Funny how you can see the subtle (or not so subtle but somewhat pathetic actually) tools being used to steer your thinking about what you are reading...
In this little section Pale provided, I noticed that they named the modern day concerned "sister" Ann.
A way for the article writers to help underscore their attempt to identify the biblical Hannah with their fictitious "Ann" in the readers mind.
When I saw the girl being helped was named "Paula" I left off reading looking for some mention of Paul and BAM. Yep theres the reference to Paul. LOL
When you are swimming along in your stream of consciousness like an unsuspecting little guppy just gulping in the water and happy to be there (this is my analogy of myself when I used to attend meetings) you dont notice all the little "tie ins" and cross overs they are throwing at you.
But your subconscious does and it feels "satisfied" and "convinced" when all the little subtleties all mesh. When all the little threads get tied in to a nice neat package complete with a bow on top!
This MUST be the truth! Look how good it feels and it all worked out!
(Notice how "Paulas" mom even came back? Could "Paulas" life have possibly be any better????)
I also thought it was funny that in the last paragraph on the right column, they encourage you to study with other peoples children in a public place so others cant "misconstrue" what you are doing.
Like when the congregation pedophile is molesting the children?
Ok! Way to spit on your forest fire there ORG.
