My friend Charisse
Hello again, I've had a very good Sunday. I slept over a friends house, and went back to the Brethren church for a visit. I got to see a Brethren baptism. It was very cold and the little girl was so brave to get into the icy water. They dunked her thrice (In the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit).
Immediately afterward a line was formed to congratulate her and her parents. It was really nice.

I met this one young lady and her husband one day and I asked them what church they went to. I thought the woman was Mennonite it turns out they were Brethren which is kind of the same but not. So they invited me to church. It was lovely. One example of how they are different is that they say the "Our Father" after every major prayer. They also bow when they pray which is common in anabaptist churches, just not mine in particular. I also met a woman who goes to a church of God in Christ Mennonite church (also known as the Holdemans). I've heard some things about that denomination, but they were very nice to me. Their women have to have black bun covers which gets covered by a black veil on Sundays. And they all have to wear black shoes. Sunday school was women only (like mine) but taught by a man which was interesting. So I've been "church hopping" but there is no place like home.
Wow it's been six months since I've last been on this blog. Nothing has changed much I'm still in Reading PA. I've met new friends, visited a couple of new churches, and have branched out. You will be hearing a lot more from me, now that I have Internet access. And please tell me what's been up With everyone. I'd like to know your updates. I want to be reacquainted with you all.
