For the Christians Out There

M Light wrote today in her blog about faith posts.

It made me realize that I've been studiously avoiding mentioning church, or faith issues, or religion on my blog. I think it has a lot to do with growing up Mormon in an area that was pretty anti-Mormon. (I even remember getting "Bible Bashed" during speech/debate class in 10th grade! Me against just about everybody else in class...) I think many of those experiences growing up have made me very quiet about talking about my faith, or sharing it (unless I feel safe).

So, thanks to reading that post today, I decided I wanted to share this with you. My friend sent it to me yesterday, and I was touched. May it also uplift you and reconnect you with our Savior, Jesus Christ.

Reflections Of Christ

That sounds far more difficult than being Catholic in a Baptist area. I'm sorry that's silenced you about your faith. I'll always listen (well, read) with interest!

I like the link - that's one of my favorite hymns.

I'm glad to see you blogging again!

I feel like I have a much easier time talking about God and my faith on my blog than I do in person.

Thanks, mlight. I always value your opinion and comments!

mindy, maybe it will just take me some time to warm up to spilling everything on a blog. :)

the traits of a christian are humility, LOVE, longsuffering, LOVE,meekness,LOVE,gentleness,LOVE,goodness,LOVE,faith,LOVE,temperance,LOVE,JOY & PEACE. We are to be "Christ-like"
Please tell me where "Bashing" fits?
It does not! When a "christian" bashes question their christianity.
I enjoyed the link, and the lovely black box brought me here!
In christian LOVE,

Hi, Glenda. Thanks for visiting and leaving a comment. I think you and I of are like minds. I never could figure out why people, who call themselves Christians, feel the need to persecute others for their beliefs. It just seems so contrary!

Glad you enjoyed the link. I found the images to be very powerful.
