  1. Hi, I want to make a thread where friends can share photos we've taken and exchange ideas about software, cameras, and equipment; even pics you've taken with your phone. I don't know how many if any will want to participate but I'm giving it a shot. ( Haha get it - shot ) I'll start by sharing a few photos I took today at a zoo we visited. Update: Editing this post after we've reached around 150 pages to say PLEASE try to limit reposting of others' photos when you comment. I am going back and shrinking all my reposts in hopes that people won't have to scroll endlessly and others won't get lost in the shuffle. Thank you everyone, I am really enjoying this! Edit #2 added 6/24/2017: apologies if this thread seems to derail at times. To me the fellowship with each other and the holy spirit is the main goal. Staying "on topic" is secondary. Edit #3 added 7/22/17: please have fun and feel free to post what you want. Party poopers are likely to be beaten with a frying pan .
  2. Warning: there are some dark topics in this post such as bullying, stranger danger, sexual references. Something I think about a lot - not surprising since social media is pretty much ingrained in most people's daily routines these days - is how Christians use and let their children use social media. Are some apps okay and others not? Or do you ban it completely in your household? Do you track your kids activity or put protective passwords on the internet? I've thought about this a lot in the past, but thought I'd post about it now because at the moment, I'm sitting in my 13 year old sister's room while she's on her phone talking to a stranger over WhatsApp. The stranger is a teenager who is confused about their gender. They already had reassignment surgery and now a couple years later they want to change back, so my sis tells me. They're also a self harmer, which I have sympathy for, but I don't really want my sis exposed to any pictures or gory info about this person's experiences with self harm. My sister is mature, but lacks common sense sometimes. The stranger has been harassing her for months, saying that she loves her and that she belongs to her. Even though my sis has made it perfectly clear they're not 'together' this person keeps insisting they are and she knows one of my sister's friends in person apparently. That's kinda creepy. I only use FB and IG for business promotion now, but in the past I've had messages from strangers on IG which turned out to be naked pics or porn, and I'm a bit worried my sister has experienced this too. Of course I can't do anything about it since she's not my child. I've told her to block the person but she says she feels bad if she ignores them as they guilt trip her with sad stories about them. I've got all her passwords so I can monitor what she's doing online. I trust her, she's not an idiot, but I don't trust other people on the internet. (How ironic that I'm posting this on an online forum 😂) She's sweet and innocent and smart, never had a boyfriend, whereas her real friends have had boyfriends and girlfriends and done things with them. She knows I don't think she's in the right circle, but she thinks she knows what she's doing. I can't blame her, I was the same at her age, however I always say I was born first so I could do all the stupid stuff so they wouldn't have to. I was hoping they'd learn from my mistakes lol. Point is, the internet can be a dangerous place, especially for kids. For most people these days images of sex/violence, deadly internet pranks/trends and online bullying is normal and not something to be especially anxious about, but for Christians who actually practice what they preach and try their best to keep themselves and their families away from these things in real life, the internet and social media is something worth protecting ourselves and our children from. So I want opinions from fellow Christians. Is it okay to let your kids/younger siblings on the internet unsupervised, or should we block some things? Or can some kids be trusted to obey their parents if they set some basic rules for using the internet? Should kids be banned from social media all together? By kids I mean people under 16. Other than staying in touch with friends, I don't see the point in people younger than 16 having social media. Sure sometimes their picture gets likes and it makes them feel good for a bit, but sometimes they don't get any likes or response on their posts at all and believe me, in a teen's mind the bad will always outweigh the good, whether they're Christian or not. It's like if a hundred people all gave you a compliment. You'd appreciate them, but if someone insulted you, you'd think more about the insult than the compliment. I don't know, maybe I'm just one of those people who doesn't understand it despite my age. I grew up poor and while some of my friends had all the latest tech as soon as it hit the shops, I had to use a landline or my legs to stay in touch with people until I was fifteen, when I finally got my own laptop. I didn't have a decent mobile phone (that I didn't have to share with my 2 brothers) til I was seventeen and even then I never had credit, so I wasn't constantly available to everyone. I just find it weird that such young kids are so easily accessible to friends and strangers alike I guess 😕 What do you think and what are some good and bad experiences you or your children have had on the internet??
  3. Part of the challenge in being a Pastor is loneliness. I am friends with many of the people in our church but there is and most likely always be some degree of separation between them and me. A recent survey found 78% of Pastors have no close friends. What I am not sure of is how to find and make new friends. I welcome any input. Thanks very much Rick
  4. Hi! I transfered into a new school last August. I’m currenlty a junior. I’m used to moving because I’ve had to change schools and houses a lot, so it’s nothing new. At my old school I had friends and finally felt like a found a place for me after moving so much. I felt welcomed and comfortable. But here, there isn’t many people who look like me and I feel like I don’t belong. All the kids are super rich and my family barely makes it. I feel so bad comparing myself to them because it shows I’m ungrateful and I’m really working on that because I know God blesses me so much. But my insecurity just keeps showing up. I’ve made a couple friends but i still fail to get out there. My anxiety gets in my way and I unfortunately care too much of what people think. To get to the point, my bff who transferred in with me is transfering and this week is her last. I’m devatsed as she was my only real friend in my grade. The new semester just started and the most uncomfortable class I’m in, I had with her. But now since she leaving, I’m panicking. I’ve been crying all day because I feel so lonely. I’ve prayed about this to God, but I just don’t know what to do. Please pray for me. I’m really scared I don’t know what’s to come and I’m just so lonely.
