Discrimination at a Christian camp?

My parents help run a christian camp and my sister has been hired to be a camp counsellor this year. Today my sister confided in me that when she was hired she had to sign a contract stating she would not do a lot of things outside of camp, including having premarital sex or engaging in homosexual activities (click here and go to page 5 to see the part of the contract I am…See More

Lost in Translation

I've been invited to an event on facebook by my sister! Oh goody I wonder what event I have been invited to!

 

"Race to 2025 Fundraising"

 

Sounds exciting and futuristic!

 

"I am fundraising for a cause! Wycliffe Bible Translators are trying to raise money to translate the bible into every language on earth by the year 2025. To do this I, as long as the rest of our four person team, will be racing up a mountain on the weekend of February 25! Please…

So my sister and our boyfriends decided to get together to play Munchkin

tonight, and we started to discuss how unfair my parents are to her.

She's almost 20 and I'm 21, and I've been allowed to stay at boy's

houses since I was 18 but my sister still isn't allowed to have her

boyfriend over during the day when nobody is home and they freaked out

when she said she was going to be going on a road trip with him and said

they'd be staying in a hotel. We both know that… Continue

I've started reading the bible!

Posted on July 27, 2010 at 1:10am 5 Comments

I know its probably been done before, but I'm reading the bible and chronicling my journey through its vast pages.



If anyone is interested, I would appreciate it if they took a look:

I'm trying to get as many people reading my journal, from both ends of the spectrum. Discussion and debate are encouraged!



So far I've read up to Genesis chapter 12. I hope to have chapter 15… Continue

Oh man, that would be awesome! In school they usually just did the usual quaint stuff and it kind of held me back, but then when they put me in more advanced classes when I went into homeschooling, what they gave me sucked the soul out of everything. I haven't taken any classes in many years though, so I've kind of just been wandering and exploring in little starts and stops.

What got you interested in teaching science? Do you have a special area of interest? You have no idea what a pleasant surprise that was to hear - it seems that so few are interested in teaching, let alone teaching science! And it couldn't come at a better time, when teaching quality science is desperately needed, and taught with enthusiasm and passion. From what I've seen in science classes, it's just facts and figures, completely disconnected from the wonder of the natural world which got sparked in me when I watched Carl Sagan's Cosmos. I always enjoyed science, but I never had that soaring sense of awe until him. It would be wonderful if more science teachers could inspire like that.

I guess I was lucky with the teacher I had when I was young. I had no access to real art classes, but one artist took me under her wing and taught me a lot, but in a very warm and enjoyable way, without the cold technicalities that seems to have been forced on you. I'd still like to see any of the artwork that you did, if you have any online and if you're willing to share it.

 

Don't let your fears about writing stop you from trying it. No one' a master right off the bat, you work at it and gradually develop it. And even if it turns out to be something that's not for you, it's a valuable experience, and can often bud off into leading you to new things.

Well I really have no experience in comic book art, but I met a woman a couple months ago who turned out to be a comic book writer just breaking into the business, and when I told her I did artwork and showed her my online gallery, she offered me a chance to illustrate a few issues. So I'm going to give it a go and see how well I do :) The first Spider-Man movie got me into comic books when it first came out and I've always wanted to try it!

How about you, what got you interested in comics? And what made you change your mind? Do you still do other sorts of art recreationally?

Really glad to see another atheist in Grande Prairie! I hope your idea of an atheist club at the college takes off, it would be a spectacular way to meet new people with common interests, which I've found is depressingly difficult. Once I move to GP I'd love to do anything possible to help out. I do a little bit of artwork, so if you wanted to make some posters to get the word out, I'd be happy to draw something for it if you're interested.
