"Back in 1987, I had a terrible loss. Although I had many friends and a few close friends, I still felt alone and lonely. My one good friend heard the news. She saw me at our club, took me aside and asked, "Wanna go see a movie?" I said,…"

"Good point on prayer motivation. I have brothers who are fundamentalists and want me to conform to their belief. A bother told me that he will pray so hard for me that my hair will catch on fire. I am in quiet disbelief. -Doug"

Welcome,Doug ! Glad you could join us. :D

Please consider joining a group to meet people and talk about anything that's on your mind, Hang With Friends.

I also recommend Eco-Logical and Climate Concerns, since the climate is changing so drastically.

After you've searched for topics of interest in "Groups" above and in the "Forums", don't forget to look at recent activity which hides along the right margin of the page all the way at the bottom.
