As I walked the streets of my small midwest town praying for the people and the churches of the town, the words came to me, "Make bitter waters sweet." Those words made no sense at the time. Surely if those words actually came from God they weren't about me. I, the pastor's wife, had a life that other women in my church envied. Shortly after that, my life fell apart and the bitterness that lurked beneath the surface came to the top. But God did not leave me there. Just as He can make crooked paths straight, raise valleys, and lower mountains, so also could He make bitter waters sweet. This blog contains bits and pieces and large chunks of my ongoing journey from bitter waters to sweet.

"Deb and I believe, with our whole hearts, that the battle facing the Christian faith today is not the American deficit, not creationism, not making sure women stay silent in the church but recognizing a specific, serious sin in our midst. This sin is the abuse of children and women in the church, and, in particular, child sexual abuse." --Dee
He's so deperate to get good reviews to overshadow the bad review that I linked a few posts ago that he's bribing people. For some reason that limbo chant is going through my brain. "How low can you go? How low can you go?"
Please excuse me while I scratch this Apologetics itch.
It has nothing to do with Driscoll, Wilson, SGM, misogyny, CBMW, or any other of my usual topics.
I'm really only posting it here for myself and for being able to find it again quickly when I have more time to read it all the way through.
I like C. S. Lewis. I'm gaining an appreciation for Apologetics. And I have a sizable concern over the terribly dogmatic nature that many Christians have on viewing Creation.
