Hi,

I'm not sure how successful this community will be, but I've decided to just try it and see what happens. God willing, there will be many people who come here, because I do believe a little hang out for new christians on lj is a good idea and needed. For now, I will be making a post every other day, and see if someone finds them interesting and comments. I will also be advertising this community at other journals in lj, but not at other places in the net.

If someone has an idea for a better style for this community, or when someone has a nice background image or something like that, please feel free to make a comment here. If you have a nice picture, please post it in the comment. I'm not sure if this community should be run democratically, I would like to but as of now I am its only member and it seems more practical to just let it run its course and trying to be as good an administrator as can be.

Please also let me know what you think of the text in the user-info, if you want something added or taken away, just speak your thoughts and I will read it and take it to heart.

Thanks for coming here, have a nice time and God bless!

This is a wonderful idea for a community and I hope that it gets the attention that it deserves. I'll try to contribute what I can.

Thank you archaist. If you make a post, at least I will comment :), promised. But we're already three on the members list.

A welcome to ghostthief too!

What a great idea! I am young, but have been a Christian for over 10 years and my heart is passionate about discipling new Christians. You're right--alot of times new converts fall away, because the devil is trying to win them back, other Christians force them back, or they are ungrounded in their newfound faith, like in the Parable of the Sower in Mt. 13:1-23. So I'm glad to join for now and be challenged by questions, offer answers I've found, and encourage my new brothers and sisters in Christ!

Welcome Kristyn!

You may expect some difficult questions though. Even though I have become a christian, there are still the same things that trouble me.
