I pushed the button

I pushed the hot-button issue today in church--I cowardly did not take "a stand" but said that we are a church and that as a church we welcome all people no-matter what.  Really not very radical at all but in our little corner of the world saying homosexuality in church might be enough to get in hot water.  I say that all the time--church is for everyone--no matter what, today I just mentioned homosexuality with it.  At the small church it was fine--heads nodded right along with me.  At the city church it was pretty quiet and no one even mentioned it.  I'm not quite sure what that means.

On a completely different topic--I bought a fabulous new luggage bag!  FABULOUS!  It's a Heys USA Exotic in Black and White Zebra stripes, 26in and so it will have to get checked but that's ok. 
Cool, eh?

...comfort, yes; comfortable, perhaps not?

Someone asked me yesterday about a hot button issue and how I was handling it in my column, and I realized that I wasn't. I said it wasn't really part of my "beat" - but part of me wondered if that was really true, or whether I just didn't want it to be. So this got me thinking...

And the bag is amazing :)
