I've been around a long time, first on the COGOP, then that other nameless place and then Jude2. I can truthfully say, that Jude2 was like a lifesaver for me. While living in TX, my family was very hurt by some experiences at the COGOP we were attending. I had lost all faith in leadership as well as the local body of that church. My family and I had been supporters of Cogop for a long time and now I just felt that the church basically shoved us out in the cold. I felt like no one cared about me or my family. It was a very hard time for us, but through it all, we kept praying for that local body to wake up to the damage they were doing. Then I found Jude2 just before we moved back to TN.
I lurked here for a very long time, and in so doing, found real caring, loving people..fellow believers who would openly discuss ideas and opinions. It was like a refreshing spirit came over my soul! Thank you Pastor Gary for being a wonderful cyber pastor and allowing us to have such a great family. It has been such a pleasure to meet everyone at the gatherings and what fun! I've watched us all grow in the Lord and become better workers for God!
And...as for this person that would say such hurtful things...we say "Bless him Lord"! He just doesn't know what he's missing!
