For some time now I have followed the conversation on the Conservative Friend list server and have always been delighted in its Christ centered testimony. I look forward to continuing in following the dialogue and when time permits I might make a comment or two.
Although I am not a Quaker - I do have much sympathy for the Conservative Friend Quaker group due to its clear testimony of the Lord Jesus Christ as the only hope we have for all eternity. I myself have been a Christian believer for many years and come from a Protestant upbringing as a youth. Today I consider myself a Christain with no particular denominational affiliation. It is in him (Jesus Christ) that I have put my hope. Church denominations have taken a back seat in my agenda.
I believe in church community as the gathering of God's children at the feet of him who is the headstone and inspiration of all Christian association - namely Jesus Christ. I believe that it is only by his direction that we can hope for success in bringing fruit and glory to his name - of which is our only real purpose in this life as designed by our Creator himself. I believe that if we give ear to the Holy Spirit (the Light as many of you say) within us and follow His direction we can participate in a joy and peace that passes all understanding - continually.
I pray that this forum will add to the glory of the name of Jesus Christ and that God will bless it's activity richly.
