Churches

First Baptist Church of Milledgeville, Georgia still sends me a bulletin after God ordained me with this church in 1987 in August. Southern Baptists took away all endorsements for ordained women to serve women who are beaten by men, raped by men, have miscarriages and lose babies, mastectomies and hysterectomies. Southern Baptists want women to talk about their female issues with male ordained chaplains who make a salary. Women might be able to do the same work as a male chaplain as long as they don't have a salary. Women might be able to do the same education as a male chaplain in the Southern Baptist Denomination, as long as they don't have a salary. --I write books. Max, a United Methodist Chaplain/Elder, said I became chaplain to the world when I lost my endorsement and could no longer minister inside a box (hospital).

Buddy System and violence

Heal

He hit me with a 2x4.
He punched me in the arm.
He held my sister's ankles
& slapped her upside down.
He punched, kicked, laughed, beat us
Because we felt we had a say.
Our breasts were sore from belts and metal.
We had no say.
We stood together, powerless
If he dropped her, she would be dead.
If he didn't stop, we could die, any of us.
It wasn't until years later, I thought of defense,
and physically stopping him.
Fighting back never seemed an option.
Locking doors, running, crying never stopped him.
The doors broke, and he always caught us.
God, when bad things happen to powerless people--to children--to me,
give me sense and wisdom to change the bad things and stop the sinner.
Let me know that there are things to do besides not talk back.
Charlotte Fairchild 2004


Men drill the "buddy system" into each other in every group they join. Ice fishing, scuba diving, kayaking, hunting, military, law enforcement. When do they tell women about the benefits of the buddy system? When will the local garden club, Sunday School class drill the Buddy System benefits into women with the same scope as men drilling men on the Buddy System?

What do you plan to do to remember women who are abducted, raped and murdered? Would they want you to drill the Buddy System into other women so they can save money, have someone to talk to, and be caring enough to save each other's lives.

Neighborhood Watch

When you talk to your neighbors and find out that cars have been stolen in the neighborhood, then you might want to consider a neighborhood watch. 

When you realize you haven't talked to your neighbors in days, weeks, months, and even years, it is time to think about a neighborhood watch. 

The Buddy System is part of a neighborhood watch, isn't it?

Neighborhoods with side walks, speed bumps, children playing signs help make the neighborhood safer. Having a leash law is helpful. I have never been in a neighborhood with dogs always on a leash in "their yard." Several dogs in my neighborhood have been hit by cars in the past.

Death

Not the most cheerful of subjects. Jenny Ewing died in July, 8 years ago. I thought about walking to her memorial and placing "Buddy System" stickers where people leave water bottles at the cross near mile marker 17.

Maybe her family placed a bench near mile marker 15? There is a granite bench unlike the other benches on the Silver Comet Trail (SCT) with her name on it. I thought about going there and giving "Buddy System" stickers to people.

Tea Bag Buddy product

Tea Bag Buddy keeps your tea hot, squeezes and holds a tea bag. Where did I find out about it? Kroger in the tea aisle! The company is Primula and it costs $4.99. 

A Tea Bag Buddy sounds like a great idea! Praise God we have the Holy Spirit and Thank God we use the Buddy System too.
