True Confessions.......

In an effort to get more comments (thanks to those who did!), I added a little who's who to this post.


I didn't get as many comments as I hoped.....o.k. insecure people need affirmation!


My sister, who of course knows, was sweet enough to comment but not let the cat out of the bag, so to speak!


So, here goes.......I am the Presbyterian! I was born in the 4th pew from the front of Wallace Memorial Presbyterian Church in Panama City, and grew up in the Presbyterian faith. I was actually then a Southern Baptist for 20 years......then returned to my roots.



Having said that, let me say this.....and this may be hard for some of my Baptist friends :), we aint all that different as far as our theology goes.




Sharon, the long haired beauty is still Baptist and Linda the blond beauty is Methodist.


We all love the Lord with all our hearts and are members of the Holy catholic church. For some of you who have a problem with that word catholic....please note it has a small c and means the Church invisible....Christians from every denomination and corner of the earth!



I add that little disclaimer because a boy I dated once attended church with me and when we stated our beliefs in the Apostles Creed, he looked at me and said I didn't know you were catholic!


Now, having said all THAT, I want to say this. I think, Biblically, we are called to be a part of a local church......I'm not talking particular denomination....I'm talking the Body of Christ as He talks about it in His Word. There are many reasons that I personally think He called us to be involved in the local body of Christ.......one, He told us to, which is enough for me......second, He knew that His people would be persecuted and would need one another....three, He knew we needed one another in general in this life....Four, He told us to! I offered another opinion on that in this post.

I think as long as people recognize Jesus as their savior and open their hearts to Him......the rest is not nearly AS important! :)

All I know is that all of us who claim the name of Jesus as our Savior, and who are having fun blogging together, are one big happy family - and we'll all be together one day. Won't that be fun??

Right! We are going to have a blast! Just praising the Lord!

Keetha said...

Well, I was all primed and ready to leave a comment about the OTHER question - - - and I had that one right, you were in the same order in both pictures. BUT, I simply had no clue who belonged to what denomination now - - - you all look happy in the Lord, and that's as it should be.

Sorry I didn't "play."

Keetha, that's the question I should have asked! I think it is so funny that we were sitting in the same position we were standing in all those MANY years ago!

Sheryl said...

You are insecure? That is highly doubtful!! I must confess sometimes I read and don't comment. I will never do that again if I just say "I am commenting"! Thanks for all your encouragment, you know how much it means to me.

So true about being part of the Body of Christ!! Glad to be in "church" with you.

Oh, I am very insecure, Sheryl....I just hide it behind a funny face! Makes it easier that way!

Well, I guess it's OK that I didn't go to church today. I got a sermon just by reading your blog!!!!
