  1. I think it depends on where and when you were involved. In the 1970's, it was OK to celebrate or choose to not celebrate. The only consistency I really saw was that we were expected to declare that Christ was born in September, not on Christmas Day.
  2. A vital part of learning another language is learning about the culture in which it is spoken. Japanese and Korean, for example, are steeped in a system of honorifics. Without understanding the intricacies of honorific culture, it's almost impossible to really learn these languages in a conversational sense. So, yes, learning another language and the accompanying culture will help to deepen understanding.
  3. Thanks, I went back and edited but the font is pretty small.
  4. Off topic: 61 years ago, today, JFK was assassinated. (11/22/1963)... Seems like just yesterday.
  5. FellowLaborers of Ohio edit: Did some quick math and realized I had already graduated by that time... Living in Columbus, Ohio
  6. I have no idea if The Way took any deliberate measures to discourage bird populations. The Way liked to keep everything manicured and trimmed neatly. That's not really inviting to birds. They like weeds and overgrowth that can provide shelter and food. Just the opinion of a guy whose yard isn't exactly the envy of the neighborhood.
  7. Just to be clear, God will continue to spit whether you tithe or not. He just won't spit in your direction. Personally, I've never been all that keen on spit so maybe that's good news.
  8. Born Again To Serve. Amazon has it. You won't like the price.
  9. I stumbled on the facebook page of a guy I knew in the early 1970s. He had a comment on there that went something like "If you have anything bad to say about Dr. Wierwille, stay off my page." Just like the commercial for the office supply store says, "That was easy!."
  10. In all my time attending Way functions (1970s-1980s), I don't recall ever being specifically taught anything about Reformation. I'm sure it must have been referenced in passing, but that's about the extent of it. I was never in the WC, so maybe that's the reason.
  11. I read the article. Maybe its' true and maybe it's not. My personal feeling, though, is that if this guy had any hard evidence to back his claims, he would have accidentally fallen down a flight of stairs and landed on some bullets a long, long time ago.
  12. Only in his dreams. Wierwille was a 2 bit stumble bum.
  13. It's like finding a pile of Bigfoot poop. Rare? Certainly. Possessing any intrinsic value? You be the judge.
