The 45th Baptismal Service of CCGN is held this afternoon. A friend of mine’s one of the 12 converts – they range from age 11 to 51 (the program).
A friend decided to take the plug. Reportedly she can still drink and consume meat. So that’s good to know. No offense to those who believes in a religion. I’m just a heathen and like to joke. Guess no god with a redeeming value would want me in his or her camp. The converts share the same tub of warm water. (The testimonies are way too long, more than two hours, the water got cold. A few guys tried to add hot water to make the customers more comfortable.) Happy for my friend who found her calling. The upright badly needs a tune up.
I have trouble to distinguish Christian or catholic (calories and proteins, so I give up. Not knowing isn’t too bad). This church used to be a synagogue and had a Japanese Rabbi. I played badminton here for a few years and when they failed to recruit me and any of the players, they shut down the program.
Ran into Margret who looks so good.
The heavy food smell permeated the side (where I used to play badminton.)
Two persons give the speech in English and Chinese, in this order. The testimony is painfully long. Some used paper for their speech while others used their phone.
The teenagers tend toward, ‘my family brought me here .. ‘ while the four adults have
- the 24 years old basically antagonized everyone around her by canceling gatherings at the last second ..
- two mothers have medical problems, one had half her face in pain with splitting headache .. they all made a bargain with the devil: If I get to be healthy, I would ..
- a new Hangzhou immigrant with a daughter who’s husband is back in China tending to the business ..
The god must be really busy. The kids (English) are ok but the adults (speak Chinese) are decidedly problem-loaded and come to seek relief, redemption and help. They all know they’re sinners 我知道我是一个罪人.
