  2. Happy return, Rev Kuespert. I am looking forward to your shares!
  3. Hi Jonathan, how awesome! What is the method of this vs. Reiki? The name sounds like it is something hands on like acupressure + Reiki ? For you was this something that was opening flow in meridians or something different? I'd love to know more. Thanks!
  4. Thanks for posting about this. It is a cache and cookie thing for security. Unfortunately it kicks us off instead of just sending a notification to let us know that the account was logged on from somewhere else and asking to confirm if it is ok! I have gone in circles with the needing to login thing myself! This will also happen if you have recently changed your password. The two cookies that hold your information begin conflicting. Clearing the cache will normally fix the situation. Hopefully it does between your two devices! Sometimes the software will make things more complicated than they need to be!
  5. I view on my tabletop computer, and it only recently started doing this. I'm not too tech savvy to do the funky shortcut doohicky creating thing. But thanks for the input. At least now I know it wasn't just me.
  6. It did that to me when I would use my tablet. I just created a short cut to the second sign in page and eliminated the problem.
  7. Umm...why do I have to log in twice to view the forum? I click to the sign in button at the top of the forum page, fill in username and password and press enter, then another sign in screen pops up and I have to do it again.
  8. I used to enjoy that game. It can be a lot of fun with the right group.
  9. Therapeutic Touch derives from the Theosophy movement. In ways that I can't describe, Therapeutic Touch changed my life. It certainly altered my perceptions of reality.
  10. My cousin's piety seems to be genuine. It's his Humanity I question.
  11. I guess I am the nerd, eh? I found a use for Math outside of school, for entertainment purposes. I played Dungeons and Dragons, and Math was useful in determining the formulas for the charts used in the books so I no longer needed to reference the books as often. The shame, the shame...
  12. Greetings to you my dear brother, Greetings to you my dear brother, At least he didn't ask you for money. I've had that happen to me. In solidarity, Rev. Calli
  13. Greetings to you my brother, I wear a simple wooden cross pendant, but typically only on the days I conduct the worship services at my church. In solidarity, Rev. Calli
  14. I don't know enough about the biochemistry to get into it. I have made some loose observations. I have been acquainted with a few people who were involved with Astral travel. They were beyond over weight. They were huge. I have also known a few Reiki people where the same thing happened. I hesitate to make pronouncements without anything more solid to go by. I suspect it has to do with not being well grounded in physical reality. The spiritual energies need grounding or bad things happen. By contrast, people who get involved with Qi Gong, talk about weight reduction as a benefit of the practice.
  15. Kept by his hand The steps of a good man are ordered by the Lord: Through he falls, he shall not be utterly cast down: for the Lord up holdeth him with his hand. Psalm 37:23,24 KJV
  16. Thank you. There is a P.S. After about five years of exile from my family, I got an e-mail from a cousin. He had tracked me down with Google. He wanted me to know that he didn't approve of my religious activities and thought I should give Judaism another chance. He might have asked about my health, my employment situation, my love life, my state of mind. No. He didn't approve of my religious activities. Not that he understood what they were. Or how I had pursued my family religion. He didn't approve. It gave me a warm gushy feeling. I managed to keep it down. Oh, family. Truly an affliction. Well, my family.
  17. Greetings to you my brother, I don't consider myself a survivor as much as someone who has been very very lucky. Lucky I have a wife and family who helped and supported me during my dark times. Lucky for the therapists who taught me to overcome the PTSD and the other manifestations of the abuse I suffered, and gave me the courage to hold the church of my youth accountable for what happened to me. Lucky for my friends who stood by me and supported me, and lucky to have the church I serve that didn't turn away, and continues to give me the opportunities to serve. Fred
  18. Greetings to you my brother, Well, at least we like you In solidarity, Rev. Calli
  19. Alright. What do you think of Bible mythology? You must have made comparisons.
  20. Yesterday
  21. I attended a Catholic school, where we had Mass in the school chapel every Wednesday morning, and began each class with a reading from the Bible. I was taught evolution in science class and biblical creation as myth and metaphor in religion class. I was also taught Classical myth over three years in Latin class, though sadly I have barely retained the language due to lack of use. I'm grateful to my parents for paying for my education, and giving me an opportunity I might not have gotten attending the local city school. I have also yet to find a use for knowledge of math beyond the most basic algebra in my life outside of school.
