I still believe that a lot of modern churches have taken big steps away from the simple teachings of Jesus Christ. I still believe that a lot of modern churches are churches of exclusion instead of inclusion. But I have to also believe that there are still people out there who believe in the basic simple teachings of Jesus Christ without adding a lot of other man made rules and regulations.
I still can not pray for myself. But I do at times feel as if I can feel the prayers of someone out there praying for me. After a day spent with family. A day of Christmas carols on in the background. Not ” “Frosty the Snowman” or “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer”. But carols like “Oh Come Oh Come Emmanuel”, “Oh Holy Night”, “Do You Hear What I Hear.” Classic, older, slower paced carols. As I sit in the quietness of my home, alone, I think I hear the still quiet voice of God whispering in my ear.
