Hi Ms. Paula,
I have lived in the bible belt now for about 17yrs. Alot of people here don't even know what a Seventh Day Adventist is.
This has happened many times to me, in different ways, but this is the basic scenario. I'll be working in my yard as my neighbors come home from pot luck. They stop to say hello (from their car window), and say "why are you doing that on Sunday?"
Then I say "I keep the Sabbath of the Ten Commandments, the 7th day is Saturday"
I get the sheepish grin and "I know that, but we're not under the law".
They sure act like I'm breaking a law when I work in my yard on Sunday though.
I get the feeling that they would make me go to church with them if they could.
