Is there a Christian chat thread?

post #1 of 49
Thread Starter 

I see a lot for other religions and whatnot...but none for Christians. Is that too much of a broad term or something?

Well, if it isn't, I'm here.

Yes, probably too broad! That's why there's one for Catholic mamas and another one for us Orthodox and a few others that seem to be for Protestants of various types.

Well, I didn't want to just start one based on denomination or anything...is Protestant a little better?

There was one but it stopped...maybe two years ago? Well I for one miss it and think that we should start a new one!

What to call it, though? I don't want to be too specific but not too broad either.

 

I just felt a bit left out of the chats...everyone else seems to have one!

I'd love to join. wave.gif

I would join one. I don't know that denomination is important... We could probably do a nice broad one and if there is a lot of interest and not enough agreement, maybe split them up into less general chat categories? I was raised nondenominational, but as I've grown my beliefs have sort of become somewhere between Baptist and Pentacostal.


As for what to call it.... I have no idea. "Christian Chat" does seem... lack-luster. But it's pretty to the point, I suppose. And it reaches lots of people.

we had a
crunchy Christian
 thread going for quite sometime, and since i don't see it glancing through the first couple of pages i hope it is ok if i post a prayer request for hub n lil ds here. my hub willo be having another knee surgery on thursday am, i will be staying behind to get the big kids off to school after pumping milk for the baby becfore going to the hospital, and he'll likely be finished with surgery before i even get there since he has to be there by 6 am and the kids can't be in school til 8 am (starts at 830 for them).

 

please join me in prayer for a speedy recovery for him (and a complete one this time) wisdom and Him to guid the dr  as he sees just how much damage is inside and decides on the best remedy, whether it will be a pin or more involved, and for my nerves. i'm feeling very frazzled with a lot going on.

 

the baby is sick again, running  a fever (i usually just let fevers burn, but he is so miserable i[ve been giving motrin) snoitty, coughing etc. poor lil guy. please pray for this to not be pneumonia, as the np today said it was hard to tell if it was sinus related ort if it was in his lungs

I've seen this in a lot of churches too. Like, praise and worship starts and everything stands out of respect only. No one claps, no one smiles...it's sad to me. I know there are some people that believe that church is supposed to be a serious occasion. Don't get me wrong, it's no joke...but I do believe it's okay to laugh in church! I'm sure Jesus laughed and had FUN with people. I mean, who wants to be around someone that is serious all the time even if he's the Son of God?

There's even Scripture to support laughter and fun:

Ecclesiastes 3:4 A time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;

  Psalm 30:11   You turned my wailing into dancing; you removed my sackcloth and clothed me with joy,

Psalm 126: 2 Our mouths were filled with laughter, our tongues with songs of joy. Then it was said among the nations, "The LORD has done great things for them."

 

Maybe it's time to find a new church?

I think it really depends on the church you are in. Maybe you should try a few different churches in your area- there are lots out there that are joyful during worship and even during the sermon!

post #18 of 49

I haven't been feeling a lot of joy myself lately... It's the Christmas season and I'm expecting a new baby... But I have been pretty blue. Maybe people just need to be reminded. It's so easy to get caught up and dragged down by everything that is going wrong or is difficult with your life that you forget to just let go and praise God for all the things that are still going right.

post #19 of 49

Well I have been looking for a church for the last 2 years......BUT I really I'm not seeing much JOY! from anywhere.

 

Well I hope to find a church with JOY!
