Sweet! That other thread was really long. I'm so glad for the new year, and for coming back to the Lord. I just went to the Lord's day meeting on Sunday and the testimony from the training was so wonderful! The training was on 2 Peter, about how when we are going through hard times, it is so we can gain Christ! To just give all our anxieties to Him, and to lean on Him, and that's what I've been doing. I've been going through a lot lately, what with my marriage, my health, and now my housing. It's a lot to deal with, and sometimes it's hard not to worry and just to put it all on Him.

Hi All!

I'm so glad to find a tribe! I feel lost sometimes as a crunchy christian!
Glad to know I'm not the only one!


Since I'm new I'll introduce myself...
I'm a brand new ministerial student, Called to be a deacon in my church. I'm really wondering what God's plan for my ministry will be, and where He will lead me.

I'm a SAHM with a DH and 1 DS working on dc #2!

I'm crunchy and I'm also a seminary graduate (Master of Divinity). I am quite progressive in my theology and take a decidedly social justice bent in my views. My area of focus has primarily been Womanist Theology (feminist too, but mostly womanist), Black Theology, and other liberation theologies. I'm politically quite liberal.

It's great to be here and I can't wait to get to know you all!

Hey all! I'm a Christian, may I join in?

I live in Northern Colorado and have one 6.5 mo DS. DH and I have been Christians "forever" I guess you could say. We were both raised Lutheran but we have been attending evangelical and community-type churches. The church we are currently attending doesn't mesh with some of our beliefs so we are searching again - I hate the searching process. Right now we are looking at a United Methodist church...does anyone have any experience with that denomination? What are the best and worst things about it?

I just became a SAHM about a month ago and am still adjusting. When DH comes home every night it is just fine but Monday night he was out of town for work and by Tuesday midday I was going crazy. I think I also need prayer for patience.

Hope everyone is having a great new year!

to you all! (hope i didn't forget anyone!!!)

for the mama interested in methodist churches, nope, sorry i don't know about that denom. i grew up lutheran as well (was confirmed, married etc in the church i grew up in) we now go to a church of God- several thigns are different, like Baptisms- you are Baptized after you've asked Jesus to be your sacior- which a baby cannot do we worship with singing and clapping, and dancing around is fine, as well as tambourines etc. we have a praise team, that sings and leads every week (i'm in it) whereas i grew up in choir (we are starting a choir back up incidentally, but the praise team will still be the main singing, the choir will be special occasions and such if i'm not mistaken.) there is speaking in tongues etc, which is somethign definately different from how i grew up. there are several other differences as well, but this is HOME.

anyways, we've had an eventful past few days. i had to rush dh to the er yesterday, he got stung by a bee.

last time he was stung was in 2002 was by 2 bees, and it nearly killed him. he was in the icu on a vent for several days etc. thankfully, i was able to bring him home, and he was pumped fuill of enough benadryl epinephrine etc that he didn't have a rebound reaction like last time, so i was able to keep him home, PRAISE THE LORD! there are several other things going on, some good, some couldn't be further froim good at the current time, but i'm hoping that all will turn out according to His will. my mom will be returning to full-time hours next week, and so hopefully she'll start having a little money to be able to start paying some of her bills again. my mil is still in a cast, but she has a walker now, so she is getting around a lot better, and she's been able to go back to work ft as well. so many other thigns, but i gotta go get dinner put out so i can bathe the kids and we can get our clothes laid out for church in the am. i pray all are doing well, and will ttys.

BarefootScientist, I went to a Methodist university. I don't know how closely they follow the founder John Wesley's ideas, but he was very passionate preacher and would be horrified at the consumerism in the world today...Anyway, I know George W. professes to be a Methodist, but they've told him they do not believe in the Iraq war...
