      Hi from the UK

      It has been a while since I was part of a Christian online forum, been through a lot since then and I thought I would try again.

      So Hi, my name is Pete, I live in Peterborough in UK and I am a Christian, but not a church goer, and yes I know some will see that as incongruous but there is a long journeythat has led me to this place and if I hang around here long enough and feel this is a safe place I may share the story of that journey.

      I am married, with two grown daughters and three grandsons.

      I look forward to learning more about all here.

      Hello and welcome.

      My name is Philip. I live in Perth Western Australia (one of the suburbs of the city, not in the centre of the city itself). I'm a Christian, specifically a Catholic.

      Enjoy yourself here. Folk are friendly.

      Hi Pete, and welcome to the forum! I hope your time with us is greatly blessed.
      "Do what thou will shall be the whole of the law" - Aleister Crowley

      "If you love me, obey my commandments" - Jesus Christ

      The Bible comes as a complete package. If we want to pluck verses out of context so make them mean what we want them to mean, if we want to ignore the passages that are inconvenient to our outlook, we should be intellectually honest enough to throw our Bibles in the trash and admit we are following Crowley and not Christ.

      Hi Pete ... welcome! It's good to see you here. I'm James from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. Like you, I am a Christian ... in my case, of the Anglican persuasion, although I attend a Lutheran church. My church history before that was much more exciting, though.

      Don't make us incriminate ourselves, Ms Lammikins. Most of us are very black sheep.

      Faramir or pete? There are two given names in your username. Which would you rather be hailed by?

      Thank you all for yur welcome , I like to be known as Pete as that is my given name, the name Faramir also has a story behind it for me which I will share in time too. You seem to have a very ecclectic group here judging from the respondees here at least.
      I was part of the ubiquitous Christian Forums, I was part of the moderator team there for a while, I was also part of a few much smaller forums specifically in the UK and most recently I was part of a forum connected to Ransomed Heart Ministries. But all of that ended about 5 years ago and shifted onto Facebook. I tried to go with it but the whole concept of Facebook started to get to self absorbed (imo) and self serving so I closed my subscription there and stopped following stuff.
      Now I find I am missing the company and thoughts and ideas of other Christian folks. So I am venturing out into the land of forms again.