  22. If more Christians had your regard for Science -- climate change denial would not be the problem that it is.
  23. What an awful thing to have endured. You're a survivor.
  24. This is a great truth. At the same time, it is not the peaceful majority, that make the laws and the wars and the social climate. The majority of Catholics were peaceful people who never wanted the Inquisition. The majority of Muslims were never Islamists. Yet here we are. Consider the Mafia. I remember a time when people insisted that the Mafia did not exist. That the fantasy of the Mafia was a defamation against Italians. In truth -- The Mafia was and is real. It was only when Italians faced up to this that society made progress against the Mafia. We are not going to deal with the Islamists -- or any other variety of religious extremism -- or organized crime -- or government -- until we can be honest about who is doing what to the world. If we can't be honest, nothing will be resolved and things will get worse.
  25. Greetings to you all my sisters and brothers, Looking at the question from my particular perspective, I think that at least part of the problem is the same one that people of faith often face with how others view them. People tend to generalize groups by what any one subset of the group proclaims the loudest. Let me use my little corner of Wisconsin for an example. In Madison, WI, there is a group called the Freedom from Religion Foundation. This is a pretty militant atheist group that regularly puts up billboards speaking out against faith in general, and at least in Wisconsin led a crusade against cities that had religious symbology as part of their city seals. Many Christians and other people of faith began to think of all atheists as intolerant and even prejudiced against them because of their beliefs. Of course, that's nonsense because most atheists (IMHO) could care less about what others believe as long as no one tries to force them to hold those views. But the Freedom From Religion folk gets all the press. So it is easy to make the generalization that Atheist = Anti faith. On the other hand, in Milwaukee is a group called the Wisconsin Voice for Christian Youth. This is actually a media company that runs a Christian Television station and a few Radio Stations in the area. Their programming is very evangelical and fundamentalist, and in my view comes very close to the same kind of bigotry that the Westboro Baptist church spews out. Their viewpoint is very much at odds with what most of the mainstream Christian Churches teach, yet because their message gets spread every day via television and radio, many come to think that WVCY represents mainstream Christianity. In solidarity, Rev. Calli
  26. Greetings to you all my sisters and brothers, My mother and father were both Roman Catholic. My mom was born in the Catholic church, and my father converted from (gasp) Methodism in 1946 so that he and my mother could be married in the Catholic church she attended. Needless to say, I grew up Roman Catholic. Like most Catholic boys, there was a time when I wanted to be a priest. I used to talk about my dream of entering the priesthood to one of the assistant pastors at the church I grew up in. Unfortunately, about the time I entered puberty, I made the mistake of confessing to him about engaging in typical boyhood acts of self-love, figuring he would give me a typical penance of saying a rosary or two. I was very shocked and ashamed of myself when he seemed to take my confession as a personal insult, telling me he could not give me my penance right then, but that I had to go and wait for him in the basement of the church where he would assign me my penance. That penance consisted of submitting to a beating, then being raped. Afterwards, he told me if I wanted to save my soul, and ever be able to enter the priesthood, I would have to come only to him for confession every week, and that I could never tell anybody else about our arrangement, as no one else would be as understanding and forgiving as he was. This situation went on for close to a year. Finally, I was mad enough about the whole situation to tell him off and stop coming to church altogether. I never gave up my basic Christian faith, but I did reject the Catholic church as full of hypocrites. A couple of years later, I was blessed to meet my future wife, who was and is a faithful member of the United Methodist Church. I began to go to church with her, at first as a joke because at the time I considered all ministers as out and out liars. As I got to know my pastor tho and realized that he was an honest and truthful guy, and as I began to understand the teachings of John Wesley, my faith began to blossom once more, and my early desire to enter the priesthood returned, just in a little different form. So as they say, the rest is history. In solidarity, Rev. Calli
