Where is the line?

So, since Sara and I moved we have been looking for the spot God wants us. I do not fully understand where that is. However, I don't feel like working "on staff" at a church is where God wants us. So we have been visiting churches. Honestly, this is something that I have never done before. I started volunteering and working at church almost immediatly after I got out of high school. We are looking for more than just a church to "join." We are looking for a church that will help us fulfill the task God has called us to. Will I ever find a church that I am completley happy with? What sort of things should I let slide and what sort of things should I hold fast to? Where is the line? Do I put up with the 40 Days of purpose, the legality, the business meeting and committees? Where is the line? Which doctrines are essential and which are not? Most people will say as long as the true gospel is being preached. But I say that everything, I repeat

Culture and Geography

Well, I started school back today. I have got to get out. This makes my third school in as many semesters. So anyways, I am taking the History of Africa. One of the first things that we talked about was the geography of Africa. He asked why we thought we went through the geography. No one knew, of course. (It was the first day of class!) Culture flows from geography That was his answer. It makes sense, at least on the surface, and it really stuck in my brain. I know God is wanting me to learn something about being here in Sherman, and why He brought us here, and how we are to do what He has called us to. So I ask you, dear reader, (both of you) What does this mean to you? Do you agree or disagree? Can you see it true in your own life and the culture around you?
