Why I became a member of the Church of Christ

Posted by Brittany at 2:06 PM 2 comments Links to this post



Everyone has a story and some are extremely funny about why they are a member of the Church of Christ. Mine is relatively short since my father is a preacher and at 11 I walked into the dining and announced I need to be baptized, because I could go to hell. Some people are like me and start off with a fear of hell others were baptized because of spouses or friends. Why are you a member of the Church of Christ?

If only it was this easy! I love the sign that says it departs everyday at noon. I wonder if you can come back. I love the photo. The artist is Erik Johansson he has several amazing photos on his site and you can see them here, but I thought I should share this one in particular with you.

All in a Virtuous weekend

Posted by Brittany at 2:04 PM 0 comments Links to this post
























So... I had a great weekend. I celebrated my cousin's sweet sixteenth birthday, went to an young adult Bible study at Avondale Church of Christ, enjoyed a VERY lazy Saturday and went to church on Sunday. The Bible study was especially good because the speaker, Bro. Eric Owens, taught about evangelism and its importance. One of his major points was that evangelism first needs to begin in the home. By rearing God fearing children and saving them you could be responsible for saving countless generations. Because your children will save their children and so on. It was very thought provoking. Also on Sunday, the Tara church of Christ learned of the serious illness of our Bro. William Jones. He is currently suffering from pnuemonia and other health conditions. We (me and the Mr.) went to visit him in the hospital after evening service and he could not even speak. So please keep him and his wife Catherine in your prayers.




On another note GA has been receiving non-stop rain! It's such a blessing... especially after all of the prayers that were being offered for rain. Now we've got more than we know what to do with. But at least hopefully our farmers, lakes and wildlife are benefitting from it. But Mr. sun has come out today so enjoy it while it lasts. Oh and speaking of farmers, well of food, check the ingredients on the foods that you eat. BHT, BHA and TBHQ are common preservatives and have been known to cause cancer. In California you must put a seal on your product that says contains BHT and may cause cancer! Also I checked this morning and it's in women's antiperpirant too! It is banned in almost every country in the world except the USA and Japan! And check out a documentary called Food Inc. coming out in November, which highlights some of the horrible things going into our food and going into making our food. Virtuous will be conducting a free screening of the documentary so be looking for more information on that. I think that's all for today folks. Ciao!

And it don't stop!

YAY!!!!!!!! The premier issue of Virtuous is complete and will be launched November 1st. Phew! It took a lot of work from a lot of people but it is finally complete. And as I started to rejoice over this feat I realized, it's time to get started on the second issue! Starting this new endeavor is one that I have dreamt of for a very long time and I am so happy it is finally coming to fruition. I have so many ideas for the future of Virtuous and once was told to imagine where you want to be and work backward from there. My head is spinning from the possibilities swirling around inside of it. I promise you can always bet I have like three or four things going at once. :) I am chronically overambitious, but I believe in going big or going home. So I am now getting ready for the launch party, where we will put care packages together for local congregations who have college students away; contemplating concepts for the television show (well web-show), and working on Virtuous' sister publications, Virtuous in College and Virtuous Mom. It's a lot but so incredibly exciting! I dwell in possibility. I can't wait for you all to see the premier issue and receive your feedback. I have officially begun the countdown till the launch ( 6 weeks...wow only 6 weeks)! To hold you over until the launch how about putting your own face on the cover of a magazine with magmypic.com! It's free and you can upload any pic to almost any magazine!

Contentment

Posted by Brittany at 10:56 AM 0 comments Links to this post
These words on this photo from SKIRT! magazine are so true. We are always just one thing away from pure bliss. The Bible says with food and raiment thereby be content. Stop looking for the next thing, whatever it is, and be happy right here, right now, with what you have. And what you have is redemption, eternity and the freedom to live without the fear of sin and death.

Hope you all had a great long weekend! Sunday there was rejoicing in the presence of the angels as a young man decided to put on Christ in baptism. He is a young man that attends the Tara Church of Christ, and we all rejoice with him and his family!

Where have all the morals gone?

Posted by Brittany at 12:36 PM 0 comments Links to this post
I got sort of wrapped up on the In Search of the Lord's way blog. Here is a post by Phil Sanders with poll results from Gallup concerning what Americans deem morally right and morally wrong. The results are quite astonishing.

Morally Acceptable Behaviors according to the majority of Americans:
70% divorce
61% sex between an unmarried man and woman
63% gambling
55% having a baby outside marriage
51% doctor assisted suicide

Morally Wrong Behaviors according to the majority of Americans:
91% married men and women having an affair
90% polygamy
85% cloning humans
78% suicide
61% cloning animals

More people thought cloning humans or animals was wrong than believed fornication (36%), homosexuality (48%), having a baby outside marriage (41%), or doctor-assisted suicide (44%) was wrong. Incredibly, more people thought buying and wearing clothing made from animal fur (39%) was wrong than sex between an unmarried man and woman (36%). More people thought cloning an animal was morally wrong (61%) than thought homosexuality (48%), abortion (48%) or having a baby outside marriage was wrong(41%)! You can read the rest of the post on the blog. I particularly loved the final quote.

"God doesn't consult opinion polls to determine right from wrong."

Statistically speaking...

I was on the In Search for the Lord's Way blog today and read these encouraging statistics about the Church of Christ.


"According to Flavil Yeakley, who presented this material at FHU a few years ago, one can say these things about churches of Christ:


* 12th largest religious group in America

* 6th fastest growing church in America

* 4th in the nation in the total number of congregations

* 5th in the nation in number of counties in which there is a congregation

* 1st in the nation in distribution of congregations

* 1st in the nation in weekly attendance."

New Word

I love made up lexicons and I was reading Woman's Day and came across this jewel.

Hangry: (adj.) "han-gry"- When you are so hungry you become angry!

"I had been driving the kids around all day and hadn't had a chance to stop and get something to eat. I was getting very hangry!

LoL hangriness happens to the best of us. What words have you made up to help Webster?

Matthew 17:20

So Jesus said to them, “Because of your unbelief; for assuredly, I say to you, if you have faith as a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.
