    Hi,

    I just wanted to do a shout out for this forum and community. Where different people of different beliefs can come together is a (mostly) civil and respectful manner. Get to share different perspectives, talk about Christ, and generally fellowship in ways I wouldn't normally get to.

    To cheers for Christian Forums @ Christianity Board !!

    What a lovely thing to do. :)
    I do agree...All Forums have some nasties on them, some that are only here to argue about how much they (think) that they know...

    But , that said...there are some lovely hearts and souls on this Forum.
    The positives outweigh the negatives. :)

    I am so glad that you have found it a place where you can see past the negatives ...and you stuck with us...even when we are not all "sweetness and light"...me very much included!! xx

    ....Helen

    Honestly, this forum has been a MUCH needed breath of fresh air for me. I am very grateful for that.

    As a person who seldom gets into discussing anything controversial, I remain a bit intimidated by some posters here.

    I haven't seen you much of late...or maybe it is me who hasn't been around as much...
    But, never mind Willie...I will look out for you!
    I'm tough...if they annoy me I just pretend that they are not here!!

    And...I have never yet seen you 'intimidated'. :D

    BTW, did you see Triumph1300 post in the PHOTO THREAD where he lost his lovely wife suddenly last weekend. :(

    While driving to an eye doctor's appt this morning, and grieving over a certain post I read earlier, I found myself wishing (again) that I could come to the defense of a brother in this forum with boldness, and not hide from the discomfort of confrontation or speaking the truth in love.

    While waiting in the doctor's chair, I asked the Lord if He wanted me to say something (as if I didn't know what He'd say). Immediately weeping, hoping the doctor wouldn't come in, the words just came. I can't remember verbatim now, but the heart of them was: Life… flows from Episkopos' words. The cross. The dealings. Too. Knowledge of the Holy One. And I've experienced a Love from the Lover of my soul that I've never known, and only beginning to know, really. Need I say more? All this in the span of about three months! It sure is good to be free, but I'm not half as free as I'm gonna be, as they say.

    Make of this what you wish. I've known His scourging of inordinate affection or worship of man. No thanks.

    Scandalous!
