Re: So what’s the situation at Toowoomba Christian Fellowship? ----

Paul, Yes obviously a reference to one of CSL's works which I find some strong association with. But I understand he found the title from a William Wordsworth piece. Have a read and look at some of the commentaries. https://interestingliterature.com/2018/08/06/a-short-analysis-of-william-wordsworths...

Re: WEEKLY QUIZ

A Quick guess without googling - CF/RFI and Catholic - just the hierarchies/clergy (as opposed to its beautiful laity folks) Morag Z - Apostles of Fear. In the 2000's (cant remember when she published) Am I right Faith? Even if I'm not exactly, the first answer fits!! BTW I'm all for a bit of fun no...

Re: So what’s the situation at Toowoomba Christian Fellowship? ----

Boundary Rider and Streetcar folks, I’ll attempt to find a bit more light to shine into that dark black hole for weary and wary space travellers.

Re: Present Word - Former Toowoomba Leadership

No worries Faith, It would certainly seem that the "Present Truth" concepts of the CF movement in 2000-2015 seemed to include a "Truth" that building mansions, amassing large wine collections, expensive NZ ski trips, acquiring cattle properties and building cattle and dog breeding enterprises were i...

Re: Present Word - Former Toowoomba Leadership

Ha or hhhmmmppfff! Certainly a mixture of emotions! Never a truer and sadder word spoken Faith. The following 'REAL' data from the ACNC https://www.acnc.gov.au/ website would tend to support the truth of your satirical piece.

Re: Restoring my Soul daily devotions Friday 9th June 2017 Great distress and sorrow

Yeh Than a very distinct stench of character incineration of those pushed out, infused with a familiar pong of fear for those remaining. I think the psalmist was on the money in Psalm 62:9 men of low degree are only vanity and men of high rank ARE A LIE, in the balances they go up; They are together...
