What has C-R done for you? What can you do for C-R? In the time I've been here I've watched some change in individuals...they appear to have come with one thing in mind and become, grown into something else over the course...has that happened to you? 17th used to chuckle about how few of us are here actually in conversation...I think that had and has some validity...how much better would it be with 200 active posters rather than a couple dozen? The group that is here has provided me valuable thought, contemplation and links to other valuable thought and contemplation. The people here have personalized and let me further into their beliefs than I have been able to go before...I'm thankful. I do tell people about C-R on one hand...but don't push it on the other, I think I may be protective of my space here...Am I worried about what I discuss here vs. w/coworkers, family, friends, church members? I don't think so....but why don't I encourage them more to get out of this what I and others do? When some kid comes on a school project and asks us a question and we as a group write his/her paper for them...is that valuable for them? I think I've posed enough topics and tossed out enough questions to allow this thread to go in a plethora of directions and be completely underailable as everything will be appropriate to the OP.
