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.

10 Tricks from 46 (Betty Bowers)

Started by Loren Miller. Last reply by Ruth Anthony-Gardner Nov 6. 3 Replies

Apparently, Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, has been slumming.  That is to say, she's been talking to Mike Pence [gasp!].  It would seem as though Mike has offered some of his not-so-personal tricks of the trade on how to be a 21st century…Continue

Honestly, the title to this piece is badly under-representative of the content.  To be far more accurate, what we have here is Mrs. Betty Bowers, America's Best Christian, going on a rant.  Before you say it ... Say WHAAAA?  Betty Bowers ranting? …Continue

Great photo, Ian!

How's your Icelandic, Bertold?!

Hmmm, Reykjavik is a nice city; maybe not a bad place to retire to.

My shrine: The Folger Shakespeare Library. My holy book: The First Folio.

I wonder how many square feet consist of usable space, for books, for small discussion groups, for interactive activities? 

I wonder if customers come away from the museum of the bible with a feeling of being talked to, of hearing lectures about what it means to care for others, to make sacrifices to improve lives, to feed the hungry, house the homeless, or to protect the weak? 

With beautiful pictures on the wall and ceiling if the paying public came away with a shiver because of seeing magic happen in those long ago places?

I ponder if spectacular theaters with grand performances offering up music, dance, drama, and comedy if the spectators experienced a sense of belonging to a community, and of participation in life?

In reflection, does one come away from that experience feeling overwhelmed by the stories of supernatural events beyond one's control?

I look around me seeing current events full of hatred, chaos, confusion, and fear and I wonder if the Museum of the Bible makes a difference in my world?

Would a visit to the field accomplish more?

Some nut posted it on the local Facebook so you know it's true. Otherwise it wouldn't have been posted.
