We are unashamedly proud followers of Christ and our mission-statement aims to galvanize the Christian Faith in today's environment! We grant, but make no apologies for the fact, that this unavoidably colors the lenses through which we look at and interpret concepts relating to life-and-matter.

We all have our own sets of paradigms that determine how we interpret reality, and we will therefore obviously differ from each other on many aspects!
It is imperative therefore that we agree to respect each others' views, acknowledging that we are all searching for the truth, and accepting the fact that none of us have all the answers.
It is also hoped that this forum will help anyone who might be losing their faith to find new meaning of in this life as well as the assurance of Everlasting Life after we die.
I hope that our mission-statement will enhance the quality of our Christian spirituality. I hope that it will deepen our awareness regarding our social responsibilities.
It is a prerogative of our faith that we are called to help those less fortunate than ourselves.
We are also called to become more pro-actively involved in caring for the environment and all matters regarding life-and-matter.
Our driving principal behind our mission-statement is the conviction that God's Word as we receive it in the Bible, and God's Handiwork as we discover in His Creation, cannot be contradictory. Any perceived contradictions can only be due to incorrect interpretation of either the one or the other - or maybe even both!
Both John the Baptist as well as our Lord Jesus Christ launched their ministries with the slogan rendered in Greek as "Metanoia!". In the New Testament this term is usually translated as “Repent!”.
(Mathew 3:2. and Mark 1:15 NLT).
According to Wikipedia:
"Metanoia (from the Greek μετάνοια, metanoia, means changing one's mind) In the context of theological discussion, where it is used often, it is usually interpreted to mean repentance.
However, some people argue that the word should be interpreted more literally to denote changing one's mind, in the sense of embracing thoughts beyond its present limitations or thought patterns (an interpretation which is compatible with the denotative meaning of repentance but replaces its negative connotation with a positive one, focusing on the superior state being approached rather than the inferior prior state being departed from)".
In other words, this is a call towards “life-changing expanded thinking, and enhancement of our concept and knowledge of God”! A call to embrace Grace and Redemption as inspiration towards spiritual growth rather than being bogged down by guilt over past indiscretions and the urge to then continually doing penance in an attempt to assuage this guilt!
We believe this calls for us to remain mentally abreast of all developments concerning both Religion as well as the Natural and the Social Sciences. In other words we must be equipped to help each other to not only “talk-the-talk”, but also to “walk-the-walk” with our concepts continuously being founded on contemporary fact!
Please feel at home and that you are among friends. Participate and contribute to the discussions and I pray that our mission-statement will inspire you in your own quest.
Do you have any news, a story, or an insight that would inspire us?
Could you possibly help a fellow soul who might be vexed by questions and doubts?
Are you feeling disappointed?
Are you searching for the truth and don't know where to look?
Are you aware of any initiatives that need help and encouragement?
Do you have any specific passions and recommendations?
Please share it all with us!
We are all helpers as well as seekers. Let us build a forum where we can join hands and help each other to stay focussed on both living aswell as propogating our faith.
May we always reflect the love of Jesus to light our way?
