Church Stuff

Last Sunday, the church I go to had the official opening service for the new building, which we are all very grateful for. Here's a picture.

On a largely unrelated note, we were studying Galatians 5:13-26 in homegroup last night. Someone commented that some of the "acts of the sinful nature" in v19-20 weren't too common today, giving witchcraft as an example. However, the word translated "witchcraft" is φαρμακεια - pharmakeia, from which we get the English words pharmacy, pharmacology, pharmaceuticals and so on.

Needless to say, I'm not a JW, just thought it was an amusing etymological thing...
