Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Science Fiction

Any Science Fiction fans out there?


Many years ago I was an avid reader of Sciene Fiction - the old styles greats like Isaac Asimov & Ray Bradbury. Then I ran out of good stuff and started reading rubbish and lost interest. Then it seemed Science Fiction turned into Science Fantasy with magic & spells. The only ones I read were Terry Pratchett's Discworld series and Anne McCarffrey's Pern series.


Just recently I've come back to the genre and found the "Wool" series by Hugh Howey (Wool, Shift & Dust). Brilliant, I found them gripping, just like the old times.


Another one that was good is 'Proxima' by Stephen Baxter. Not as good as 'Wool' (IMO) but a good read. There is sequel (Ultima) but I haven't read yet.


Anybody read these, and if so what did you think of them?


Any suggestions for other good classic type Sci-Fi?

I'm not a reader, but I like sci-fi moving+talking pictures, especially those that don't replace the story with special effects.
