|A beautiful day for a dog walk on the Riverfront Trail|
Weather: Gray and overcast. Not very inviting. But yesterday was glorious and we took a long walk with the dog along the Puyallup River which runs through our community.
Whoever remains stiff-necked after many rebukes will suddenly be destroyed--without remedy. -Prov. 29:1 NIV
Proverbs: I am a new member of a Facebook group called 'Christians Against COVID Denialism.' It seems to help me to be part of a group where the members believe in both God AND science. This past week someone posted a challenge for members to find Proverbs (from the Old Testament) that speak to the recent disconnect between Christians and vaccinations. Today I share some of the cited Proverbs here. (The letters after the verses are the Bible translations.)
COVID: Though the Omicron variant of COVID is supposed to be milder, it is more transmissible than the Delta variant. I just learned that a friend contracted it, likely from a trip to the grocery store. She is doing better but who knows who else ran into the virus that day. Be careful out there.
- The Rebellious Life of Rosa Parks (Young Reader's Edition) by
Jeanne Theoharis and Brandy Colbert -- Rosa Parks was not a meek and
unwitting participant in the Montgomery Bus Boycott when she wouldn't
give up her seat on the bus. She was an activist long before her action
started the ball rolling. This book is setting the record straight.
- Everything You Wanted To Know About Indians But Were Afraid to Ask (Young Reader's Edition) by Anton Treuer -- the book is organized according to topics --
History, Terminology, Religion & Culture, Powwow, etc. -- and can be
used to look up the answer to one burning question such as "Why don't
Indians cut their hair?" -- or read in its entirety, like I am doing. I gained so many insights. Print and audio.
