I figured I'd start a discussion to give everyone a starting place for further questioning. For example, my name is Mitchell, I grew up in the south, and I'm a very..."interesting" sort of Christian…Continue

What we can agree on...

I apologize if what I asked was out of line. I didn't see his response to my question, but I was being earnest in my inquiry. Unless he really was trolling, I might cut him some slack. He is only a kid after all.

Those seeking confrontation and argument here will be sorely disappointed.

Those seeking genuine and frank discussion will be rewarded.

Please keep this in mind when commenting here. I'd like to keep this a clean house of learning, not a venue for picking fights.

I have been a great fan of the Taize community so this forum is an ideal site to expand my understanding because, brother, what I don't know would make a brand new world.

I was inspired to do so after realizing that the lovely roundtable discussions I used to have at coffee tables while in college no longer happened in my daily life. A group of us of differing religious leanings gathered together by happenstance and accident, and wound up spending every casual meeting discussing the similarities and differences of our spiritual belief systems in an attempt to understand them better. I miss those discussions, and hope that this group will hold some of the same spirit.

Thank you for starting this group. This subject is something I am very interested in. I enjoy studying theology and learning about the world's religions, particularly the ecumenical aspects.
