1. I hate the word 'excommunicated'. Can we never use it again?
2. I read an article on the weekend which said the family is the primary place for theological education. I'd put the church ahead of the family. Thoughts?
3. I had a chat with a friend yesterday who was concerned she was freeloading at church - getting all the time rather than giving. She's not. I think that she is giving lots and lots by being a massive encouragement to us all. But it made me think about freeloading. I think a freeloader is someone who has been coming once or twice a month for a couple of years and doesn't help out and then complains that the creche isn't run very well. What do you think?
