Reformation Fair

Well, Kade and I got back last night from a trip to Illinois for a Reformation Fair that we went to. We had a great time and I was able to make a bunch of new friends and even see some old friends from the men's retreat back in February. We had a "bouffer" war in which we used swords, knives, bows and arrows, spiked Shields, and poles which were made with pipe that had insulation on it. My family had a delicious lunch of cheese, meat (beef jerky), bread, and wine (sparkling grape juice).

We had a couple of great performances from Nathan Clark George, and, I don't know your convictions on this, but I went dancing with a friend I meet that day. Now it wasn't a one-on-one type of dancing, it was like the old English country dances when you would dance with a lot of different people. But I could still see how others might not agree with that. Anyway, just wanted to let you know that we made it back safely, and I will try to post more often.

Ok Kole, I know who you were directing the dancing part to. :) I won't mention anything since we already talked about it. ha.

Does Nick think that dancing is wrong?

Kade October 28, 2008 at 3:56 PM  

I will let Nick speek for himself.

Sounds like loads of fun. Is that the one that Pastor James McDonald does?

Kade October 28, 2008 at 9:02 PM  

Caleb: Yeah it was! Have you done it before?


Nicholas October 29, 2008 at 9:46 AM  

Well, joshua, I really don't like it. It seems rather... well... odd to me. :)


Caleb Nathaniel October 29, 2008 at 10:54 AM  

Kole- Sadly I haven't :-(, though my family has wanted to go to it since we heard about it last year. Also, for several years my family has celebrated Reformation Day on Oct. 31st, so we thought it was really cool that this fair was happening. BTW what is a "bouffer" war?

Joshua October 29, 2008 at 12:29 PM  

Okay, Nick. I was just wondering if it was for religious reasons or not, since Kole prefaced his statement on dancing with "I don't know your convictions on this".

Kade October 29, 2008 at 1:21 PM  

Caleb: The English were on one side of the park, while the Scotts were on the other. At the "ok", the Scotts (myself included) charged at the english who had pikes, bows and arrows, and swords. And we (the Scotts) chaged into the pikes and maybe lost about everytime they had the pikes. We also played seven on seven, where everyone was split up into teams and face each other in the playoffs. My team took second!


P.S. Mr. Nathan Clark George and his sons were on our team!

Thanks for leaving another comment on my blog Kade. That's funny that you were in Illinois, I don't live far from that state....(hint...hint!?) LOL. I don't find dancing bad at all. Only if it's kept pure and not close and physical, ya know what I mean?! This is a real neat blog which I found from y'all commenting on my blog. God bless!

I like dancing as you know Kole. Hope you had fun! Are you and your family going to come tomorrow? Hope so...see you soon!

Nikki October 31, 2008 at 9:07 AM  

I always thought those kind of dancing looked like fun!

Kade October 31, 2008 at 11:07 PM  

Well, I don't approve of that dancing.

I said it, that settles it.


Kade October 31, 2008 at 11:07 PM

I don't approve of it either Kade...

Kade October 31, 2008 at 11:10 PM  

Wow, that was cool, I just left a comment as superman!

Joshua November 1, 2008 at 11:20 AM  

Okay, so Kole likes dancing, and Nick and Kade don't. To those who dislike it, do you dislike it without rational reason, or do you believe it's prohibited by scripture?

Kade November 1, 2008 at 6:32 PM  

I just don't think that it is profitable to dance with someone you hardly know.
You know?

I don't have anything against dancing itself- in its own place. I would be fine with couples to dance -if- they were married or engaged.

Think about it, would you want to tell your future spouse that you held someones else's hand, and danced with somebody else?

Why not just wait until later. It'll make it all the better. :)


p.s. I dont't 'dislike' dancing... I've never done it!

Nicholas November 1, 2008 at 9:31 PM  

My thoughts exactly Kade!


Joshua November 2, 2008 at 1:36 PM  

My apologies. I should have said "disapprove".

Katie November 8, 2008 at 7:48 PM  

Kade-I never thought about it that way, that's a really good point. I wouldn't want to be told that by my future spouse.

I know this is a little late but i just read that you went dancing and i can't believe it Kole i would not say i condemn it but if it is against your conscience it is sin.
