Christian Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

I dislike living in Canada.

Recommended Posts

Unfortunately there is no perfect government, nor one that is truly Christian and serving the Lord. This is why we need to pray for our leaders as the Bible says.

 

Personally, I miss Canada and I wish I lived there rather than in the U.S. I would move back if I could.

From a completely out of the loop Virginian here: why is Canada's Prime Minister crazy? Acadia, what can you find in Canada that doesn't exist Stateside?

Understood. I couldn't imagine that for myself..

 

It's been hard living in the States for the last two years. I still miss everything, I likely always will to some extent. Not being able to visit my parents as they get older is also very hard.

I was terribly homesick those three years I lived in Florida.. I called my parents almost daily. As I said, I don't think I could survive without my kin close by.

Can't say I know much about Canada, I know there's a lot of liberals, I wouldn't want to be around that. Being out in a less populated part of Canada sounds nice though, I'd rather have it freezing cold instead of hot and humid. And it would probably be nice and quiet.

Can I ask what part of FL you lived in and if you liked it? I'm trying to escape the cold weather. I'm somewhat hesitant with FL because of snakes, mosquitos, and humidity. Very hard trying to relocate.

There are a lot of Conservatives too. Our last Prime Minister, (before Trudeau) was Conservative.

 

I grew up in an part of Canada that doesn't have many people, and I also lived in the country. I live in a city here in the U.S. now, and on one of the busiest streets. My husband and I have been searching for a place in the country with a bit of land, but it's been months and we haven't even been able to go look at a single house. It's really difficult to find a country home around here apparently, and because it's so populated around here, land is really expensive.

 

I'm just trying not to go crazy with all the noise and lack of privacy, and trying to be patient and trust God in everything.

Good luck I hope you find something. Did you find a home church yet? Privacy is important - I love where we live because I have good privacy but the weather and taxes are terrible.

Sure! I lived in Jacksonville, Florida, the areas of Mandarin and Baymeadows. The people were friendly, the weather was warm to hot constantly ( but it generally rained off and on during the week) and things were a lot less expensive. The Chinese food wasn't any good, though and little lizards kept finding their way into the condo. There was no work to be found, so you might find yourself doing all kinds of odd jobs to survive.

Yes, my husband and I have a church, though when we move we may need to find another.

Yeah, it can be difficult to find a good place.

That's good to know. I don't like rain but I heard it rained there a lot. You made me smile about the little lizards - I remember our kids chasing them when we went to Disneyland years ago. I don't need work but do need public transportation. Did you move?

Yeah, I came back to Virginia after the divorce. Oddly enough, I found myself working two jobs here in a months' time after moving back up. The DC area might be a lot of things, but credit where credit's due, there is work to be had here.

Yes my husband had a guy who comes up here to work at their construction company because the pay is better than Florida. Virginia has a lot of things going on supposedly. If you haven't read Pam Gellar's site, I'd recommend it.

That's what they say. All I've really seen is a heightened congestion on 66. Thanks for the recommendation, I'll look into it.

I grew up in west palm. The lizards didn't bother me but I remember there being tons of palmetto bugs, I hated those things. Lol. I lived in one of the less nicer parts of Florida, there was always beer bottles all over the place.

It was nice to be able to just walk to the beach though.

You know, three years in Florida and I didn't visit the beach once? I was also kind of amazed as to how flat the place was. I missed my rolling hills and mountains in the distance.

Sorry to hear about your divorce though - that must be very hard to cope with.

I thought Palm Beach was one of the more wealthy areas? My husband & I both love the beach - something we've wanted to live near for many years. Unsure if we'll be able to afford living so close though, and besides that I heard the hurricane insurance rocks you.

Wow I can't believe you didn't go to the beach! When we visited Florida we were struck with how beautiful the beaches were - I don't recall exactly where we drove to but the beaches were miles and miles of beautiful white sand. NJ beaches are crummy - there isn't much redeeming about this state: high taxes, high cancer rates, ugly. Can't wait to leave.

 

We liked California but it was too expensive.

It is, I lived in plam beach county, not west palm, I messed up. I lived in Lantana part of Plam Beach County. I grew up poor in a dirty trailer park, there's where literally beer bottles everywhere, the yard, the side walks, everywhere. There was also a lot of bars in the area.

 

I bet home/hurrican insurance is pretty steep there.

I had kind of a rough childhood I guess and wasn't well behaved. The reason I remember the beer bottles so much is probably because I would pick em and throw em for fun, and people didn't even care! Sometimes I'd go out in the middle of the night and throw a bottle at a stop singh, it would make all the car alarms in the neighborhood go off. It's funny, but not really. Lol.
