Lately there have been a few blogs that have opened the doors to what I consider to be "hot topics". Now, I'm all for a great debate, but recently for some reason, just reading these posts has been stressful to me. Maybe it's because the holiday season has begun against my wishes, or maybe it's because I've tried to implement a budget at the worst possible time of the year, or maybe it's because I'm about to turn 40 years old. I dunno! But hot topics stress me out these days. So, what are these hot topics you ask? Well, I'm not sure I even want to tell you. That's how stressed it makes me! OK, I'll tell you, but remember that I'm only sharing with you what I've read, and I'm not personally opening the doors of discussion regarding these topics on this blog. If you care to join the debates, I'll share the links with you and you can go to those sites. The first blog hot topic is regarding the recently released DVD "Expelled", which broaches the subject of Intelligent Design vs. Evolution. I didn't comment on this subject because simply reading the other comments physically made me tense. I couldn't mentally relax enough to join in on this discussion this time around (I've shared my views on this before). The other hot topic that was opened up just today is on Santa Claus. Enough said, right? And then there's the potentially hot topic of using i-phones in church. Now, like I said earlier (at least I think I said it), I'm usually not one to run from a great debate. However, for some weird reason(s) I'm just not up to it of late (hey, that rhymed!). What about you, do you jump in or do you run from a 'hot topic'?
