Dear Friends,

I've decided to get involved with a direct kind of internet ministry and so will move on from here, although I reserve the right to post here once in a while!

I think my cantankerousness of late was indicative of a need for a change of direction.

Having prayed about it and sought guidance, I have made, I believe, a good choice.

Please forgive me a sinner.

Thank you for everything.

May God bless!

Alex

Oh no Alex! Not again! I for one will miss your wisdom and wit. Tell me more about your internet ministry though? I might could use it. I hope you will keep in touch on a regular basis. Good luck! By the way, has the prayerbook arrived? Don

Alex,

You have to stop saying 'good bye' like this!! biggrin

Who will now have the greatest amount of posts?!

Whenever I saw your name on all the new postings, I knew that there would be interesting reading. That is what is truly amazing with you...they were never redundant and you always managed to keep things upbeat!

Your theological acumen, humour, and perspective are really one of a kind, and I truly think that persons with your God gifted charism of transcending cultures in HIS love CAN make a difference. Both lungs of Christ's church need you, and I pray that whatever this ministry is, that it will be fruitful. PLEASE let us know, so that we can spread around the good news.

May our Lord and Saviour bless you and your work abundantly, and may His Mother, our Lady Theotokos protect you and guide you....

Christ is Risen!
A Sister in Christ,
Alice

What a bunch of suckers you lot are! Every month or so, Alex develops some new scheme to try and escape from the Forum, only to beg off and come back a few days later. I'm not falling for this latest one. No sirree! Just you wait and see. He'll be back within a week and this will be all forgotten.

Those of you who lose the bet on this can pay me in American currency mailed c/o my usual address!

But Alex,

Isn't this forum a type of direct internet ministry?

Dear Tibubut,

Yes, it is!

And I haven't left here, I just feel called to do something other than do what I have unfortunately have been doing here lately - argue over silliness.

I think I'm also done talking about church history, theological differences and inter-church conflicts.

I've said more than my fair share smile .

And I don't care if I don't ever make 10,000 posts.

In any event, God bless!

Alex

Ok Alex,

I will take the bait. What are you "called" to do?

Dear Johan,

Actually, intercessory prayer for others and writing for publication as well as some other things that are developing. The internet thing is a project in the works.

This excellent forum has become a form of addiction for me and it is not fair to it or to you and the others here.

It is not fair for me to dominate it as I have been and as others have told me I was doing.

It is not fair for you and others here to have to put up with my being cantankerous.

I've been sinfully seeking out myself and my ego here and I've finally come to realize that.

I'm happy with my current direction that I've worked out with my spiritual counselor and I wish you and everyone else here every blessing from On High!

God bless,

Alex
