Calling All Worldview Everlasting Fans!

Hey all, since the old "old" site became the new "new" site and the new site is now the new "old" site, we've lost all our membership in the group. Sign back up again, and check out Episode 6, not to mention find your way over to the WEverVlogg youtube channel (search for "revfiskj").

And if anyone wants to admin this area, I'd love your help cause I can only handle so many corners of the web at once!

Have you tried Trigun or Cowboy Bebop?

I have, actually! I do feel that is where my vocation will be when that is supposed to happen. Until then, I'll probably stick to politics and studying theology/Greek and not college, though. Thanks for the input! :)

You can buy them off me if you let me know which you're interested in. :o) I'm all about the liturgical crafting. Have you been to my art website or my CLEAR blog, by any chance?

My art website (which is in need of updating) is at Off that site, I have a blog that serves as a discussion forum for "confessional Lutheran ecclesiastical art resources" (CLEAR). I've posted more card designs there recently.

Most cards are $3.50-$4.00; cards assembled with Velvet Paper and gold German foil paper are $5. Of the numbers you said you liked, only the baptism card is actually a card. :o) #7 and 8 are a painted wooden cross wall hanging and a painted mirrored tea light holder.

That's great... as a matter of fact I've already made two of those crosses. The first was a gift for my husband, the second was commissioned from LPC and got shipped to Australia. :o) Making another one is no problem. I believe I charged Lito $40, plus shipping.

Pr. Fisk,

I agree with the coffeehouse idea as you present it. Having it as a niche-type teaching station and not making it a substitute for church is a great plan! The problem comes with this "emergent" movement, and it's even a supported program in my district (RMD) to start these "non-traditional" churches in bars, bowling alleys, coffeehouses etc. and have them be actual churches. Of course, they wouldn't necessarily have ordained pastors, or practive W&S ministry... When I asked a district rep (Paul Albers) who was presenting about this how you have "church" without her marks, he didn't have an answer. ;)

Don't get me wrong, I'm all for outreach and creativity. I wish I had more hours in the day (and free babysitting) to be able to do more things like that. Maybe my next ladies' daytime Bible study will meet at the nearby Starbucks. Why not? I just don't want it to become a substitute FOR church.

Just curious pastor-
why is your icon Edward Elric from FMA(Fullmetal Alchemist)? Judging by it, I am assuming you like anime(or at least this one). Just curious.
Seriously though- FMA is the best.
God Bless!

jk, jk
Seriously though, it is awesome!
I highly recommend Naruto and Bleach.
Also, if you're into vampire-slaying priests, check out Trinity Blood.

Yeah, I highly recommend reading the manga. It does diviate from the anime. It is really good and gives much more info in my opinion. And besides it keeps the story going. And who wants FMA to end ;)
