This is not a blog to bash or bad mouth the ways of the typical Laestadian believer. In fact there are many precious blessings and gifts in this lifestyle. When a person finds such a group of people who have been raised so similarly how could it not be a comfort and joy? I just want to reiterate the things I found most precious in my life as a believer.
The sound of children laughing.
The sweet old songs and hymns of Zion.
The ritual of the forgiveness of sins (which I plan to do a blog on)
The greeting of Gods peace.
The sanctity of marriage.
Sunday school programs.
Singing with friends at night.
Some sincere friendships.
Does anyone want to add anything?
