Thursday night has rescued me from the abyss. Very nice evening with the girl I love, including but not limited to bacon wrapped grilled shrimp stuffed with cheese and jalapeno’s, a frozen beverage or two (how do you drink frozen stuff?) and watching One Night With The King, the story of Esther, which happens to be the focus of this months series of lessons.
So, all is well. But I really should back away from the keyboard because of stuff like this. Unfreakin’ believable.
Texas Baptist leaders are working to block Republican Gov. Rick Perry’s plan to speed the approval process for 18 new coal-fired power plants â€” an unusual move because the largest national Baptist organization officially opposes environmental activism.
Now, call me deaf, dumb and blind but I have read through that old book and I’ve never, ever read the part where Jesus tells me to go out and spread the good news of environmental activism. Pisses me off. If our church is contributing to this organization, it will stop today or I’ll find a new group of believers to worship with. Ideals are like that sometimes, creating tension and conflict unless you compromise your beliefs, watering them down in order to get along. There will be no compromise for me on this one.
