Advent Calendar – Day 15

Ding Dong

Today is December 11,2011 – The Third Sunday in Advent. One of the readings from today is from the first letter to the Thessalonians. In part it says: “Do not quench the Spirit, do not despise prophesying, but test everything; hold fast what is good (1Thess 5:19-21). After today’s fanciful pronouncement by Sen. Graham on MTP, fear is rampant among the uninformed and the knee-jerk crowd. These statements do nothing to help the conversation to move forward. These off-the-cuff comments stifle the spirit and provoke fear. Nothing of what he said today equating the consumer protection board with a  Stalinist idea has been tested to verify the truth because they are waaaay over the top. Nope. Nothing to hold fast and true here, folks. Just more fear. Do you listen and find out the truth on your own? I hope so. One wonders when this ill wind will blow by. November maybe?

and so it goes….

A little song, a little dance, a little coffee down your pants... 40 years in the high school classroom and now on my own. A chance to think about stuff and how it affects everyone, not just me. Now residing in Oregon volunteering for a refugee organization.
