For Green Thumbs

Received this as an email today and thought it worth sharing.

For the Garden of Your Daily Living

Plant three rows of peas:
1. Peace of mind
2. Peace of heart
3. Peace of soul

Plant four rows of squash:
1. Squash gossip
2. Squash indifference
3. Squash grumbling
4. Squash selfishness

Plant four rows of lettuce:
1. Lettuce be faithful
2. Lettuce be kind
3. Lettuce be patient
4. Lettuce really love one another

No garden is without turnips:
1. Turnip for meetings
2. Turnip for service
3. Turnip to help one another

To finish our garden we must have thyme:
1. Time for each other
2. Time for family
3. Time for friends

Water freely with patience and cultivate with love. There is much in your garden because you reap what you sow.

we do realize, that LIMBO is not an official church teaching.

in fact, it was a theological discussion many moons ago...and that is how the concept came about.

the church may in coming months, issue some official word, stating that there is "no limbo".

I realized that after I read the article. Are there any other theological discussions that are held as Church teaching?
