I'm a daughter of the King - a born-again Christian since I was 7 years old. I've been married since 1985 to the love of my life who has had a mid-life change of career from a computer software engineer in the audio industry to a pastor at an independent Baptist church. I'm a mom of 4 miracle babies - all prayed for hard and worked for after battling infertility. We live on Long Island a few blocks from the beautiful shores of the Long Island Sound and love to spend time sailing on that Sound and beyond. I'm a homeschooling mom and a college mom (!) and work part time out of the house (at church, so I can take my kids) as well as working on training a horse a few days a week. I love my life and thank God every day for allowing me to live it.
My life verse is Jeremiah 29:11 where God says "For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope." God has had a plan for me since before I was born and it amazes me constantly to see what that plan is at it unfolds before me.
Good read on another blog - Proselytism and an argument from the world
One of the books I posted on yesterday was Holy Subversion by Trevin Wax and I'm really looking forward to reading it. Today on Trevin's blog, he has a response to a person who left a comment on a blog post discussing proselytism. It's a very good read for us because we can see a well thought out argument against the idea that Christians shouldn't try to "force" other people to believe and we should allow all beliefs to exist because all beliefs are equal. I recently got into a discussion about this with someone and I found it wonderful to read how another believer addresses the issue. So read it today when you get a chance. It will only take a few moments but look at it as a teaching time. I learned a lot and I hope you will too.
