I didn’t get to this last week, when I did see an interesting discussion on a French news show about women from the Ukraine who protest the inequity they see in French culture particularly with respect to the DSK affair. The women are scantily clad and what little they’re wearing is very sexy, the standard French maid get up. The discussion revolved around the ethics and effectiveness of using sex to get attention about women’s rights. The whole issue is intriguing and complex.

I hope I’m wrong, but I think I’ve seen the after effects of theft. My phone went missing on Wednesday and Friday my Nikon camera “walked off.” Neither item is at home or school. I hate to think anyone at school took it, but students have reported items stolen, I now found out. If I had known this was a problem, I’d have been more careful. I think they don’t want to admit such problems to the Americans as the Chinese lose face. I don’t care so much about the phone, but the camera. Quelle horreur! I love that camera and really am not in the mood to buy a new one. Then there’s that deep sinking feeling one gets when you’re the victim of a crime.

Another new thing I saw this week was my friend’s church. They have a service with lots of songs and PowerPoints. I was surprised that the former leader was from the U.K. and the new presiding elder seems to be from Scotland. I sort of assume that most Europeans have left Christianity. That’s the picture one gets from the BBC dramas. (I know TV shouldn’t be my main source.) It was an interesting experience, but just didn’t seem spiritual enough for me. The sermon with the PowerPoints reminded me too much of business and school. Still it was good to see another slice of Guangzhou.

“Slow down and take the time to really see. Take a moment to see what is going on around you right now, right where you are. You may be missing something wonderful.”

  1. Sorry about the thefts – I hope you recover your possessions. I don’t know how you got the idea that Christianity was moribund in Europe. Why not come and see? Yes, we see a great many more muslims than we used to, and many others are only token Christians, but the churches are still full.

    • I’ve met so many people from France and the UK celebrate Christmas and Easter culturally but just don’t believe and they’re surprised by Americans who do. I do want to visit Europe again soon.
