Oh, and yes. You or I can be wrong about things--even if we feel strongly about them. There is such a thing as right and wrong--as good and better and best. There is also such a thing as things that are simply true. Opinions, yeah, they are there too.
Yep, that is what friends do. I enjoy your posts because they make me think and because you are so honest about your opinions. You speak for yourself and don't hide. I appreciate honesty--even if it means you tell me how I'm wrong. Thanks for your contributions!
For some reason, when I was passing out solicitations to participation in the Classical Liberal group a few weeks ago, I missed you as a prospect. Probably that was because I was working backwards from a couple of key book titles. Would you join us and get the discussion going?
I have changed the name of our group from Theology Forum to Walking With Jesus. I wanted a more loving , caring and sharing group. I would like for us to talk about Christian books that have helped us through good times and bad. I hope you will come visit. You are already a member. The avatar is a log cabin with snow listed with your other groups. Merry Christmas, Doylene
I'm not that kind of pentecostal (lol). I stay away from the extreme or fanatical behavior. The only thing I really like about my church is the focus on having a personal relationship. It suits my experience of Christianity. I have pretty much had to have everything I believe revealed to me in some way. I've never been the type of person just to accept things without question.
Good reply on the Judgement thread; I agree with what you said. I corresponded with Guy to give him a bit of a different point of view because of his points on there. I admit I did it outside of scrutiny. My views are not always by the letter but I figured since he heard the fundamentalist side, he might be interested in hearing a slightly different one.
Thanks so much and I’m very glad you liked it. Most of the snippets are cut out of my short stories and my novels. Well, when I was asked to join that group, I started it all with that kind of technique, and later on I realized that I may turn my friends attention to my short stories and excerpts with such snippets. Just a few snippets, after having reached some experience were written out of true inspiration. As for other sites, most of what may interest you is posted on gather, and if you’re in a need for a good read you’ll find it there (I’m not boasting I’m not a braggart, it’s you who brought it up, and may I remind you another pearl of yours: “No, it’s you who has a way with words”. I didn’t have to look it up in our old correspondence, I’ve a very good memory.
Oh I see… I’ll rather refer to you as to a mermaid, and not a strange one or unknown; although you do sneak back to the depth of the vast ocean so quickly:), right after one has a short glimpse of your remarkable advantages.
As for the ‘The razor’s edge’ I read it as a inexperienced young man, and what impressed me was the way artists could be promoted and soar to heights that they didn’t deserve at all. There are some descriptions of relationships in that book, which are a bit repulsive or at least raised your brows. I wasn’t fond of it either, but it amazed me as a youngster, learning few more facts of life – whether I liked it or not.
I did post on gather.com a dream, a real dream of mine (most of my other dreams are inventions); it may interest you, it’s titled ‘Latin reverie’ and a snippet titled “Emotional bond”; and there is a very long short story titled ‘Recuerdos’ with a too melodramatic ending, which I should edit – I guess you’ll agree with me after reading it, but beware it’s over 5000 words.
These posts I hope will make you surface…
You must have finished reading the ‘Razor’s Edge’ I guess, and your opinion on that book interests me more than on the other one. I don’t think that nowadays situations are more complicated, people are more sophisticated thanks to the media, that’s I believe is the difference.
I’m glad you realized that there are some males who understand females very well, and don’t refer to them as to creatures of some different kind.
When I use short remarks it's because I'm rocking a sleeping baby. I really just have no time anymore. Would you like to take my place as administrator. The other administrators are not much help. I have grandchildren five days a week and sometimes on weekends. I have an aging Mom to help. I would appreciate your help if you have the time and think you would enjoy it. I would just leave but I'm afraid no one would post comments.
Thanks for joining Mentoring Men. We are thrilled to have you as a member. I hope you enjoy yourself and make many new friendships.
