I don't believe it.

Ahha...always the sceptic....you gotta love that.

Ray, I have been thinking about this the last few days. First, thank you for all the time you have put in and for your thoughtful comments. I also want to wish you great luck in the job search and the possible move. Those thinks are not easy at any time in ones life. I have a tremendous amount of respect for you and will miss hearing from you on an above adverage amount. You along with many others here have touch my life in a very valuable way. I can imagine the stress that this has put on you and I am happy that it might be reduced some and the change in serving a different group of people will hopefully meet you desire to continue to make a difference. All that I can ask is that you don't forget about us. I am sure that you won't. I don't like it much when people stop posting but I am beginning to understand that it does take something out of a person after a while, even though I believe that it also give much too.

Thank you Ray for time and efforts moderating. If I had not found this sight and the idea of a middle way of sorts, I would have left the church. Good luck with your future endeavors.

Thanks for all your posts. I have been lurking or reading posts here for a long time and it has helped me immensely. I even have a notebook full of ideas and thoughts to help me make church work for me and how to handle things and I bring it to church and read it sometimes in church. ( I hope that's ok ) I just can't remember everything so I have a few things written down. I just hope that you don't take the Staylds website down because I think it could help me more in the future and can help others.

You two should create a thread of your highlights. I'd love to read that.

Not one Sparrow is forgotten
E'en the raven God will feed
And the lily of the valley
From His bounty hath its need

Then shall I not trust Thee, Father
In Thy mercy have a share?
And through faith and prayer, my Mother
Merit Thy protecting care?

Thank you, everyone. It means a lot to me.

Even if people view many things differently, the core Gospel principles (LOVE; belief in the unseen but hoped; self-reflective change; symbolic cleansing; striving to recognize the will of the divine; never giving up) are universal.
