As most of you are aware, we had a crash to forums and were down for over two days a while back. We did have to do an upgrade to the vbulletin software to fix the forums and that has created changes, VB no longer provide the hybrid or threaded forums. There are some issues/changes to the forums we are not able to fix or change. Also note the link address change, please let friends and posters know of the changed link to the forums. For now this is the only link available, https://forums.carm.org/vb5/ but if clicking on forum on carm.org homepage it will now send you to this link. (edited to add https: now working.

Again, we are working through some of the posting and viewing issues to learn how to post with the changes, you will have to check and test the different features, icons that have changed. You may also want to go to profile settings,since many of the notifications, information in profile, also to update/edit your avatar by clicking on avatar space, pull down arrow next to login for user settings.

Edit to add "How to read forums, to make it easier."
Pull down arrow next to login name upper right select profile, or user settings when page opens to profile,select link in tab that says Account. Then select/choose options, go down to Conversation Detail Options, Select Display mode Posts, NOT Activity, that selection of Posts will make the pages of discussions go to last post on last page rather than out of order that happens if you choose activity threads. Then be sure to go to bottom and select SAVE Changes in your profile options. You can then follow discussions by going through the pages, to the last page having latest responses. Then click on the other links Privacy, Notifications, to select viewing options,the forums get easier if you open all the tabs or links in your profile, user settings and select options. To join Super Member, pull down arrow next to login name, select User Settings and then click on tab/link at top that says Subscriptions.

Thank you for your patience and God Bless.

  • Growing Our Faith

    This morning I was reading The Red Sea Rules: 10 God-Given Strategies
    For Difficult Times by Robert J. Morgan and came across a short passage
    on faith building:

    Here tis:

    Says Morgan:
    "Lord, increase our faith,
    Lord, I believe, help Thou mine unbelief"

    I've often uttered these prayers, knowing that faith isn't something
    I can muster up at will; it must be given by God and developed
    according to the processes he has ordained.

    He is, after all, a God who grows things.
    Physically, each of us began life as a tiny speck. Its a marvelous cell,
    for all the characteristics of each person --- sex, eye color, shoe size,
    intelligence, and so forth --- are determined at fertilization by the baby's
    genetic code that resides in the forty-six human chromosomes in that
    one cell. We began microscopically, then grow. Faith is also a growing
    entity."
    End the Morgan quote

    _________


    So? So our faith might grow.
    Maybe we will find ourselves being more receptive to exercising more
    and more faith as the years roll along.

    Back on faith:
    I'm going to tell you a true story.
    (I got from The Red Sea Rules)

    There was once a father whose daughter (we will call her Mary)
    age 5, asked her father to build her a dollhouse. The father nodded
    and promised to build her one, then returned to reading his book.
    But glancing out the window, he say Mary, arms crammed with
    dishes and dolls, making trip after trip until she had a large pile
    in the yard. He asked his wife what Mary was doing.
    "Oh, you promised to build her a dollhouse, and she believes
    you. She's just getting ready for it."

    Now with that story in mind, read this:

    "People were bringing little children to Jesus for him to place his
    hands on them, but the disciples rebuked them. When Jesus
    saw this, he was indignant. He said to them, “Let the little children
    come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God
    belongs to such as these
    . Truly I tell you, anyone who will
    not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never
    enter it.”
    And he took the children in his arms, placed his
    hands on them and blessed them."
    Mark 10
