  1. We encourage "close" communion, but it's hardly ever mentioned and we don't go around asking people if they are saved and a member in good standing of a Bible-believing church. So really, in practice, I'd say we're more "open" communion. I would prefer that it be mentioned before each communion time that we practice "close" communion, tho.
  2. Just for the record, yes, I usually do reuse my tea bags. I don't like my tea real strong, so there's usually still plenty of whatever left for another cup. Or I'll combine two used ones.
  3. Or at least those of us who don't use tea bags more than once could send them to Kayla! :frog
  4. Now this is just too many numbers for a post about tea bags! What did you major in.....math? Too funny, but pretty thrifty I must say. :lol:
  5. But most days I feel 80! I'm feeling kinda lonely in my group! I know there are other members here, tho, that would be in it.
  6. I had just come out of church a few weeks ago and looked up just in time to see the space station passing over. I've seen it plenty of times before, but only because I had looked the times up online and knew when and where to look. So it was kinda cool to just look up and catch it at random.
  7. :goodpost: Couldn't have said it better, pastorj.
  8. This time of year it has to be wild leeks (ramps)!!
  9. I get our local channels free with DirecTv.
  10. I do think it's deliberate, Jerry808, but not sure why. Perhaps they are looking for "some new thing" to maybe have an edge over others. Sometimes folks try a little too hard to interpret what ought to just be taken at face value. No doubt Satan has a hand in it.
  11. No changes needed...... we have DirecTv.....already digital.
  12. I've bought/sold over 100 items on Ebay and only once ever had someone return an item....a baseball card they didn't think was worth what they paid. I've always been happy with the things I've purchased on there, tho. I make sure I don't buy from people with poor feedback ratings.
  13. We're too rural for Craig's List, so I usually go with Ebay.....or the local papers, radio, etc....
  14. Yepper, it surely is........can't wait to start picking it. It's been a bit dry here, too, but the temps have been great.
  15. One of my favorite signs of Spring.........can you identify this? (photo taken yesterday) (I predict that PE will guess it first.)
  16. I see that now.....I should have read the other threads first where Jerry used the term. Sorry about that. :ooops
  17. What Psalms 18 may be referring to (I'm not positive) is Historic Baptist doctrine, which might be a bit different from what Jerry gave. I think Historic Baptists usually tend to be Calvinistic in their doctrine. This quote from Spurgeon kind of sums up where they stand..... http://www.geocities.com/hbdoctrine/
  18. We had a low of 23 this morning, but made it up to 68 this afternoon.....just beautiful!
  19. We had a family with 6 kids in our church a few years ago.......taught Sunday School, etc....now they are involved in Wicca and all kinds of other junk. It was really sad. And they still live right next door to our church.
  20. Yes, I think Spring just might be here........and I think our ski season is about over here, too......
  21. Yeah, right....lol. We could use a little of that global warming here. It's a beautiful sunny day, but started out at 13 degrees this morning. Sunday we had a low of 15 and high of 35, but it was also a nice sunny day.
  22. Since our church has a meal every Sunday we are having ham dinner and the folks just need to bring side dishes this week. I'm baking a pumpkin pie and candied yams.
  23. Well, today was warmer here, too......we made it to 32 degrees and the sun was shining! Yeah, last summer I ran my window AC for maybe 2 weeks total.
