Well, this has been a very interesting day...it's been "eat out" day for me. I had lunch with some folks from the "traditional" church I used to attend before coming to VBCC, and they were telling me about the special speaker they had from Germany (I know they told me his name, but I can't remember it at the moment). Anyway, his message, apparently, was all about the house church movement in Europe and how big the whole house church thing is getting. His three main points were (and I about fell over when I heard this) living intentionally, living relationally, and living generously. I had to tell them that this is the same kind of thing I've been hearing from God for the last few months, especially the intentional part. I swear, you'd think God were trying to tell me something!! I plan to get a tape of the service and listen for myself--I expect it to be very interesting indeed. I truly hope that this message is taken to heart by the folks there, but I know how hard it can be for a "faith" church to get hold of something like this.....
I just got back from dinner at my friend Devon's place. We used to work together and he's a very interesting individual. I also got to meet a bunch of his friends and they were a lot of fun. I think it was the best fun a girl could have with a room full of gay men!! My hair smells like smoke, but what the heck......
Hey, Kevin, if you find someone to pay you to write blogs all day, see if they'll pay me to read them all day......
Oh, yeah, one last thing before I head to bed...I was talking to one of the ladies in the aforementioned church group, and she said something that was both amusing and disturbing. I was telling her how I began listening to this really cool "secular" radio station that plays a lot of groups that I like, such as U2, Rubyhorse, U2, Lifehouse, U2....you get the idea. Anyway, she says to me that it's OK to listen to secular music for "educational purposes" (i.e.; to become "relevant"), but it was dangerous to get to enjoying it too much. Do people really still have that "if it's not fun, it's not sin; but if it's fun, you're sinning" attitude?
Hi, I'm Debi. Once in a while I have a thought and I like to write it down before it goes away. This is where I write it.
