The Presbyterian Vision for Biblical and Spiritual Piety
My name is Caleb Munnell, and I grew up in the same church in Hastings as your family. You may remember my sisters Becky and Liz, and I have married James and Lisa Carson’s first daughter, Kiara. James shared this with me because he said it reminded him of our church in Oklahoma. We are members of a Reformed Baptist Church in Shawnee, Oklahoma, and we practice the Lord’s Day (the Sabbath), we sing Psalms exclusively (actually Scripture exclusively, not just Psalms but we reject hymns of men), and we also reject images of Christ. I just thought it was an interesting small world scenario.
Regarding the sabbath, it's disappointing to hear people justify activities such as shopping, eating out, etc, on the grounds (among others) that they are "plundering the Egyptians." Many of those hourly employees probably object to being compared to those who enslaved the Hebrews. Too, the sabbath law requires that we let even those who serve have rest.
