Come on in, pull up a chair!

Picture yourself spending some time with congenial friends, sharing your lives and pictures from your cell phones." They're curious about that cool game, song, movie, camping trip, art show, or other event that fascinated you. You talk about all kinds of stuff, poetry, styles, personal achievements, relationships, and bad days. You can share your inner child, and laugh together. They sympathetically listen to your feelings about serious topics like politics or climate change, even when they don't agree.

Personal validation comes from paying attention to one another, giving more than you get. Everyone respects you and themselves, despite our amazing range of personal tastes and interests. They'll tell you they don't agree with an idea or behavior without implying you're a bad person or somehow deficient. It's an "I'm OK, You're OK" kind of fellowship, where nobody tries to make himself look better by picking on somebody else.

Nobody here is into mind games. A discussion started with a loaded guilt-throwing question will be deleted.

This group is not intended to compete with other groups on topics they cover but to "fill in the cracks." Whenever a discussion dwells at length on a topic for which there's an existing group, we urge you to provide members a link to that group to continue along their tangent.

A comment is a shout-out, which will get lost in a few days, because the comment wall is just a random stack.

Please start a discussion to share stories, photos, and videos. Replies will pop up in your "latest activity" and a conversation can develop from the feelings and thoughts you contributed. Groups are built on discussions.

Evangelicals Breaking Up with Jesus (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Grinning Cat May 28. 10 Replies

Has evangelical Christianity lost sight of Christ?  Seems to me that there are a whole lot of evangelical Christians who are presuming to represent Jesus by not representing him or misrepresenting him or – let's be honest here – talking out of their…Continue

I've returned to the fold (as they say).

My trip to Great Falls, Montana was wonderful. The driving to and from not so much (long and tiring), but the actual program was quite good. I learned some new things about Charlie Russell, the Plains Indians, and Lewis and Clark. We also visited a Hutterite community which was interesting.

It's good to be home.

Good news that trump won't come, Ian!

I didn't think the girls were in time with the beat of the Elvis song....didn't like that one.

Comment by Patricia on August 19, 2019 at 12:44pm

I saw the single view one too, but didn't post as it is only 57 seconds long.

Looks like a lot more fun than running, or calisthenics.

How about this shuffle?

Chinese-Style Shuffle - The Most Amazing Dance in China's Cities (Women Have No Worng). 

I have no idea what "worng" means.

Chinese grandfather doing the shuffle with two darling granddaughters. 

I was amazed by the choreography of this video until I saw the other shuffle videos from China. It reminds me of the exercises men and women did in the streets of China before going to work.

I like the song, Patricia!

Aaaah, my old dream of an earthship!

No, one image would have been much better.
