evangelical
• adjective 1 of or according to the teaching of the gospel or Christianity. 2 relating to a tradition within Protestant Christianity emphasizing Biblical authority and personal conversion. 3 fervent in advocating something.
• noun a member of the evangelical tradition in the Christian Church.

born-again
• adjective 1 relating to or denoting a person who has converted to a personal faith in Christ. 2 showing the great enthusiasm of a person newly converted to a cause: born-again environmentalists.

It’s been quite a few years since I have openly joined in worship with people who use these phrases in a positive light. I think it’s fair to say that I grew to have an absolute hatred for the Southern Baptists and everything for which they stood. So here I am working in a church that is steeped firmly in a evangelical tradition, who freely use the phrase “born-again” with great zeal. What will I learn?

Today I went to Fernlea Primary for Religious Education. I learn Room 12 taught the song I taugh them to the whole school during Friday Assembly. Some of you know the song.

On a day like this
On a day like this
On a day like this
Oh Lord, help me.

So that’s make me feel pretty good.

This past weekend I spent Saturday shopping with Chelsea (and got a lovely marino top and thick double layered cotton skirt to keep me warm) and then Sunday I hung out with Jessica and Joseph after church down at their mall. They were afraid that their mall would be all tiny compared to what I’m use to. It’s lovely. I’m going to have heaps of fun with Jess and Joe many weekends.

Sunday morning seemed to go real well. The children appeared to have a lot of fun and learned a bit as well. The art project we’re going to work on for the next 6 weeks is a Garden of Eden, which will tie in with the other things I’ll teach them.

It’s time for tea, so it’s time to head home 😀

Sometime we have to return to our roots to find the direction in which we are traveling. Remember to enjoy each and every day and keep your mind open to new experiences (even if it’s experiencing ways of your past).

And by the way…your family may be the only ones understanding of the $5.

Love you much!
