Goodnight everyone! Time for this Christian to get to bed
Got a service to go to in the morning.

Maybe I'll pray for 3 supreme court justices to retire! But then again my 3 are Rehnquist, Scalia and Thomas....

....oh nevermind, Bush will find 3 more just like them

:eyes:

1. Goodnight, fellow Christian!
May the peace of Christ be with you, and may you give thanks for another day when you awake! And may we all, no matter the hatred spewed at us by, like, two people here, continue to fight for justice and peace and equality and decent human living for all people.

2. Why do you have to?
I was just wondering... I mean, "remember the Sabbath" etc, but.... can't God hear you no matter if you pray aloud, or even in your head while at work? Just curious about the mechanics of some sort of punishment in the afterlife if you don't go somewhere on a certain day while you're alive. Just doesn't make sense to me for some reason, that's all.

7. No, it's the feeling of community
The emotional vibes in a community of worship and prayer and hymn singing are marvelous, especially on those Sundays when everything clicks. I go because I want to, not because God's going to send me to a place where I'll never need my snowboots.

Besides, you obviously don't know what *modern liberal*Christians believe if you think that we think that God sends people to hell for skipping church. Or even if you think that we think that God sends all non-Christians to hell.

Oh, BTW, Lynne Sin, one of my favorite evening prayers, from the order of Complinel, is

Keep watch, dear Lord, with those who work, or watch, or weep this night, and give your angels charge over those who sleep.
Tend the sick, give rest to the weary, bless the dying, soothe the suffering, pitcy the afflicted, shield the joyouse, and all for your love's sake. Amen.

3. LOL!
That was great-maybe you should email that sentiment to Pat himself! You're right about * finding three replacements from the deep pile of doo doo AKA the Federalist Society. Our only hope would be that the nomination process would be so drawn out that the clock would expire.

4. Good night, LynneSin
Yes, Bush talks to God. I would think by now God is tired of the little twit telling him what to do.
