To get the full value of joy you must have someone to divide it with. Imagine how much happier you’d be if you gave away half of your salary every month. Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you’re […]The Importance of Giving
“It is reported commonly that there is fornication among you, and such fornication as is not so much as named among the Gentiles, that one should have his father’s wife.” 1 Corinthians 5:1 KJV Paul, led of the Holy Spirit, wrote to the Corinthians to address a sin problem. First, we see here that sin […]What is Commonly Reported Among You?
Realistic expectations and changes in marriage
Did you know that the person you married is not perfect? If you have not realized it yet, you will soon. That’s okay though because you aren’t either. Sometimes we get married and think that we have married the perfect person and that love is all we need to make this thing work out. Your spouse is perfect for YOU. However, neither of you are perfect humans. Trials will come, tempers will flare, frustrations will occur. If you hold onto unrealistic views of your spouse that they are perfect, the first time there’s a letdown or misunderstanding, you will be heartbroken and can even come to the point of resenting your spouse and questioning your marriage. How you handle these issues is the most important thing to focus on. Remember that while your spouse is not perfect, they love you, and you must communicate…

Matthew 6 1-8.
Take heed that ye do not your alms before men, to be seen of them: otherwise ye have no reward of your Father which is in heaven.
Therefore when thou doest thine alms, do not sound a trumpet before thee, as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the streets, that they may have glory of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But when thou doest alms, let not thy left hand know what thy right hand doeth:
That thine alms may be in secret: and thy Father which seeth in secret himself shall reward thee openly.
And when thou prayest, thou shalt not be as the hypocrites are: for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and in the corners of the streets, that they may be seen of men. Verily I say unto you, They have their reward.
But thou, when thou prayest, enter into thy closet, and when thou hast shut thy door, pray to thy Father which is in secret; and thy Father which seeth in secret shall reward thee openly.
But when ye pray, use not vain repetitions, as the heathen do: for they think that they shall be heard for their much speaking.
Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, before ye ask him.

Paper Vandervis used often misrepresented: MoH
Lee Vandervis. PHOTO: ODT FILESA document Dunedin city councillor Lee Vandervis relied on to argue against Covid-19 vaccine passes was revised by the Ministry of Health because of its use — or misuse — by anti-vaccination groups.
The ministry had told health professionals in mid-November that, when there was high vaccination coverage, transmission of the disease was “more likely to occur from a vaccinated than an unvaccinated individual”.
Version 2.0 had no such phrase, although it continued to argue denying access to healthcare on the basis of vaccination status would be unacceptable.
Cr Vandervis, who was served a trespass notice this week after he tried to attend a council meeting without a vaccine pass, suggested the council had fostered misconceptions about transmission rates and had mischaracterised the Pfizer vaccine’s effectiveness.

What has Dunedin got to show for its ballooning debt, other than ballooning rates increases always many times the rate of inflation?
Ballooning DCC staff numbers? and what else?
We should promote local businesses, stop the ludicrous spending, stop the $60 million George st/Exchange ‘surface treatments’ which is code for turning the City Centre into another cycleway, stop the $10 million park and ride experiment and the other $10 million for ‘way-finding’ carparks instead of making them, stop colouring our roads, reverse the recent massive increase in DCC staff numbers, and then there are another 100+ ways to save money as below:
