Veteran’s Day, 2009. A lot of men and women have served in the military, and they have served well. It is a great thing to honor them on this Veteran’s Day in which our men and women are spread out (probably too spread out for our own good) across Iraq and Afghanistan (graveyard of empires). Congratulations, Vets!
11 November 2009
Normal day yesterday. Study in the morning and then had lunch with Lambertini. Elder/Deacon meeting that night. We had a good discussion in the Elder meeting on theology and prophecy and the church constitution. No decisions made, but a good discussion. My complaint with our constitution is that we take positions on things that we shouldn’t take positions on, like whether Christ is returning pre-mill, post-mill, or amill. Why lay out a position on that? What is important is that we believe that Christ is returning, in person, in body; that should be our hope, the rest is just details and why do we need to lay out details? It’s the same with sign gifts. Have they ceased? Not ceased? Partially ceased? Who cares? Why get specific on sign gifts? I could go on, but you get the point.
