11th Jan 2009 - Florida
Went to church today - very much as I remembered last time. Actually makes me feel a little sad re the Church of Christ and its inability to see it self for what it is in regards to tradition. It always prided itself on not being traditionalist but it is as here is much the same as NZ without any individuality and uniqueness whatsoever. However i enjoyed the lesson and sermon and had looked forward to the singing but slow and very traditional hymns.
Went to a wonderful Japanese steak house for lunch. Food cooked in front of us on a hge steel plate. Fantastic food and reasonably healthy.
Drove to Spring Hill which is about a 90 min drive on the western side of florida. Jerry was presenting to a church there re the eastern European Mission he is involved in which supplies bibles and other stuff to Eastern Europe. I really enjoyed his presentation and it certainly sounds an extremely worthy cause. They have been currently asked by a province in the Ukraine to provide bibles to all school children. if anybody is interested in donating email me and I will get the contact details.
