Flip-Flop Revelation

I love my sandals!  I am a "flip-flop girl" through and through!  And even living here in Vermont, I've been known to wear my flip-flops until at least November!  When the snow flies, I very reluctantly put them away. But I take them out again as soon in the spring as possible. I've been wearing them now for over 3 weeks, yes, even when the snow fell on April 26th!

An Open Letter to Those Who Have Been Hurt by the Church

Day after day I read or hear reports about those who have been deeply hurt by the church. I read blogs where an extensive list is given about all that is wrong with the church. I hear of people who were brought up in the church and how much they feel it has damaged their adult life. They blame the church for all that is wrong in their lives. I am always deeply saddened to read and hear these things - saddened for both the church and the people hurt.

The following is my response to all those who have been hurt and "damaged" by the church:

Dear Ones:

"Blessed are you, Simon son of Jonah, for this was not revealed to you by man, but by my Father in heaven. And I tell you that you are Peter, and on this rock I will build my church...."
