Comments for Dark Brightness https://darkbrightness.nz Reformed Theology: in times like these. Fri, 21 Feb 2020 14:44:18 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=5.3.2 Comment on Reaction links. by Amy https://darkbrightness.nz/2020/02/reaction-links/comment-page-1/#comment-653 Fri, 21 Feb 2020 14:44:18 +0000 https://darkbrightness.nz/?p=2795#comment-653 Thanks for the link, Chris. It’s odd, but Real Human People don’t mind my submission to my husband or living my life – they are sometimes offput by my insistence about talking about God, but they get over it. Maybe because my community is fine with the weird? I don’t do much with my Twitter account, it just rebroadcasts my blogs.

I had the chat with God a long long time ago about most of my RL friends being pagan or secular – He allows me very few Christian friends. So, yes. I mentor at church. I have teenage children. I live my life – and talk about my faith, because that’s intrinsically part of my life – with my friends, including the ones who think I’m lolo in the coconut. And they know I submit to my husband and … they don’t care. “I wouldn’t but you do you”. Well, I’ll do things as close to God’s way as I can, and … I will also reap the rewards, kthx. Maybe in 10 years or 20, they will start listening to the Crazy Christian Lady?

Though modern, their songs feel more like old hymns. I’m doubly blessed as I practice and rehearse these songs on drums before our Sunday services. God bless you and and yours, Chris.

Got that T shirt, sadly.

Comment on 7 February 2020. by elspeth https://darkbrightness.nz/2020/02/2714/comment-page-1/#comment-629 Fri, 07 Feb 2020 14:37:07 +0000 https://darkbrightness.nz/?p=2714#comment-629 These are excellent thoughts to consider, Weka.

I especially appreciated the distinctions between “meekness, gentleness, and kindness” and “Shame, control, and condemnation” as indicators of what truly motivates us and others in our interactions with fellow believers.

Thank you.

And both of your national anthems are good.

No one can really sing ours (see the beginning of every ball game ever – ouch!), stealing your (real) anthem and re-writing the lyrics produced a much more singable tune. But then we’re kinda shy because we totally lifted it.

Thanks for sharing it.
