Is that how Christian curlers decide who casts the first stone?


No we cast lots. :)

Re: Plain Dress Evolution

Sometimes they are learned on the subject and would like the church to change its position) on these things, but if they already are acting on what they want instead of having a conversation as a group, what they really want is not a conversation but a change in the churches position to reflect the...

Re: Mennonites And Guns And Society

I don't know what the majority feels like, but on this issue, I'm not swinging for the majority looking on. I'm swinging for the small minority that we are personally intimate enough with to influence their lives. The people that know us enough to know that we profess non-resistance. I guess the be...

Re: I think it is funny

http://dataus.net/ss/02-23-63.png I can relate to that being a curler. I might say 'as the sweeping causes a curling stone to go further than it ever could on it's own, so the Holy Spirit allows us to reach places spiritually that we could never reach without Him.' Actually some might think curling...

Re: Mennonites And Guns And Society

So hunting hogs seems like a good use of an AR. But my bigger question is simply, are we willing to forgo this "right" to own an AR for the sake of a clearer testimony? Or are we so attached to these guns and hunting and shooting that others can just like it or lump it? If we don't have o...

Re: Mennonites And Guns And Society

No reason to "duck", Sudsy :lol: Personally I've considered the following aspects of this topic: Jesus didn't preach against hunting, he did preach love of God and neighbor. He did come "eating and drinking" and we know he did eat meat at Passover and other Jewish celebrations. ...

Re: Trump supports efforts to improve gun background checks

The solution is move to Canada. We don't even allow brass knuckles to be brought in. :lol: And let's face it, Justin Trudeau has better hair. But you know what they say and I know it's true by experience 'hair today, gone tomorrow'. Hmmm, would you let me bring my Morakniv? Yes, it is considered mo...

Re: Trump supports efforts to improve gun background checks

The solution is move to Canada. We don't even allow brass knuckles to be brought in. :lol: Imo, although there may be some small changes regarding guns, when people who want to kill in large numbers can get all kinds of free information on making bombs of sorts and perhaps even some biological/germ ...

Re: Mennonites And Guns And Society

How do we want to be seen as simple, plain, peaceable Christians? What is to be prioritized? Our plain living? Our cooking? Our "country" living? Our peaceable, non-violent living? What are we willing to do to preserve what we value? Which of our values should hold sway over our other val...

Re: Completely hypothetical...

I was born in another non-CA background and was attracted to Anabaptist church but not one considered CA. As for becoming part of a CA church, my guess would be less than 10% so I put 10%. I think my questioning on things and being of a different ethnic background would make me feel too out of place...
