      June 12 is what shows on our calendar as the official start date of the site! It's coming up so fast!

      I have invited well over a thousand people here! From my advertising days though I remember it takes about 7 times for someone to try something. I hate pestering people but maybe I'll try it again...not for all thousand though! LOL

      One of my favorite memories here on the site was when I saw 11 members online at the same time and I got so excited! I love it when members log in. Of course it's okay for them to just read but I would love to hear what they think as well.

      This is a drag and shouldn't have happened, in my opinion (which obviously isn't really welcomed here anyway) but Cassia, you are already missed, I hope you at least were able to get my msg.

      Right. Cassia leaving is a sad thing. Rens is still gone. Im still effectively banned, (though I will write this anyway .... Someone may read it, or they'll just trash it, but that will only show their own heart, not mine)
      But good ppl leaving or being blocked out ..... And others wonder why?
      It just seems the grace that gets talked about is often just that, talk.
      And the unity that Jesus prayed for and payed for gets disregarded for doctrinal or denominational stands.
      Even this post wont get posted. Im told everything I write has to meet approval by the higher moderators or something first, but nothing I write seems to be acceptable or approved, so Im guessing this wont be either. Take care Cassia, and other friends I miss or who may have also left.

      Im sorry, I havent seen them, or wasn't informed of them, only that a popup says my posts wont be submitted until approval by another moderator first.
      So I guess someone has to read them and then decide what portion if any will get posted, but I have no info as to whether they are or not posted, or when.
      I've had whole, lengthy posts removed in the past, with no explanation as to why, even after i questioned for any reason. On one thread, two were removed, then one was replaced just as mysteriously, no explanation why it was removed, nor why it was returned. When you spend alot of time (and i type slowly and poorly) and you try to put alot of thought into writing something, only to have it disappear, it feels a little like having a piece of your life expunged at the push of a button at the whim of another, especially when theres no explanation. There might be an hours worth of time spent writing something. Was it deleted over one sentence? Two? A paragraph? Was the entire post unacceptable somehow? How could anything be corrected if specifics areng given? Anyway, Im not here to cause a fuss...I just saw the post that Cassia was leaving and felt bad about it and wanted to say goodbye. Even tho she and I might have had some minor clashes, we never saw the need to divide over them. We're family, and wd found a way to overcome and grow together as friends, maybe more distant than i would have liked, but supportive and cared for as brothers and sisters in Christ should be, letting that 'brotherly love' overcome any minor differences, as Jesus would want it, and I just felt sad when I read her goodbye post.
      As far as tango goes, I've never had any problems with him that Im aware of, I always thought we got along fine and I considered him a brother and I would really hope to keep it that way. Im sure he doesnt need any new headaches over past petty clashes with another that really wont amount to much in God's bigger plan of redemption for us anyway. I'd rather just praise the Lord together.

      Please communicate with Tango and then you can probably post away with no moderation and maybe Rens will come back as well, I hope. Cassia was one of only a couple that believe a lot as I do. I have no idea what happened but there have been far to many that have left. When I feel alone with noone else here which could happen very easily then I will probably leave as well and let this board slant howeverit wishs

      I have PMd you about this before. May 18th I sent you the link to try to get you again to talk to Tango in this thread: http://www.christianityhaven.com/sho...cision-Snerfle

      Only you, Romanos, tango and myself can see that thread and post.

      Okay enough of all this drama...Josiah is probably very sad that his Happy Birthday to the site has taken a turn for the worse. Time to celebrate. The site isn't dead so no need to mourn.

      Pope Gregory I was well known for his alms to the poor, and he gave quite generously of the riches donated to the Church by the wealthy people of Rome. Everything from money to land was given to the poor in some fashion. He made clear to his subordinates that their duty was to relieve the distress faced by the poor.

      He ordered his clergy to go out into the streets to find and care for the poor in person.

      Congratulations to Christianity Haven for begin here for two years and for providing a forum where folk can chat and interact. I appreciate all that the moderators and owner and others have done. Special thanks to Romanos, Lammchen, MarkFL, Tango, and more recently to friend Imaginary.
