    Church Attendance Is Dying. Here’s What’s Next.

    yeah...the US has a decimated middle class, loads of working poor, an increasingly frustrated working class, and varying degrees of upper class (my parents are on the lower end of the new upper class, in what was once the upper middle class...), and then... i dunno. there's the "other" people...

    Church Attendance Is Dying. Here’s What’s Next.

    i'm gettin' better about things. I figure..now, I've been blessed beyond measure, despite my flaws and ongoing sin patterns (Everyone has them, of course), so...move on. Put aside what is behind and press forward... I mention the gay thing cuz that's in Wilkerson's material. That and lots of...

    Church Attendance Is Dying. Here’s What’s Next.

    -sigh- this is tough one. I've had a rough go of things with church people. heckled at the local megachurch, hard glares at an SBC church out of state, shunned by the genteel PCUSA folks. I'm hardly the only one. Misfits have a hard time getting into a good church. what does that say about the...

    [__ Prayer __] "he got too old"

    thanks. you know, I realize -now-...I was a wretched, unrepentant sinner, and a weakling. The world is horribly un-forgiving, cruel, full of lies and deception...and I feel for stuff, hook line+sinker. True story. 5 1/2 years ago, I got genuinely saved. Now...I'm healthy, smart, and...I have...

    [__ Prayer __] "he got too old"

    I'll soon be 34. That's what people say about me, and its...odd... I cannot figure it all out. I also need to stop trying. Its a status issue...I -was- poor, wretched, lobotomized, had HIV/AIDS, all kindsa stuff... and now I'm healthy, well taken care of, smart, and its Christ's work in my...

    [__ Prayer __] my parents

    I love them. I really, really do...not just because they take care of me, but because...they're my parents and they somehow managed to stay married, stay at their jobs, stay stable, and stay sane...despite insane circumstances (I was a part of the problem, but...there was a lot going on there...

    thanks for your support and prayers over the years, Pegasus. Its...well...crazy, how the mental health establishment that destroyed me (before Jesus saved me....) is now part of building a new life, as a Born Again Christian. Forgive 70x7. I was once a burn out with a 95 IQ (if that...), all...

    online classes @ cfnet?

    to each their own, but... i kinda like informal classes, online in particular. gives a bit of structure, some reading material. i think its a very good thing, actually....or could be, anyway.

    hey, Tessa. that's pretty much what I'm thinking. I don't think I'm ready to jump into paid, competitive employment right now. Plus...I explained to my counselor that I don't want to lie to get a job. I wasn't trying to bad mouth the jobs lady, but...now that I'm a Christian, different rules...

    he's a good man. competent, too. always a good thing. they do this thing at the clinic...1 time yearly, they review where you are, where you wanna go. I"m doing OK, but I need to engage more. Paranoia and the past have stood in the way, but...I'm getting there, by God's grace. There was stuff in...
