Bear Each Others Burdens

I don't know about you, but I'm all for becoming a more humble church and Spirit-receptive church... who is with me on this?!?!?!?

Also, while you're here... take a look at THIS blog posting and give me your thoughts. Do you think it's ok to ask that question? If so, how would you ask it appropriately? And if not, why?

Blessings!

  1. I'd have to put that question into the same category as... asking a childless woman if she wants kids someday(when she may have suffered several miscarriages and infertility) or asking someone you don't know if they are "new" to your church when they have attended for 25 yrs. and you have attended for 1 yr.

    I liked how her suggestions for asking questions or making comments still are able to uncover information but without alienating or offending. The Bible calls it wisdom. Our words need to encourage and edify, even in the form of a question : )

  2. I think she made some great points. As parents, we know our kids, so if redirecting a stranger needs to happen while are children are in earshot, than so be it. Most people are genuinely curious, and maybe even interested in adopting themselves.
    Oh - and I loved the video. Posted it on my blog too. <3
