Discernment has been completed; we wait until next spring to homestead. I opened the issue to our local church community, and too many people love my dear husband to want to spend the winter worrying about him! So we are looking for a living situation on road, with telephone.
But we are sure we are called to live the country life; it is not just the continuation of our crazy seventies coming-of-age. The world is changing, many of thee know this. Christians must stand up to be counted, as Christians, as standing for a better Way, as standing for Christ and God’s creation. The materialism of modern life is not the way of Christ. He had nowhere to even lay His head unless it was given by a friend.
I am going to state this plainly, as I should:
We are not capitalists. We are pacifists. We are not liberal, nor conservative. We are Traditional, Plain, and Anglican. We are orthodox in our theology and Bible interpretation. We are not going to pursue careers or rise in the organization.
I am going to hold with my policy of granting comment to other Christians. If you are going to tell me that prayer is wrong and doesn’t work; that my faith is juvenile, egotistical or fanatical; if you don’t believe in the Bible:
Comment elsewhere. Start your own blog. There are lots of agnostics and atheists who will let you slam christians all you want.
This is not the place for that.
This is a place for sisters (and brothers) in the faith. Anyone is welcome to read, but keep your comments uplifting and helpful. I will not have my blog turned into a catfight.
Unity and peace are not achieved by hateful words, blame-placing and fighting. We are not here to work out your disappointments in the church or with me!
