2:50 PM

Hello there--
Church was nice today, me, David, Chris, Allie, and George sat together (although it took Allie a minute... he he). It was the first time I heard the new pastor preach. I like him, his sermon was pretty good. He mentioned that one of his favorite theologians was Bernard P. Fife-- aka Barney Fife of Mayberry and "The Andy Griffith Show", which I LOVE! But he preached on SIN (dun dun DUNNNNNN) (and we usually don't hear too much about it in our church) and that Christ will save you from your sins. Well, I believe that GOD forgives us when we ask. I don't know if I really go for the Jesus Christ thing... I definitely believe in God (or a type of God I suppose) but Jesus is a little blurry for me. I don't think it's bad not to believe in Jesus; even though I'm not sure if he died on a cross to save our sins, I still believe I am forgiven of my sins by God. I don't think that sin is any little thing I do wrong either- to me it is when I do something wrong that is against my morals or love or hurts me or other people. Or just my mistakes, my times messing up.
Anyways, enough of sermonizing for the day... cookies-- yumm yumm yumm. I am reading "Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood"... I like it a lot so far. Borrowed it from my grandmother, figured that I should read it before I see the movie. I should probably clean my room and pack... I have a lot of boxes in my new room now. The Williams sisters won doubles @ Wimbledon!
Nothin else... time to go.
