One of the things we’ve talked about on the open threads is provided for in the Chapel in the Woods which Sundance has constructed at the lower right. Comments and conversations about what the Bible has to say about world events have always been welcome here in the woods, and the Chapel is where we can extend those conversations. It will be open 24/7, just like the Prayer Request thread, functioning as a “perpetual open thread.”
The Chapel is the place to drop in when we notice that our questions or statements, reasonings or fears are best expressed with a Judeo-Christian historical and spiritual context. Anyone who doesn’t care to talk about or pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob is just as welcome in the Chapel as they are in the Treehouse.
The tone and content of Chapel conversations is expected to be the same as elsewhere in the Treehouse: honest and thoughtful. The Chapel has been built to provide a place for folks to discuss what the Bible says about any number of things~~past, present or future.
Argumentiveness and unkindness will be quickly deleted. Anyone who comes through the Chapel door to argue against the Bible as our primary source of information about God and what He thinks about things will be ushered out by the ushers. Anyone who comes to the Chapel for the purpose of Christian-bashing will be thrown out on their ear.
This nation has been a gift of God for well over 200 years, displaying among the nations what a fine thing it is when people are allowed to enjoy those things given by their Creator; among them life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. The United States of America is our nation-house, and there are people trying to burn it down.
This nation is a blessing given to all of us, and there is no supposed “spiritual reason” for people who believe in the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob to sit back and fold their hands and somehow assume that it would be wrong for them to stand up and fight. We will fight and we will stand~~and we consider ourselves free to talk about, refer to, think about and pray to the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob while we do it.
