I learned a lot today about the biblical concepts of friends and family. Mind-blowing and too much to even begin to type through.
I also learned that an actor got converted around 250 AD, left acting because of how jacked up it was back then, so he had no means to provide for himself. So he started an acting school. The leaders of the church found out and didn't know what to do. If he couldn't act and couldn't teach, how could he afford to live? Cyprian of Carthage said he had to quit that mess; if he was going to leave acting, why would he teach people how to act and put them in a compromising spot?
So what next? Cyprian said the church needed to support that cat. If that local church was too poor Cyprian told them to send the actor to his church and they would provide for him. That's mind-blowing to me. So much can be said on that.
And we bought a TV today. It's the first time ever that Stacy and I bought a TV with our own money. This, too, is quite strange to us.
By His Grace.
