I think when you meet with close friends just once a year, it’s important to understand that some stay just about the same and others have changed, and it’s important to be accepting of both. I think I’ve changed a lot when it comes to theological beliefs, but I’m still the most sensitive one, and I fear sometimes I may express things I should just keep to myself. Thankfully, they are a forgiving bunch.
It’s a sad springtime in Texas as I really didn’t see a decent patch of bluebonnets during our drive out to Abilene.
I won the first game of bowling, and I just thought it was important to note, as I was an intramural co-champion with the namesake of the scholarship.
One interesting conversation we had was discussion how many college friends, five total I think, have decided to come out of the closest. Considering we all attended a small Southern Baptist college, most thought it was a bit surprising.
Speaking of that sensitive topic, I ran across this CNN article that I thought was well balanced looking at both sides homosexuality and the evangelical take on it. I understand how evangelicals believe homosexuality is a sin, but I don’t think their belief or interpretation of scripture is based on hate, and I guess a lot of that comes from me knowing so many of them. But I also see how homosexuals feel that they have no choice in their sexual preference, that they are born that way, that God made them this way, and when they are being told that the all loving God made them in such a way that their way of being is an undeniable sin and God hates them for being who they are, then they can feel hated. Overall, I think the world function better without the use or the word ‘hate’.
I heard a local church has hired Disney as a consultant to help design their children area in hopes to boost attendance.
I see a lot of Super Mario Bob-ombs painted in the area, and I actually think it’s kinda cool.
My wife has been concerned with my sleep apnea for about the last three years, I thought it has gotten better since my surgery and weight loss. However, I shared a room with a friend this weekend and he said he was seriously concerned that I was going to stop breather, that I was taking a breath about once every thirty or so seconds and grasping for air. I may have been motivated to get it checked out, but I’d be damned if I’m going to wear some kind of mask to bed.
