Today’s randomness

Learned today: It is possible that there are countries that not only do not exist anymore, but I’ve never heard their previous names.  I learned all of the countries in Africa in middle school in the 1989/1990.  Sometime between 1968 and 1989, the country formerly known as Dahomey changed its name to Benin.

Interesting name of the day: Mr. Dough Jones.

Long church name of the day (I get a kick out of church names that are so long there’s no hope of remembering the whole thing): Church of One Lord, One Faith, One Baptism. Ephs. 4:5.  It’s really the reference to the verse that makes the name.  (While I don’t share these beliefs, I actually think it’s a beautiful church name without the verse citation.)
