Part of the homework for this class that I’m taking is to share our thoughts on one of the teachings with others. I figured that this is one of the best ways for me to do that.

My thoughts on the Church is small. I mostly pray for my own Christ Community and the ministries that I know well. And I think that satan is pleased with that. That is scary to think of. I’m trying to work on that.

I know, I agree wholeheartedly, that we all need to be one. How all that will happen I’m not sure.. Are we unified around the right things?? The big Church seems to be asking, “Are we conservative?” which means we believe certain things and seem to be pretty unaccepting of everyone that does our way of life. This is the camp find myself in. And then there is the liberal church that says, “We accept you no matter who you are or what you do.” I struggle with feeling like they are not on the narrow way. Living rightly seems pretty important in the bible.

I’ve taken just one example of the divisions we see still here. And that is only here in the States. Are we centered around Jesus? I’m not sure that we are.

I love to read. I think I was about three when I started learning to read. Reading has always been one of my Mom’s favorite things to teach, and when I was three, they were still asking themselves, “What all can this kid do?” I used to love to sit and read whenever I had the opportunity which meant that someone was willing to sit and turn pages. I think one of my most faithful turners was my grandma. I would sit and read for hours at her house. When I got on computers, there was a time I didn’t read much. The computer allowed me to do so much without help that reading was put on the back burner. The exception to that was when my siblings wanted to borrow my computer. They would turn while they played. But slowly I found ways to read on my computer.? I love being able to read whenever I want, however long I want. I do try to read after all my work is done.

Mom and I are going to the nursing home most weeks we’re in town. We have several friends we go visit. I kind of write a little speech for them. Sometimes that speech ends up on this blog. That didn’t seem to be working this week. I’m still really enjoying these classes that I’m taking. The material is great, and I also like getting to know the people. We were with some of my other family this past. We had three of siblings and their families for dinner on Wednesday. We had a couple of birthdays to celebrate. It is that time of Saturday where all I really want to do is to lose myself in a fun book. But I still have a few things I want to do first. Think I’d better get on to those..

Where I’ve been

February 9, 2019

Where have I been? I was having some problems with my device for about a month, give or take. It was not totally broken, I could do some things. I was just incredibly slow.. I could get through my necessary things for myself and work.. We were having problems with the touchsceen, it was harder to do anything, and it was physically. By the time I would finished with the things I had to do, I was ready to be finished with the computer period.

Besides all this was taking place around the holidays. And we were kind of between here and visiting with family. My sisters and I got together one weekend..

The big news here is that I’ve started kind of a ten month bible school. I’ve talked before about the missions group I love. This is the group that I’ve gone to a couple of their conferences over seas. They’ve started an online school. I think it is supposed to last something like ten months. We’ll have a couple of classes that we listen to whenever we want. They’ve been on topics like forgiveness. We have online discussions about those classes. And then on Thursdays the class gets online together. We alternate between morning and evening because people are from all over the world. That class was more on logistics.
