quotingquiverfull

by Nancy Campbell from Above Rubies - We Dare Not Keep Our Mouths ShutEditor's note: If you take all of Nancy's various advice you'd be so confused at this point considering many of her postings tell us to stay sweet and keep your mouth shut.

by Suzanne Titkemeyer cross posted from her blog What Would Roger Sterling Do?One of the things I still struggle with after leaving my old church is when a sermon series starts and you just know that it has nothing to do with trying to teach people or make them consider an issue they hadn't considered in the past. It has to do only with controlling those same people.I still go to church, but sometimes wonder why. I've heard more sermons than I will ever need in my lifetime.