  5. Well, I am fairly new here as I joined 3 days ago I believe. I have met many new wonderful friends in this ministry and I feel totally blessed that I found Worthy Ministries. I am a Christian for 37 years now and I love my Lord and Savior and I just needed to find something other than Facebook to spend time away from all the political division within the country and focus more time with others that are of the same faith and interests as I am. I do realize that there is much to learn about this website and how to interact, but I am quite excited about getting to know others and praying for others in need. Thank you so much!
  6. Hi everyone! I am a 29 year old married, stay at home mom from the Midwest, USA. I am a conservative Christian in a highly athiestic/agnostic area - and on top of that, I am incredibly shy! So not only is it tough to meet like-minded people, it's tough for me to meet anyone at all! We don't have a church as no local churches share our belief system! My interests are Christianity, reading, homeschooling, bird watching, and board and card games. I like Bible study, prayer and encouragement more than heated discussions or arguments over doctrine, but I do have some strongly-held distinctives that I will explain if needed but not assault anyone with. I would love to make some close friends or find a close-knit group, and prefer real-time chat but will try to be as active as I can on the forums. Blessings in Christ Jesus, Sarah (ShyMomma)
  7. Hi, I'm new. I was just trying to find other Christians out there to chat with. "Don't be unequally yoked." I had joined a few sights online, and I wanted something to balance the world out. Well, anyway, respond if you want. . . . There are no friend segments only followers. Will I be able to stay connected with certain people easily, or is there a roundabout way to things? . . . I live in Texas, also. I hope to hear from other Texans, as well as other places.
  8. Hello everyone! I am new to this site! My nickname is Devi. I am almost 20. I work at a daycare/preschool, and I am going to college to get my ECE degree. I love writing poetry, being outdoors, being with my family and boyfriend and pets, going to college and work, and listening to music. I'm quite shy, but I'm hoping to make a few new friends here! Preferably people around my age. God bless, everyone!
  9. I promise this is my last post in here for a while, lol. I'm just wondering if any young adults, age 19-23 want to get to know me? I'm almost 20 myself, and have yet to find a youngish person on this site since I've been chatting with people. But you are all very nice! Thanks for the sweet welcomes!
  10. Am looking to discuss the Wisdom of Sirach and all things connected with her.
  11. Dear Brothers & Sisters in Christ. I want to let you know that I need for you to pray for me. Because I am facing a impossible time in my life, as well as other difficult problems. Please pray that the Lord would help me to be closer to Him,protect me,deliver me,be more faithful to Him, guide me, & to safe guard my future. I also ask that Satan's plans for me & my family's life fail. Please remember us in your prayers. Tell your friends,family,pastor and church to pray for me & my family daily. Thank you very much from the bottom of my heart. Your Brother in Christ Anthony. <3
  12. I John 4:20, "If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?" I John 3:17, "But whoso hath this world's good, and seeth his brother have need, and shutteth up his bowels of compassion from him, how dwelleth the love of God in him?" Hebrews 13:1, "Let brotherly love continue." .

  15. I need some advice I am a (male) Christian teenager, and I have a really close, dear friend, who is a female. We spend a lot of time together and know each other really well, BUT both of us are totally against dating! Even so, everybody believes that we are, consequently freaking out both of our parents. Although we are not dating we see the possibility of it much, much later in life. Now my question is what should I/we do to stop people from thinking that we are dating. But it is also not as simple as that, we are close; during a ruff time of my life I tried to kill myself, she saved me and is the only one, to this day, to know of it! Because of that we both have an immense trust and Christianly love for each other. We meet every other week (at the coffee shop) to pray, read our Bibles, and talk. So in recap its a mess... you may not see why stopping a rumor (and our parents from freaking out) is so important, but once a rumor starts, if not stopped, it snowballs into something ugly! I try not to worry, however, about my reputation (what Man sees of me), but instead my character (what God knows of me), then let God handle my reputation. I would also ask advice from our youth leaders, but they would just say that we are dating (which we are not!). Anyways sorry for the long post, but its really been bothering me... Any good, Spirit lead, Christian advice??? P.S. We spend much more time together then that, generally week days 6-61/2 hours (mainly school), and on week ends 3-31/2 hours. I only mentioned the coffee shop, because that's what people get tripped up on the most. ~Jayme
