    I think, as to churches, mine seems to accommodate many diverse, amazing people. We seem to get along well, and there are enough different activities that one can find a spot. Case in point, I avoid the fellowship groups for older people where the vibe is very Trumpish, anti-immigration, and the only comments about the service music is that it is too loud. Instead, it’s the Spanish service and my four-year old Sunday School class (1/3 of them are from the Spanish congregation), translating, and helping parents navigate school. Oh, and ESL (although our attendance has been so low this year that we may put it to bed for a while-work seems to be all-consuming for our people, and I understand why with the housing costs in our area). There are some people I can talk to. We may not agree, but we dialog; we don’t yell at each other (any side of yelling and I beat a hasty retreat-blood pressure and all that).

    As to cats, Felix is the “Pope” of his own little kingdom where everything is interpreted according to the doctrines of the Dudebro. He does not suffer heretics gladly, and he is quick to mete out punishment to those who are not doctrinally pure. Recently I seem to have been adopted by a Porch Cat who finds my patio furniture very inviting. It’s driving Felix nuts as he looks through the window, but I’ve reassured him he will remain the ruler of his own domain due to the mobile home park rules (one pet per household). I hope that the UCDS (universal cat distribution system) as I’m a complete pushover for animals in distress.

    Thank you…though we both know that my position is due to a lack of competition… 🙂

    Michael, I hope this wonderful post is added to the second edition of “Kids, Cats, and Christ” – that is upcoming, right? 😉

    Thanks, my friend.
    My future is so uncertain at the moment I can’t promise anything…but I hope so.
