Did you really say that to the organists, or just think about saying it? That's funny.
There's a church in our town that's a Church of Christ, but as far as I can tell, none of the other Churches of Christ around here even acknowledge it, and I guess that's because it's instrumental. I only recently learned that the family of one of my son's friends attends there, and we went to their egg hunt on Easter weekend. I haven't been to worship there yet, but as far as I could tell, it was a church full of God-loving, Christ-following people, so I hope to get to know more of them in the future and attend some of their events. If nothing else, it would just be nice to see different perspectives; I might even learn something from them!

Yes, I really said that to the organists. I didn't just think about it. Wherever I go, I always try to meet and get to know our extended family in the Independant Christian Church and sometimes in the Disciples of Christ. As you observed in the character of those folks in your area, getting to know people really breaks down stereotypes.


Bethany really is a neat trip. When I went for the first time, I was surprised that it was so very out of the way. On the one road that leads from the south into Bethany, I had to wait while an Amish guy tried to get his mule to pull a wagon out of my way. The mule was being quite the mule. So it took a while. The Campbell mansion had just recently been refurbished. Years ago, Bethany College actually used the mansion as the dorm for the agriculture guys. It was in bad shape by the time the College realized they were about to lose a treasure.

Thanks for your comment. I came to Bethnay from the north, but I'd never seen so many Amish buggies on the road in my life. I like horses though so it was interesting. I was really impressed by the beauty of the place. What an idyllic and tranquil setting. I'm so glad Bethany College wised up and decided to preserve the treasure. I'm not sure why I'm so fascinated by Campbell's life and work, but I am.

Yes I am so blessed. So I'm guessing the Stoned-Campbell Disciple hasn't made it to Bethany yet?
