Thank you to all the well-wishers who sent word to me today. It's a wonderful feeling to be welcomed into the Faith by so many. :)

"Amongst these historical documents,
in this spot, once hung
the Ten Commandments,
forced to be removed by court order."

Back in the early 1920's, my grandparents eloped and were married in Goshen, IN. Today, the sign above hangs in the Goshen courthouse. Even in fly-over country, our religion is being chased back into our churches. I do not recall, ever, in my Methodist church having the Ten Commandments taught or delivered in a sermon, in any meaningful way. We got more knowledge from Charlton Heston than from our church. Why, because preaching the Ten Commandments would hurt feelings. Being honest with someone who is on the wrong path has been turned on its head and those who sin, because they don't rock the boat of the church, become those who rise to leadership.
