[..I Followed Her Out The Door And Watched Her Walk Down The Road Towards Home, Hers, And The Bright Yard Light, And Her Own Bed, And Our Parents, And I Stood There For A Long Time Because I Didn't Know Where Else To Go.I Stood There Long Enough To Feel The Chill Of The Night. The Sky Was A Blanket Of Stars.Indifferent. I Repeated The Ancient Song Of Nezahualcoytl. I Stood There Long Enough To Hear My Family Singing. Why Were They Singing At Two In The Morning? I Heard The Hight, Creaky Voice Of My Mother And The Off-key But Persistent Voices Of My Little Brothers.]

Quotes About Ignorance In The Bible

"What is a disciple? It is not a mindless follower. A disciple is a student. When Paul prohibits women teaching men, he (in the same breath) requires Christian women to be students of the Word "Let a woman learn..." (1 Tim 2:11).Because biblical learning is required of us, we ought not to be afraid of it. We must overcome our ignorance! We ought to read good, solid books on Christian doctrine. It is good for us! We must cultivate a taste for books that will build s up in the faith- not take us to fantasy land. Just read a page or two at a time if need be, and never at the expense of your Bible reading." - Author: Nancy Wilson
