elect

I'm not even 48 hours away from taking membership vows at my church, and what did i get in the mail today but a letter saying that now I have to work in the nursery in 3 weeks! WHAT?! How'd that get snuck in there?

And get this: guess who didn't get any letter in the mail. Andrea. That's right--the one who really likes kids; the one who scored high on mercy and service for her spiritual gifts; the one who actually wants to work in the nursery.

I, however, scored a 1 on mercy. 1. And i think i cheated at that.

Bwahahahahaha! You are literally "joining the club".

But since we believe in predestination, you can't say "no" to them. Dang tulip.

Sounds like a dumb requirement to me. Church is not about a bunch of requirements, it's about God. Don't they know that?

Welcome to the miserable world of having to do the nursery, not just once, but 4 TIMES A YEAR!!!!!

Yuck, I eventually quit nursery duty. Other people's snotty nosed, puffy, red-faced kids disgust me. It was making me not want kids of my own so I threw in the towel. You could try that excuse.

you do everything in your power to honor
your Designer/Architect as well as your audience.

Dang, I seen that comment on another blog, too. It's like some form of mass advertising through posting ambiguously complimentary comments. Wierd.

Anyways, I just wanted to say that I wandered here, and dig your blog. Nothing can be more noble than pursuing knowledge of our Creator, although I don't know specifically how RTS does it. Anyways...

Blog On!!

hmm....so you became a little presbyterian after all. We Baptists, not believing in predestination...to the nursery or otherwise...will still give you the CHOICE to serve the wee little rug rats.......I mean blessed children of God!
