hercthinking

More rambling

Well, today has been another routine day, except that we went to the store (where they didn't have any boxes to package things in, boo) and Athena has a headache. We're hoping it's not dehydration, because those take forever to go away. She thinks it's probably from not sleeping very well and going out in the heat. She's contemplating the possibility of getting a new bed, since it seems like her main sleep problem is that one of Page's favorite spots is exactly where Athena sleeps, and every morning at about dawn, Page comes around to claim it.

Currently our work on Higurashi has us wondering if Ryukishi07 is at all a fan of Shusaku Endo. Collapse )

Anyway. Recently, there's been a bit of a push at church for people to go back and re-memorize the Articles of Faith. See, back when the LDS Church was still new (technically not new, but anyway), there was some newspaper guy (I think) who asked Joseph Smith (the president of the church) what exactly it was that the church believes. So Joseph Smith wrote a list of thirteen Articles of Faith to break it down. And since Mormons have been in the news kind of a lot recently, the church leadership has suggested that we all review the Articles of Faith, so when people ask them, "Hey, what do you believe, anyway?", they'll be prepared to answer.

That being the case, we thought it might be fun to talk about each of the Articles of Faith here on our LiveJournal. The first one is pretty simple. "We believe in God, the Eternal Father, and in His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the Holy Ghost." Apparently a lot of people think Mormons don't believe in Jesus Christ for whatever reason, but it's right there in the name: the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.

Today I'm thankful for the Articles of Faith, having read The Sea and Poison, having plenty of chocolate (we went all the way to the store and didn't buy any, but we have some already), having a ride to the temple tomorrow, and not being out in the heat anymore.
