How do you feel about old time religion? Celine Sparks resurrects
memorable traditions of the past and examines possible keepsakes by the
light of truth. What do we want to bring back—the fried chicken, or the
hospitality? Do we really want creek baptizing—or the urgency of
baptism? Even family traditions do not escape query: whatever happened
to being taken out for a whippin’?
Celine observes, Whatever happened to fried
chicken? I'm not sure, but the piece I miss most is the backbone. In
some areas, we've compromised until all we have left is the wishbone. We
wish somehow we could restore the fervor without repeating the failures.
Why not ignite your ladies' class by dishing out
discussion sure to drive diligent students straight to the Scriptures?
Whatever happened to that?
