What a long, strange trip it's been
My blog is one year old today! Counting from the genesis on Blogspot, that is. It's been an amazing year. I am grateful to all my readers, with special shout-outs to Lynn and Joel for hosting me of course, and to Mark, who was not only the first person to blogroll me but, I think, my first regular reader who didn't know me from elsewhere. Who knows what will happen in Year 2...

My the time does fly! Your intelligence and candor have been a delight and I look forward to another year of enjoyable reading.
Again, regarding *church and family*, 3 Mark ends with the assertion that "whoever does the will of God" is a member of Jesus' family. There was no church at the time Jesus made this pronouncement. Therefore, cannot "church" be taken in its original meaning--a gathering together? Jesus will elsewhere say words to the effect that where two or three believers meet together, he is with them. Does that not satify Jesus' definition of both "church" and "family"? And, in that sense, is not even Camassia's weblog a "church"?
