Did you know that in his 1990 book, The New Millennium, Pat Robertson predicted the end of the world for 29 April, 2007? That's only five months away.
I see by your church calendar that you don't like suggestions for 1 April for April Fools Day. Maybe you could make 29 April a New Millennium April Fools Day to honor all the fools who make end times predictions? It falls on a Sunday next year, so we can take the Monday off to celebrate that we are all still alive.
btw; Pat might have decided he's wrong. He is scheduled to come to Virginia that day to "rededicate America to God" at Jamestown. It's the 400th anniversary of the Jamestown colony.
- I regret having forgotten about this excellent suggestion. It should have been implemented, but I only rediscovered it after I made 28 May "We're Still Here Day" to commemorate another fool's End Times prediction. (JT, 15 Jan 2010)
