A Letter to the Church

An anonymous letter you should read:

We do not ask for your acceptance of our sins any more than we accept yours. We simply ask for the same support, love, guidance, and most of all hope that is given to the rest of your congregation. We are your brothers and sisters in Christ. We are not what we shall be, but thank God, we are not what we were. Let us work together to see that we all arrive safely home.

Confessions of a Woman Who Didn’t Like Theology

Ashley Haupt:

While I’ve grown immensely in my understanding of the importance of biblical truth, the stubborn fact remains: love for theology and doctrine doesn’t come naturally to me. It’s an acquired taste.

But why should you care? Perhaps I lost you at “I don’t like theology.” Nevertheless, I’m convinced you should care, and here’s why: I represent members of your church. Maybe a large segment, maybe a smaller one, but I guarantee they’re out there. With this reality in mind, l’d like to offer three insights from an unnatural theology lover.

    So I got all excited to watch a Calvin & Hobbes strip turned to animation, but the video is private. Any chance you could put up a link that works?

      Yeah, I’m not sure what’s going on there. I’ve seen some statements on YouTube that it’s likely being deleted (not sure Bill Waterson asked for it to be removed maybe?). For now, here’s where you can watch it: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zHjCE040aYU
