I am a Bit Timid

Job 32:6
"And Elihu the son of Barchel the Buzite answered and said, I am young and ye are very old; wherefore I was afraid and durst not shew you mine opinion."


At the Preachers' Fellowship today, a couple of guys were talking about beige carpets. It would have been a great opportunity to proselytise in favour of the Shoes-Off rule, however I was just too shy to give my opinion.

Why can I not be more bold?

Angie?

Thanks for the vote of confidence.

Redeemed said...

ohhhhhhhh, ooops, I'm easily confused! how embarassing!

I am so sorry, but now u know that I honestly find you funny,

Redeemed said...

I was wondering why angie was at the preacher's fellowship.

Dyspraxic Fundamentalist said...

I am flattered that you would confuse my writing with Angie's.

I am glad you find me funny.

Indeed, only men attend our Preacher's Fellowship. There are a lot of things I do not like about my church, but they are very strong in rejecting women preaching.

Every Blessing in Christ

That is great that they strongly reject women preachers. This is as clear as day issue and I don't get it why Christians even have to discuss/debate that issue.

I would so not attend a preacher's fellowship unless I were married to a preacher and it was something open to families.

I am flattered that you are flattered by someone thinking that your writing is mine, Matthew.

There was a slight give-away, Sarah. Second sentence of the second paragraph: "favour" - a rather non-American spelling. :)

Well spotted by that lady.

Redeemed said...

Good point, Angie, however, Canadians also write it "favour". My eye did not catch it since Canadian English is like the British.

(Although I doubt my eye would catch it anyway).

Besides, you are both very good writers and I enjoy your posts!!

The IBEX Scribe said...

Thank you for your encouragement!

I know that you also spell things that way, Sarah. I was going to call it a British spelling but I think that it is standard international English and Americans just do things their own way.

Thanks, Sarah.
