I describe myself as Christian first Adventist second. In terms of my faith. This hasn't been a challenge up till recently. I am challenged more and more on my Adventism. Do I believe? What do I believe? What difference does it make if I sign up to some not all? I dunno I really don't.
So I decided after a conversation with my bestie to actually investigate this maybe get some clarity. Since I know that I am not alone I thought I would write it down so when I get asked I can direct them here.
But here is thing in deciding to do this every time I try to post something goes horribly wrong. Should I take a hint. Like seriously is God using technology to stop me? Well I am gonna keep going and see what I do! I have been writing online and it's not posting. Quite sad really. Frustration is not good. But I guess patience is better.

My name is Tabitha. I am Pastor Purple. I am a Christian. I am a Pastor. I am an ordained Adventist Elder. I am a member of the Adventist Church. I am a person waiting.
Over the past few years since starting Pastor Purple and becoming Pastor Purple I have been on a journey to understanding who I am and how that fits with the world around me. I became an Adventist at 12 years old. Before that I was a Christian. In my late late 20's I went on the road to becoming a minister in the Adventist Church. In my mid 30's I became an independent minister. I am now thinking I would like to reconcile my life a little and move on to my next phase of work.
So here is my challenge What is a Christian? What is an Adventist? What am I doing to fulfill God's calling in my life. So for the next year or so I am gonna look at that. I am going to ask as many Christians as I can find what makes them a Christian. I am going to do research into what makes people there particular denomination.
In the end of my little study reading books and speaking with people I hope to be closer to god. That is my aim. If you come along for the journey please feel free to participate. Please be respectful if participating on this blog abuse and swearing will be removed. Thanks.
