    What's on your grocery list???

    Yes, I was thinking natural peanut butter would be the same. I used to eat good old Kraft's, either smooth or chunky.

    What's on your grocery list???

    On another note, I have a sensitivity (not a full-blown allergy) to peanuts. So I have been doing without peanut butter for several years. Recently I bought some almond butter and it is a remarkably good substitute. It is non-hydrogenated and separates readily, but keeping it in the fridge...

    Do NOT be Deceived, God is NOT Mocked -

    I am pretty sure I read that one. I think we did it for book study in one of my former congregations. The book that really had an impact on me was Marcus Borg's Heart of Christianity. I have tried reading some of Borg's other material but nothing else has touched me so deeply.

    How was church today?

    My mom was a huge fan of Fassett. And she always called him "Kay" Fassett.

    Especially if we humans get to decide what "mocking" means.

    How was church today?

    I have been through that phase myself. Now back with a congregation but I have yet to make a commitment to it. Will see . . .

    I think this fellow is eligible to apply for the permanent position because his status is supply, not intentional interim. I understand we have changed the terminology of "intentional interim" to "transitional".

    I am not even sure what mocking God or Godde means. o_O
