A hearty howdy to all the for, a hearty howdy to all the ‘gin,
It certainly hasn’t escaped my attention that some of the visitors to this blog — visitors who come here because they love and care for Pam, visitors we very much want to welcome, may perhaps be more than a little put off by all the Jesus stuff we’ve been tossing around. Don’t bother to point it out — I know I’m the very worst offender.
The funny thing is that I myself get really turned off by Bible-thumping Godders, so it’s slightly disconcerting to note that my posts, by and large, are the posts of a Bible-thumping Godder. More proof (as if more proof were necessary) that folks are most annoyed by people who most resemble them.
So, let me ask for the help of those who aren’t quite as taken by (or taken in by) the one, holy, catholic and apostolic church as I am. What do we have to do to make you realize that we don’t expect anybody to jump through religious hoops in order to join in the conversation about Pam and about our attempt to support her well being? I’m not going to change, nor are Pam or Angelique, but I want you all to be assured that our way of making sense of life needn’t be your way.
You may be one of those who are unconvinced of this whole God business — please be convinced that every effort we describe as an opening up to God is simultaneously an opening up to you. We know (and Pam speaks of this to me every day) that we can’t walk this journey alone. Your ‘good thoughts’ and ‘well wishes’ are every bit as desired as the ‘prayers’ of those who actually are comfortable with all the religiosity you find on this ‘site.
Some folks believe that people are ‘unique’ or that one set of people are different from another. We all believe that people are people are people, and we believe in people so we believe in you.
Peace and Love,
