I'm considering applying to become a member of the CoBM, but I just wanted a few things answered first. As it is, I'm a pacifist who believes in many of the ideas of Karma and being fair to everyone. I also find it spiritually enlightening and a relief to be pierced or tattooed, despite being deathly afraid of needles.

I am just curious if there is technically a higher power type of presence with the church or if there is more of a spirituality by life and no higher being type of thing. I know that is worded horribly, but I can't think of any better wording at the moment.

I also read about meetings/workshops that are held from time to time for the church, but being in Florida, I'm no where near any of these meetings, at least as far as I understand it. Would that be a problem?

 

Also is there a way of finding other members of the church that might be in my area, if not then at least in my state? Fidning locals might make it easier to communicate ideas, or at least I think it might.

 

Is there anything else I should know other that what is in the Mission Statement and Statement of Faith?

 

Thanks

PyroSatyr, first of all: awesome triforce.

Now, on to your questions. We here at the CoBM believe in a higher power, or we don't – it is the individuals person preference and choice. I personally view things like that of a primitive shaman, and I am sure others view gods and goddesses, are monotheistic or polytheistic. It is all up to you.

The meetings and workshops you refer to, are you speaking of the monthly class? If so, it is the third Sunday of every month located in the chat, which can be found between "Forum" and "Store" above in the main navigation. These classes are based on different topics and often have guest speakers.

To find members in your area, you want to head back out to the main forum and find the sub-forum entitled "Connect", under the MAIN forum category. Here you can go and find people in your state or area rather easily by either finding a previously made thread or creating your own.

I hope I have sufficed in answering your inquiries.
