Hi Randall, thanks for the welcome! I've been in Wooster about 25 years now - it's not terribly memorable. Beautiful, vital area with a deeply ingrained and deeply unfortunate religious and conservative bent. Just found this place, looks promising so far. Hope to see you around!
thanks for welcoming me! I´ve just moved to Nelson (woo-woo village ;-)) and hope to meet some like minded people there. Seems to be kind of a hard task because of all the pseudo-scientific stuff, conspiracy theorists, esoterics, etc. Maybe I have to improve my energy level first in order to attract the right people lol
I have noticed that it is "ok" for religious relatives to talk to children about their faith, even though it may be a different flavor of Christianity from the child's parents. My family tolerates my new thinking, but they don't want to hear about it.
I also have a grandson who is 10 years old, and yes I am very careful what I say to him. I do talk to him though.
I have a granddaughter who is almost two. It is very interesting to watch her explore and learn about the world she was born into. Her parents believe in god but they don't talk to her in those terms so much. I am hoping that I can help her continue learning. I would like to help her learn critical thinking skills, so that she will not just except everything she is told. Like I did.
