Same to you!
God Bless to all in this first week of Oz-tober.
You know, last week my mom was watching this pastor on TV and she feel asleep and was commenting of how boring and monotone hos voice sounded. She said that it sounded like Fred Rogers, lol. She was telling me about how she had a collage professor that sounded just like Fred Rogers too and how was was just thinking for him to come on and get the lesson over with and how time would seem to move slowly in his class, lol! Now, my mom likes Fred Rogers, but she said that he can put you to sleep, heh! At one point my mom just left the room and I was like so, he was so boring that you just left and she started laughing. Oddly enough Fred Rogers was a Presbyterian Pastor, heh!
Aw lol, well Mr. Rogers did kinda fit that image of the soft spoken easy going preacher. The way I always saw it, Mr. Rogers Neighborhood was intended to counterbalance the manic excitement kids experienced from Sesame Street, lol.
Hence the crossovers between the two.
I grew up Baptist, going to church every Sunday, and Wednesday. Here lately though, I'm not as faithful as I used to be. It's mostly because I'm not a member of a church, even though I'dlike to be. We only have one car, and if the fiance is working, then we don't have a ride to church. Anyway, just wanted to say hey.
Have a great day
HI Charlotte, nice to meet you I grew up in a Baptist church too. Although, at the moment I'm attending a presbyterian one. Do you stil lattend a Baptist church? just wondering XP
Yes, when we go to church, we go to a Baptist church. I beleive that we are going to try to make church more often. Thanks for asking.
Well maybe there can be a way we can work things out so you can have the car when I'm working. I just thought you didn't like going to church without me. If not I will try harder to make sure that you and the kids are in church more. Love you!
I don't like going without you, but I think that needs to be one of the things we need to change.
Love you too, darling
I could not agree with you more I think that if at least one of us is in church on any givin Sunday(or Wensday for that matter) Our relationship will surly grow. Closer to God and to each other.
Hello, friend! Welcome!
A belated thanks, heralde! You are a kind one!
Well, I had hoped to spend more time on the forum tonight, but my husband is so needing ALL of my attention just now (the Arkansas Razorbacks won tonight after a two game losing streak, and there is like too much joy about the house now, screaming and yelling and whatnot ; of course whenever I'm doing what I want to do, hubs has other plans for me ). I so much love him!
Here is a bright ray of words of wisdom: Kind words and works we give will in memory live, and a great scripture reference for this principle is Proverbs 16:24.
Until I can find the time to visit again, I want you all to love one another. I leave you with my love.
I myself Am a catholic; and I always find it stupid about people saying I am Sterotype "unholy person" because I like Heavy metal. To my satisfaction there is Plenty of good christian stuff out there. So tell 'em that!
yes...I shall tell em that. Except...I think em already knows that.
Em: "sure do"
Being into Heavy Metal does not make you unholy. What matters is how you treat other people.
Well the in the Independent Baptist "Religon" Heavy Metal, and every other type of music is frowned on. We take the verse (and when I say we I mean them) "Come out from among them and be ye seperate..." and the idea that when you become a Christian that you should become a new creatcer and old things should pass away. The churchs U have belonged to have nipcked on music, long hair somking drinking, and watching TV as a lot of things that would make us seperate.
Personaly, however I feel that God has to convict a person of whatever "sin" is in question, and not base what you change in your life based on just what you hear from the pulpit. You have a personal relationship with God, and by reading his word and talking with him he will show you how he wants you to live your life.
I look back at some of the messages and ideas I had as a young preacher boy, and think to myself what was I doing. I would preach that people whould need to worry more about the outwardly things we do, then preach about the matters of the heart of the beleiver. I realize now that to have a "Closer Walk with Jesus" is more inprotaint then what type of music you like.
What if it is like Christian Rock?
I do agree with you there. I myself find music the easiest way to express my spirituality. I even saw a Documentary video of a Genuine christian monk; singing of all things the song "Number of the Beast"; Proving that it's not what you do; but your relationship with "The Big G" that matters.
