Visiting Churches

Thirty years ago there were Church services on both broadcasting TV channels every Sunday morning and it wouldn't necessarily have occurred to everybody that there'd be anybody who hadn't seen one - but of course churchgoers of another denomination wouldn't have been at home to watch the TV.As for t...

Visiting Churches

If the instructions of when to stand or sit are not in the book, it doesn't matter if you do things differently. One may feel a bit shy about it so the thing to remember is that nobody minds. The most anybody would think would be that a newcomer is from a different church or tradition. If you are ob...

Truthseeker, it certainly sounds as though praying for clarity wouldn't come amiss. However, remember that none of us has the right to gamble with somebody else's life. People don't come on approval : we can't send a child back to the shop if being a parent isn't what we hoped for. There's no changi...

Isobel, when you worry,stop and write down a reasonable answer to every 'what if' question. It's been known to work over time.

The same way you get yourself to do anything else every day, Clairem Think about how you do that and apply it to Bible reading. I always found that not putting things away but leaving them within reach where one goes every day is a good way of encouraging activity. Keeping the piano in the hall with...

Seeking wee bit of advice

I have just come across this thread. You are right to consider the needs of your son, Joannes23. Any normal mother instinctively puts her children first when they are this young. Decisions our parents take when we are children can affect us for the rest of our lives. If you do some research into the...

Not everybody has the luck to be born and grow up in an intact,loving,stable family home.Those who never had one or whose home breaks while they are young are almost guaranteed to encounter difficulty and may well become difficult themselves.

Pat_man nobody is obliged to have a dangerous person under his or her roof. Being a Christian has nothing to do with it, neither has it anything to do with a blood-relationship.
