a day. It is interesting because you posted it on my birthday so I'm thinking Typo. I've found another typo, "So today, as some of us celebrate that God has given Nick one more year of life," Only some are happy I got another year? I think not.
Ok so seriously, What a wonderful idea of remembering the lives of all our Christian sibs. Happy birthday to all my Christian brothers and sisters, and if it isn't your birthday have a very merry unbirthday.
I got the date from my calendar… I must have been tired because I forgot that I was writing at a few minutes before midnight PST so I needed to add a day to get the date of your actual birthday.
That and I was also in the middle of a Stargate SG-1 marathon and finding it hard to concentrate on mundane things like…. everything over than the show.
Happy Birthday to Nick… I'd love a piece of cake to go with my coffee!
Happy birthday Nick- I can’t leave a comment on your blog so this shall have to do!
Also always happy to celebrate the Church. 🙂
Happy Birthday, Nick.
Thanks for celebrating on my B-day, Peter. I felt very special.
See? Annoying little brother…
Happy Birthday, anyway. And very nice post, Peter.
Thanks Peter (sniff)! I love celebrating my birthday six months in advance! Can I have a present?
Of course you can have a present… just probably not from me!
Happy Birthday, Nick. Yes, I keep telling you this. And yes, I’m just that nice a guy.
oh happy day…
