Hello- all are welcome here but I'd like for this to be a ROLLCALL-support thread for the Christian--and seeking, following, and lurking--here at MDC. The mods are currently redirecting threads out of FYT and I want to honor them in the midst of all the confusion.

For reference:

Christian Rollcall I (now archived in FYT)

Christian Rollcall II (recently closed in FYT)

ETA: I think that support threads have been banned but I am not sure. If so, mods just let me know and I will remove this, if not...post on....



Peace,

Yeah for you! I am a recent convert myself. I would have never expected it but found myself at a liberal non-denominational church blubbering because the music was so moving. The result? 5 months later I was being baptized! My life has changed so much. Last night dh and I stayed up late reading the bible in bed. I was romantic and wonderful to be streagthening our spirituality together. Any ways here I am.

Praise the Lord!

Ligmom--

I really don't know but go ahead and ask here. People ask for prayers in TAO and FYT all the time so I can't imagine it being taboo in Spirituality---he he he

I'd love to pray for you.

Thank you so much, hotmamacita

This wasn't going to be my original prayer request, but I need prayers NOW for my mom... she is on her way right now to the emergency room with a blood pressure of 220/144. She has had so many heart problems, and she just had heart surgery in January. We though she was doing better Please pray for her, and for God to be with her...I know she is scared....her name is Jan.

Thank you so much....

just said a prayer for her as well

We're also praying right now for my friend Vickis daughter Jessica Rose if anyone would like to join us. She is 7 months old , just a beautiful happy little baby and has been diagnosed with a significant heart defect. She has an electro cardiogram on Friday and most likely will undergo heart surgery mid July/early August.

if you all could keep Jessica Rose in your prayers we'd all be grateful

Prayers for Jan and Jessica Rose. I'm not a Christian in the traditional sense, but I consider myself a follower of the teachings of Jesus. It's mind-blowing how radically wise he was!

I'm here

I won't say much, but my MDC prayer list is getting long.

I'll pray. I'm NAK with a toddler who climbs on my head while nursing... and I feel like my brain is much today. :

So are we allowed to discuss anything relating to our Christianity or are we allowed to link together as Christians only to discuss chit-chat?

PS- thanks stafl, I'll check out the link

Certianly welcome by my book. You are gonna have to tell me more about what it means to be a Messianic Christian. I still consider myself a non-denom. Christian but feel like I'd like to know more about the different denoms. I found this cool church in my area.

http://www.freedomfireministries.org/index.htm

Does it seem to reflect your views? I don't know. What are the expectations upon visiting a church like this? Can I wear jeans? Is there a class my toddler can attend while I am at the services? Is it a Saturday worship service?

Well...actually i'm not a Messianic Christian - I'm a Messianic Jew

pm me if you want the whole story lol. But basically I'm Jewish by blood and birthright and have accepted Y'shua/Jesus as the messiah. I have been baptised and I am led to follow Christ and keep Him in my heart .

Glad to see so many here. I just happened to take a peek and this thread was at the top.

HM,are your parent muslim? My own parents never went to church , but a dear neighbor lady always took me. She is like my second mom. Being a christian made me different than the rest of my family. They held me to a higher standard than they had for themselves. It was so frustrating sometimes.

NAK

Thank you all so much for keeping my mom in your prayers...She is home now and she is ok. They do think she had a small stroke. I'll add her to the prayer list at the top of the forum when I get the chance.


hotmamacita, thanks...i'll pm you later

DaryLLL, glad you are with us.

And thanks for the reminder about that sticky. I don't think a lot of people know about it. I'll provide a link for it.

Prayer Sticky at the Top of Spirituality

Only thing is you can't respond to the prayers there or encourage each other about specific prayers so let's keep them here as well.

Oh and DaryLLL, didn't you request prayers for the Red Sox or something? : (ooooh, I am a very bad girl.....I hope you still love me in the morning....or after the game, persay)

Glad to have you here with us. I think you live about 40 minutes from me. A good friend is about to move to Bellingham in the next few weeks.
