  2. I dont wish to throw the cat among the pigeons Yes! And we could have a grid that separates the men and women as well! I don't wish to throw the cat among the pigeons but this does not address the problem of kilt lengths. When is a kilt too short or too long,,,,,, above the knee, on the knee, or ankle length

  4. Welcome to Worthy This forum is the Welcome Forum, designed for new members to say Hi and to introduce yourself. It is not a place for a discussion on specific questions, suggestions or requests. If you are answering a post, just welcome the new member and wait to join the conversation they present when they post in the proper forums. Lately, this forum has taken on the identity of the General Forum and this is not what the Welcome Forum is meant to be. After 5 posts, the new member can start a thread in the proper forum to discuss what is on their minds. Be respectful to the guidelines of each forum and enjoy your time with us! God Bless, Nigel.

  8. The above is from your original post when you started this thread. I have given you scripture, you may not like the advice or the questions; but if you wish to start a thread and expect everyone to agree with you, I'm afraid that is not going to happen. This is not about attacking you, but rather about trying to show you too look at your problem in another light. Perhaps, you just wanted everyone to say how sorry they felt for you? Pro 19:20 Hear counsel, and receive instruction, that thou mayest be wise in thy latter end.
  9. You seemed to miss the part in my original post when I mentioned how I gave the lady a token of my appreciation during Christmas, and how I did try to reach out to her in other ways. She simply overstepped her boundaries. I have a right to say who does and does not come onto my property, and whom I do and do not choose to share my life or time with. You're entitled to your opinion, and I am entitled to mine. God bless. Yes, you do have any right that you wish to enforce but does that make it the right path? A person is not there just at Christmas time, what would happen if GOD said,. not receiving prayers today, not listening, come back next week? Do you think Jesus would have said to someone , sorry you have overstepped your boundaries, don't have time today? We are called to be Christ like , 1Jn 2:6 He that saith he abideth in him ought himself also so to walk, even as he walked.
  10. "Adopt an elderly person now, my witness of HIS LOVE goes beyond my privacy" My door is always open, good food, a shoulder to cry on and a prayer, or just a chat. I live on a foundation ,have about 207 neighbours and they all know that. Yet my neighbour is also someone up the road or across the pond. What example are we showing our youngsters? Sorry but when we turn someone away, we have lost the plot. Mar 12:31 And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these. 1Co 13:2 And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries, and all knowledge; and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing.
  11. Shalom , Again welcome to Worthy. Just so that you know and others can understand too. “Worthy Boards are non-denominational Christian forums where we discuss a host of worthy topics such as Bible prophecy, theology and the latest news". "Our desire is to provide a Christian-friendly, family oriented atmosphere online.” The site was created for a place where families can come and discuss scripture, to provide guidance to the lost, weak and suffering, to encourage those struggling and to give honour to our Lord God. We are not like Google Groups, Yahoo, or many other sites. Worthy is not a place where you may advertise meetings, gatherings and promote organizations and blogs/websites. If we allowed that, imagine the teachings and publicity we would see. The boards would be flooded with them. Imagine what it would be like if everyone who chose to do so, began advertising their personal church and happenings and blogs/websites. We, a ministry for Christ, would become no more than an on-line advertising billboard, losing the mission we are called to do. At the time of writing this we have 75,005 members , 19 members online and 181guests, so I'm sure you can understand the reason for this rule. Trust this clears things up , if you need any other help, please Pm a servant and we will try and assist you. God Bless

  13. Good morning Lady , N is enjoying the warmer weather.
  14. It's not about telling you what colour to wear. You can wear what you want. It's meant to be a symbol of solidarity. Do you refuse to wear a poppy as a symbol of war remembrance because you don't want to be told what flower to wear? So if you don't see a need for this in church, then where should it be done? If you believe that it is a fad that will be forgotten, then it probably will be... if everybody has the same attitude as you. Likewise murdered Christians will be forgotten as well, if everybody believes that there is no need for this sort of thing in church. Perhaps we should all go to church to feel good about ourselves and forget about others who are being persecuted. After all, it's not happening to us so why should we bother? Oak, while I happen to know what the poppy is all about, in the us we do not use the poppy the way you brits do. I doubt many on this forum in the us have any clue what it means. The story of the poppy During the First World War (1914–1918) much of the fighting took place in Western Europe. Previously beautiful countryside was blasted, bombed and fought over, again and again. The landscape swiftly turned to fields of mud, bleak and barren scenes where little or nothing could grow. Bright red Flanders poppies (Papaver rhoeas) however, were delicate but resilient flowers and grew in their thousands, flourishing even in the middle of chaos and destruction. In the spring of 1915, shortly after losing a friend in Ypres, a Canadian doctor, Lt Col John McCrae was inspired by the sight of poppies to write a now famous poem called "In Flanders Fields". McCrae’s poem in turn inspired an American academic, Moina Michael to make handmade red silk poppies which were then brought to England by a French lady, Anna Guerin. Such was the demand for poppies in England in 1922 that few were reaching Scotland. Earl Haig's wife established the 'Lady Haig Poppy Factory' in Edinburgh to produce poppies exclusively for Scotland. Over 5 million Scottish poppies (which have four petals and no leaf unlike poppies in the rest of the UK) are still made by hand by disabled ex-Servicemen at Lady Haig's Poppy Factory each year. Also, for over 90 years, "The Poppy Factory in Richmond, Surrey", has been making poppies, crosses and wreaths. Millions of people each year stop what they are doing and observe a Two Minute Silence at 11am on the 11th day of the 11th month, commemorating the original Armistice of 1918 which signalled the 'stilling of arms' and led to the formal end to the First World War (eventually signed in 1919). Over 40 million poppies are distributed by the Legion every year at the end of October and up to 11 November. Each and every poppy is a symbol of Remembrance (Source The Royal British Legion) At the going down of the sun and in the morning we will remember them.
