It's been a while since I posted anything, because I've been so extremely busy with church stuff. Yes, school has been happening, and that's all well and good, but it can all be managed in two "catch-up" days a week, meaning that 5 nights a week are spent not worrying about homework, and all reading can be done on a bus ride.

The church workload is a bit more intense. Board meetings, elders' meetings, crusade planning meetings, practices, Connections...Friday I was there for a good 8 hours (but I started off the 8 hours with a good dose of sugar and caffine, so I endured). People are telling me that I'm going to go crazy and people are telling me that I need to stop it, because I'm going to get stressed out, and I'm going to have a "ditcher"-esque breakdown, but you know what? I don't care, because I'm having the time of my life. My work at church makes me happier than anything else - except for maybe camp. And all this leads me to believe...that maybe all those people who said all those things three or four years ago were RIGHT. And maybe I was wrong.

But if that's the case, why didn't I get my sign? I got the OPPOSITE of my sign! Unless the opposite of my sign was actually my sign? Why is the human mind so degenerated that it can't even tell what HE wants anymore?

Anyway, if you want to come check out what's been keeping me busy, you are more than welcome. I don't possess the courage to come up to anyone and invite them to their face, because I'm so, so incredibly shy. (I think you've figured that out by now.) But anyway, I've been busy with Concrete 4 Christ, which feature music, drama, snacks, ect. every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday night for the rest of this month. They will feature a young person from my church talking about a different Bible topic each night - things like Christ, Sabbath, Sin, Salvation, Hell, Heaven, ect. They're going great so far (they started this past Friday). I know that no one REALLY cares about this kind of stuff, but I figured I'd put it out there. I realize that maybe someday I'll push the envelope on all this church stuff, and then I'll lose friends. But that's okay. That's what happened to HIM, and since my goal as a Christian is to be just like HIM, it works out quite nicely, doesn't it?
  • 'crusade planning'....?
    • Yep. We call our series of meetings "evangelistic crusades." I don't know why. But we call them that and we plan them to the hilt and work very hard on them. But now they're half over, and I am SAD!
      Lol :P
  • quick question and it's not meant to be rude or anything but it may come off as ignorant...

    is HIM G-d or Jesus?
    • god in the first instance and jesus in the second methinks.

      But then remember, they ARE the same person. Except one isn't aware he's god, or at least, doesn't have all the spiffy powers.
      • Correct as usual, my dear Alana.

        Except I don't get that one isn't aware he's a God (I know, I capatalized it, haha...) Coz as far as I know, he's got some spiffy powers. He created...like, everything...and turned water into wine, ect. I don't know about you, but I think that's spiffy...
