What in the world are they thinking? But I guess that's the problem, they're not thinking. Why would anyone do anything to make the problem of minors involved in prostitution worse?
No one in my household knows anything about this. What would I tell them?
I love these courses, and am looking forward to this newest offering. I've complete the first three - just listening to the lectures and the Q&A sessions.
"Oh, I voted for Obama...He's so cool...He's got that swagger...And, that Micheeeeeelle!" When a woman near me said this in a doctor's waiting room recently, I didn't know whether to slap her or start... Well, anyway, I remembered who I am and kept my nose in my Kindle.
Home: NASB, although I've managed to collect quite a number of different translations. This is my choice for reading and gift-giving.
Kindle: KJV and NASB
I went through Bible college with the NIV. But one professor commented that he was surprised that so few students chose the NASB. So, after graduation I bought myself one and have found it to be my favorite.
Church: none for use by members. Members do not bring, and I doubt read, Bibles. I believe this is part of my mission at this church, to encourage Bible reading.
Shovel and clean off the car, hoping the car will be on the correct side of the street when alternate parking rules go back into effect. (Oh, yes, and I did this yesterday while listening to the Ricochet podcast, as well as the Hillsdale podcast about reading Homer, on my new mp3 player tucked secretly under my hat.)
The comments here are so beautiful - truly inspirational.
The original post reminded me of the video 99 Balloons. Please watch it, but have tissue handy. Peace be with you.
Let's sing all four verses! (The Greek anthem has about 100 verses, one of them mentioning George Washington.)
Jeff, I like your phrase "helping our young males thrive." This is a great goal for us as families, churches, and individuals.
Thanks, Troy. That was delightful. Now, I'll go clean my mirrors.
Yes, thanks for the laughs. This is a great place to call it a day. Good night!
Introvert, and I hate meetings. You don't want me at one of yours, because I'm the person who will keep asking, "So, what is the point?"
Zafar, thank you, that is cute!
That's right, Mollie, no Christmas today! But last night and this morning, dozens of Christmas trees were delivered to the church. It is cheaper for the tree lots to give them to us than to dispose of them. Many of the trees will become a huge cave inside the church, inside of which a large Nativity icon will be placed. Others will be arranged outside and covered with lights. Soon florists will bring the unsold poinsettias, which will fill the front of the church. The effect will be magical, as always.
Today's tradition also includes fish for lunch, for the last time until Christmas, thirteen days from now. And, Christmas shopping begins with tomorrow's sales!
When I tried teaching "Oh, how I love Jesus..." to Greek preschoolers, they sang, "Oh, how I love cheeses.." Really, Greek cheese is the best, but I gave up the song.
Merry Christmas! Thank you for the link.
