We share tea and talk tea at assisted living homes, private homes and community centers. We play Teago Bingo with prizes for winners. We are also doing mystery tea events.
Spend time being refreshed by God's Word with a cup of tea. Relax in a comfy chair that gets some afternoon sun. Reflect on the goodness of life.
Real joy comes not from ease or riches or
from the praise of men, but from doing something worthwhile. Wilfred T. Grenfell

Faith is not Blind
Jesus said, "So, you believe because you've seen with your own eyes. Even better blessings are in store for those who believe without seeing."
Many people seem inclined to consider faith a more or less blind system of belief while others just can't quite fall for it. It seems to hard to do, blindly believing without any evidence. The Danish philosopher Kierkegaard referred to the need for a "leap of faith" to enter into a realm of spirituality.
But thinking that faith is a hard, complicated concept that must be blindly accepted is faulty thinking, because viewing faith as "blind" totally misses the scriptural teaching of what faith is. When the Bible describes blindness, it is an image representing people who have chosen sin as a way of living. They walk in darkness . The plan of God is to call people out of the darkness. Faith cannot be blind, because faith is authored by he who leads us to the light.
The word faith means "trust." To trust God is not an act of blind, unreasonable belief, because God proves himself to be utterly trustworthy at all times. Christianity is not based on myths or made-up stories. It is based on the testimony of those who witnessed jaw-dropping evidence that God sent His Son Jesus, to this earth. Our faith is not blind. It is based on facts we can trust, facts that inspire faith. Marilyn Meberg(God at your Wits End)
