Recently I had been praying that God would connect me with believers who share a similar vision as I have. And here I am - thanks to Lahry. I look forward to the fellowship. For most of my life I conformed to the Christian way. I have always been a pleaser, so it wasn't hard to live up to the expectations of my spiritual authorities. However, I did not really know the Lord, even though I had "asked him into my heart" at 17 yo. I did that because it was expected, and it was a way to belong in my new church. At the time I did not even know myself at all. I only knew what others expected me to be. During the past ten years the Spirit worked in my heart - through trials, through Scripture, and other means to bring me to Christ - to really know him, and live by the Spirit. I am still trying to learn what it really means to be a follower of Christ - free from all pretense and hypocrisy. I look forward to a lot of great reading and listening on this site.

Do share this site with others you know in Canada if you are blessed by it. Also I would encourage you to listen to the audio sermons as much or more then talking in the forums. Great to have you.
