Happy Thanksgiving...

Post by DarkJedi » 21 Nov 2018, 16:07

...to you and yours.

May we each take a moment to ponder "that sacred holy offering by man least understood" and "stand all amazed at the love Jesus offers..., confused at the grace that so fully he proffers."
In the absence of knowledge or faith there is always hope.

Once there was a gentile...who came before Hillel. He said "Convert me on the condition that you teach me the whole Torah while I stand on one foot." Hillel converted him, saying: That which is despicable to you, do not do to your fellow, this is the whole Torah, and the rest is commentary, go and learn it."

It is wonderful, wonderful to me!

Thanks for posting this.

I also am thankful for everyone here. It has been a joy being part of this community for so long.

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.

Thank you to all that try to make things better within your sphere of influence. We are all interconnected.

Happy Thanksgiving!

I just want to say that I read this site everyday and you all are great at putting things into words and give great insights. Something I am not good at and the reason I don't post much. Also, if it weren't for this site, I probably would have been depressed and felt alone through this transition in my life. So Thank you!

11 years has gone by much more quickly than I would have imagined, even as it seems like forever ago that I started posting here.

I am so very thankful for all of you and for the chance to be part of this experience.

I've had family in town and have been enjoying my time with them, but I have checked in daily and read new posts.

I too am grateful for my friends here and the help all of you have given me usually without knowing you've helped. I would not be who I am today without this place.
