    A cheerful hello to all of you! What a blessing it is to find a place where the focus is on the good news of the gospel instead of on the bad news that bombards us daily in the media. I look forward to celebrating with all of you the hope and future we have in Christ. :)

    Welcome to the forum. This place is not perfect and at times in places you may see some of those bad things here as well, but there are some people here who really love God, who work to always show it in their posts.

    Give God the glory!

    Hi, jessiblue, fellow newbie! Nice to meet you! I really like your profile pic as well. Every time I see it, I’ll be reminded of how much Jesus loves us. As we read in Isaiah, “He gathers the lambs in His arms and carries them close to His heart”….

    Greetings, amadeus…. I appreciate your honest welcome, and I’m happy to meet you. :) No worries. I’m not expecting a perfect place, not until Jesus comes back, anyway.

    Welcome @WillTell , @amadeus is correct in that we have some trouble at times, but there are areas like the Fellowship, Prayer, and Spirituality areas that are better than the debate areas. Even in the debate areas there are some loving members of good cheer. I hope to see you around! :)

    Hi, devin… nice to meet you! Yes, 2 Timothy 3 teaches us to expect trouble (as well as troublesome people) from time to time. It’s okay. We have good news, right? :)

    The best news I have found so far is that Jesus is set to resurrect us and bless us with life again (John 5:28-29). The other good news is that we get to be with the Holy Spirit which blesses us with the fruits of the Holy Spirit (Galatians 5:22-23). Please share other good news...

    Okay!:)
    Isaiah 46:4…. “Even to your old age, I am He, and even to gray hairs I will carry you! I have made, and I will bear; even I will carry, and will deliver you.”

    Welcome. I like to focus on the gospel message instead of all the stuff in the news.

    Well, I just have to add an amen to that! Thanks for the welcome, too, Cachalot. :)

    Oh, and let me just add that I love your profile pic. I don’t know what kind of huge fish swallowed Jonah, but I bet that by the end of his experience, he wished he had focused on the good news that God wanted him to tell rather than the negative feelings he had about the people who were to receive it!
