She writes about her devotion to Jesus "as her lover". That is beyond gross!

I guess the scheduled posts is why it took Sarah a month to get the Scriptorium post up.  It looked at one point as if half the attendees were Maxwell related.

Plus my computer won't go to the Scriptorium sites.  It thinks they're suspect on security.

I'm sick of hearing about the Bible and I'm only a Titus2 blog reader. I cannot imagine how every member of the Maxwell family feels. Besides Steve. Seriously, at some point, isn't someone reciting a Bible verse just another day? Goodness.

The word Scriptorium at first glance reminds me of Santorum, which reminds me of Dan Savage's new meaning for that name... :pb_lol: I'll see myself out.

I took that one to be a shout-out to FJ: we will not fight you openly, rather we will just keep showing up.

Why is Mary in two different outfits? I’m pretty sure they’re both Mary and one isn’t Chelsy. Were they there on two days?

Scriptorium - just a fancy made-up word to describe basic bible readings to make it seem more exciting.  Ho hum...

It isn't a made up word.

 

scrip·to·ri·um

ˌskripˈtôrēəm/

noun

historical

a room set apart for writing, especially one in a monastery where manuscripts were copied.

Didn't Sarah's scriptorium used to be Uriah? I think she used to go out in the bus to write.

She should pencil in "scriptorium time" on the schedule and slip out to Starbucks or something.

Ugh, what's with the head touching in pictures? I barely even do that with members of my own family.  Granted I'm not an overly physically affectionate person.  But who does that with a stranger? Or someone you've met at best once, twice?

Mary in the top photo, Anna in the bottom one.

According to the Scriptorium web site the Kansas City event was two days, so that was probably Mary on both days.

Although I agree, she looked very Anna-like in that bottom picture, right down to the plaid shirt!

Listening to children and adults recite books of the Bible sounds like hell.

Not to mention utterly tedious. It’s all they listen to day in day out for God’s sake!!

It's absolutely petty but a 'published writer' like Sarah should know that the plural of scriptorium is not scriptoriums.

Actually, the use of the word to describe recital and dissertation sets my teeth on edge in general.  Fundies are all about words having very strict and set meanings except when it's convenient.

This type of event would be interesting if they had actual theologians making their work accessible to everyday Christians and providing them with new insights into the Bible. With this crowd, even a real pastor with a real divinity degree is more than what they're used to. But I wouldn't want to sit there and listen to someone else's kids recite randomly memorized Bible verses that they don't really understand.

It sound like kids reciting entire chapters that they've been coerced into memorizing.  That's only fun if you're related to that child and even then I'd have a fake smile after a verse or two.

Sounds like they are prepping Abby for future bible bees.  Can't let the Bontragers show them up.

Now that would be fine if Abby could participate in an activity with kids her own age. I hope she already does and the blog just doesn't mention it. We're always seeing her with younger siblings and cousins, doing little kid things.

Or just as often, wrangling and supervising little kids. I hope Mel & Maye are quietly letting her see Mel’s family’s more-sensible side of life, otherwise she has quite a future as an unmarried, babysitting, mountain climbing aunt.

      It’s not supposed to be mosquito season right now but I still appear to have been bitten twice on the side of my foot. Bastards. I know I shouldn’t scratch but it’s so tempting… 😑

      Therapy Outside the Box

      Hello,
       
      I'm brand new to this forum. It was suggested to me by former and outspoken Remnant Fellowship member (Natasha Pavlovich) that I join this forum and put out here what I do. She also warned me that no one on here trusts, or trusts easily, and that I'd likely be assumed to be a Remnant plant or spy until vetted and verified as not that. Fair enough. 
      In short, and in truth, I'm a psychotherapist with 25 yrs experience in Franklin TN (less than three miles from RF incidentally) with a special interest in working with people formerly associated with cults, cult-like or any and all high control intitutions. I'm especially interested in working with those desiring not only deconstruct, recover and learn to thrive post-indoctrination, but those desiring to recapture or cultivate an authentic sense of theology without walls, or spirituality with borders. 
      To date, I've worked with former Amish, Mennonite, LDS/FLDS, FOG, and a those representing a whole slew of evangelical, fire and brimstone fear/shame/guilt-inducing institutions.
      I am especially interested in working with former Remnant Fellowship and Scientology members. I view RF as basically Scientology without the budget. 
      I'll leave it there. Much more can be gleaned about me through my website: therapyoutsidethebox.com or IG: @ therapyoutsidethebox
       
      Peace,
       
      Chris Hancock, LCSW
      Franklin, TN

      Happy Supper Bowel Sunday!!  No, wait. That isn't right...
      Anyway, enjoy the game (or the half time show, or the ads)!
      And a very happy Sunday to everyone who doesn't care about the NFL!

      I'm a huge baseball fan. This year, MLB TV showed Liga Dominicana games in December and January and it was a fucking revelation. The players had so much fire and joy. The announcers with their charming DR accents were a blast, though I could hardly keep up with the Spanish. DItto the Serie del Caribe. As a White Sox fan, the MLB season is going to suffer by comparison. Te amo los Tigres del Licey!

      Had ankle surgery on the 22nd and am non-weight-bearing until the 7th, and it would great if I could REMEMBER that I'm not weight-bearing until I try to step on my splinted ankle.
