Well, God's sense of humor is wonderful; I post about the glories of Spring, and this is what we get. Glorious snow; serves me right.
Spent time this weekend at a "Men for Christ" rally at my church. The brownies and coffee were excellent--John M., you missed out--and even a man as dense as I was able to pick out a pattern going to the "break-out" sessions. Ministering to paroled convicts? Don't act as if the sin nature doesn't apply to them. Ministering to couples at a crisis pregnancy center? Don't forget that bowing down to sin got them where they are today--they need the Gospel. Ministering to others? Don't forget that....you know, I'm seeing a pattern here. It's like the Gospel is central to life--oh, and that's the theme of the closing session, too.
Even a dense guy like myself can start to figure that out. Lots of wonderful opportunities out there to serve Him. One fun one; you can love your wife better by stopping snoring. And how to do that? Lose weight--excess fat can vibrate in the nasal passages.
If you wonder why it's important for men and women to have separate teaching from time to time, think about how men would take that one with other men, vs. how they would take it if their wives were next to them.
And for a bit of fun, my family turned on all the lights in the house at 8pm on Saturday in honor of this. The whole thing is really surreal; if all those lights in the city are really unnecessary, why not turn them off all the time and save the money? Of course, if they really cared for the environment, they wouldn't get all that good press.
