Hooray Oakbear!! Thanks for putting yourself out there.

Everyone has something to say about the Mona Lisa until you're standing in front of it speechless.

In case I never said it before, thank you Oakbear for being a catalyst of discussion and for being a voice of reason when things get heated. And while I'm on the subject, thanks to everyone who contributes to this forum, whether it's a regular poster or a new member, or an old member who hasn't been around for any of a million reasons. Thank you all for sharing your experiences and opinions.

This group has been what I hoped it would be and more. Far more than just anther internet group, there is an honest community of spirituality here. We each see spirituality from our own perspective, but we each express our perceptions honestly and openly and hopefully without malice or judgement. (not something I've always been good at, I humbly admit, but something I always strive for)

No one's perspective is complete. No one sees everything. No one knows what is in another mind at all times. Every story is unique, but deeply intertwined with the stories of others. It is our willingness to share our experiences in the hopes of helping each other which allows us a window to understand more about the human experience and to achieve at least one goal that all good people share. To be something good for others.

If I understand you better, I understand me better. This community has been a significant contributor to my sanity, and my spiritual balance. As such, I want to be a contributor in return, and my posts have (almost) always been an effort to that end. "Gratitude" is, at best, 2nd place to the word I'm really looking for to express my thanks to this community for it's impact on my life and mind.

Sometimes I wonder if I can say anything in less than a hundred words.

Thank you everyone, and SasQuatch for the wise words. This forum, and this Church, may be small, but it can make a difference.

"The individual has always had to struggle to keep from being overwhelmed by the tribe. If you try it, you will be lonely often, and sometimes frightened. But no price is too high to pay for the privilege of owning yourself." - Nietzsche
