Yesterday, at Adult Forum (Sunday School), I saw how intelligent discussion and disagreement takes place. It was calm, there were great pains taken to make sure that neither side offended, and both sides, while not agreeing, acknowledged the other side's position and the process that was involved in coming to that place. It was very cool. It was even better that it was at church where, it seems to me, that usually the most virulent disagreements take place. No "drawing a line in the sand" or anything so dramatic or harmful. Thanks God - I learned more from that than anything else!
I am gearing up for my big adventure to Hampton, Va. at the end of the month. Four days of sewing classes and quilt show! I know that some of you would rather stick a pencil in your eye than do this, but that's ok....I will have a blast!
