Time off

I'm taking a few days off and hoping to spend some of it on retreat. The praying kind. Some time to read, maybe write, pray, sleep. Whatever. Of course, it's the "whatever" that both worries me and excites me.

The weather here in the moutains is so wonderful, I can't imagine living anywhere else. The prospect of that is more than a little disconcerting, yet I know that I well may have to re-locate because of job stuff if I want to come very far out of the closet. Oh, what a wonderful thought!
Many have written about the death of Jerry Falwell. I don't really believe in "hell" as he would have preached, so I'd better be prepared to meet him in the next life. I do believe in a merciful and just God. So, I can only hope Mr. Falwell is dwelling in paradise with lots of queer, black, hispanic, democratic, liberal, left wing saints and angels. I'll bet he will be surprized!
Addendum: I've read that Falwell had already planned for a transition of power in his "empire:" to his sons. Now that fits with "American values," eh? What a sad, controlling gesture.

What else would you expect from a sad, controlling excuse of a man?!

Hey Bear...

Can I come with you!! It is raining and miserable here, not to mention it is cold too...

Be well and enjoy.

I wonder what God is doing to him. I Mr. Farwell is getting some clarity.

The message of Matthew 25 is that come Judgment Day, EVERYbody is surprised to find themselves judged as they are, and that is both sheep AND goats.

I presume that applies to liberals and conservatives as well.

The Rev F is just getting there a little earlier than the rest of us...

Hmmmm CONTROL. Isn't that what religion attempts to do? Isn't that religion's job?
