I’ve been writing down ideas for blog posts on sticky notes as I think of them, but somehow the notes always disappear! Now I’ve got time to sit down and write, but I have no idea what I was going to write about. Actually, that’s quite appropriate, given the current title of this blog.
In truth, I do remember one thing that I made a note of. Thom Hartmann mentioned on the (local) radio that a certain libertarian politician thinks paper money is unconstitutional. That intrigued me — why would someone think that?
Well, after searching online for more information, I’ve decided I’m no longer interested. There are, apparently, a number of people and organizations that believe paper money is unconstitutional in the U.S. Their reasons are not particularly exciting.
So, here are a couple of things that I am interested in right now.
1. Detoxing from Church. I’m still definitely a Jesus follower. I just find that I’m less and less interested in the institutional church. My husband and I are seriously considering a detox. The author of these articles details the process his family went through in detoxing from what we know as church.
2. On the other hand, Pastor Becca’s blog entry about her United Methodist Annual Conference tells about something that I do value in the traditional church. Does this “tingly feeling” only happen inside churches? Probably not — but I don’t imagine it’s quite the same, either.
