When I was trying to find a name for the blog, I wanted something to signify that this blog was not going to be all about me, but about us and voicing our experiences. I love group interaction. I’ve been honored to share quite a few personal stories from some of you. Many time I will make new posts out of your comments. Some of you have sent e-mails with ideas or concerns which have resulted in blog posts. Thank you!
I’d like to try something new and open this blog post for anything you would like to discuss. In our spiritually abusive churches, our communication was sometimes squelched. That’s not happening here. Your voice counts. What is on your heart?
You’ve got the floor – it’s all yours!
