Do you have doubts?  It's okay, we all do.  :o)

I invite you to read this article -

Mark 9:24 says --

Immediately the boy's father exclaimed, "I do believe; help me overcome my unbelief!"

See... you're not the only one.  ;op


Great article!

Here’s a Twilight Zone-type premise for you. What if surgeons never got to work on humans, they were instead just endlessly in training, cutting up cadavers? What if the same went for all adults – we only got to practice at simulated versions of our jobs? Lawyers only got to argue mock cases, for years and years. Plumbers only got to fix fake leaks in classrooms. Teachers only got to teach to videocameras, endlessly rehearsing for some far off future. Book writers like me never saw our work put out to the public – our novels sat in drawers. Scientists never got to do original experiments; they only got to recreate scientific experiments of yesteryear. And so on.

Rather quickly, all meaning would vanish from our work. Even if we enjoyed the activity of our job, intrinsically, it would rapidly lose depth and relevance. It’d lose purpose. We’d become bored, lethargic, and disengaged.

In other words, we’d turn into teenagers.

The Amish of Email

Ha, ha, ha.  I loved this blog entry.  It reminds me of my cousin Stephanie.  (She has email but rarely uses it.  Well she reads what I send but she never responds via email... I usually get a phone call instead.)

It so interesting when a person decides to be different from the people and the culture around them.  Some people take it all in stride, and yet others take it personally or think that you are judging their choice to be like everyone else.   I have seen it in the stay at home mom vs the working mom, the public school vs home schooling, institutional church vs organic church, Facebook user vs non FB user, and now email user vs non-email user.  :o)

I myself love email.  I love how you can communicate with another person, send a message, ask a question, and the other person can answer when they have the time.  It is a very convenient way to communicate about simple things.  BUT it will never take the place a phone call or face to face visit.  <3
