A Vice So Mean and Low
Rushlight/gwashington.jpg                                                                                           
"The General is sorry to be informed that the foolish, and wicked practice, of profane cursing and swearing (a Vice heretofore little known in an American Army) is growing into fashion; he hopes the officers will, by example, as well as influence, endeavour to check it, and that both they, and the men will reflect, that we can have little hopes of the blessing of Heaven on our Arms, if we insult it by our impiety, and folly; added to this, it is a vice so mean and low, without any temptation, that every man of sense, and character, detests and despises it."


   --- George Washington
               General Orders on Profanity
               3 August 1776

Sins of nomission

From the United Methodist Portal
commentary by Dan Dick


---------

Rushlight/umr.gif"A large number of United Methodist congregations are struggling with money, members, commitment and leadership. Many of these churches aren’t doing anything wrong—in fact, they aren’t doing much at all. And that’s the trouble. ..."

FaceBook


I am ashamed to say that I have not been posting on here since September (  :-o  ) due to my recent addiction to FaceBook.

FaceBook logo
While admitadly an incredible way to keep up with friends and family, fb has prevented me from spending the time to actually work on longer, more in-depth thoughts, feelings, and ideas I have had.

It is now my intention to post more on here.  Rush will write again!
