Things I Learned This Week

While I was in church last night, I pulled the bulletin from this past Sunday out of my bible. I noticed the note that I had written on it. Then, as Dr. T was teaching from Revelation on the letter to the church in Laodicea, he said something that made me write another note. Here are my notes, what Dr. T said and what I thought about it:

Sunday a.m. - Why be afraid of dying? It's like L not wanting to leave the trailer to move into the new house. The trailer was all she, at age 5, had ever known as home. She just couldn't imagine leaving it, had no idea how much better it would be in the house built just for us.

Wednesday p.m. - Real church is chaotic. It's like the home of a family with small children and guests. Some things are planned for and organized, but sometimes wonderful things happen and just take you by surprise. Something is always happening.

  1. Ive been told its when you stop planning that you really start living. I have learned that the hard way. You can't plan out life. No matter the routine of church, something is always churning in the congregation. :)
