Too Good To Not Share - "We Didn't Start The Fire"

Billy Joel's #1 hit song, "We Didn't Start The Fire," is making the rounds as a Flash presentation by Ye Li, a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Chicago's Graduate School of Business:

It's a great collection of photos and images of 40 years of modern history set to music that goes by in just a few minutes.

The key lines in the song for me are:

"We didn't start the fire
No, we didn't light it
But we tried to fight it."

Did I try to fight the fire this week? This month?

When I was in Honolulu, I learned that the Calvary Chapel has it's Thanksgiving dinner at the church, not for church members as do many other churches, but for those to whom they're ministering.

Did you try to fight the fire at any time during the past year?

For the lyrics:

Mark 13:7. And when ye shall hear of wars and rumours of wars, be ye not troubled: for such things must needs be; but the end shall not be yet.

Mark 16:15. And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.

Luke 14:
12. Then said he also to him that bade him, When thou makest a dinner or a supper, call not thy friends, nor thy brethren, neither thy kinsmen, nor thy rich neighbours; lest they also bid thee again, and a recompence be made thee.
13. But when thou makest a feast, call the poor, the maimed, the lame, the blind:
14. And thou shalt be blessed; for they cannot recompense thee: for thou shalt be recompensed at the resurrection of the just.
