A Rather Unconventional Christian
Posted 05 May 2008 - 03:39 PM
Although I was raised Christian I've spent most of my life ignoring God and basically just doing what I wanted to do. Recently I've joined a new church and started on an Alpha course. I want to get to know God and live my life for Him.
I've suffered from depression and been a self harmer since the age of 12. I also suffer from anxiety and agorophobia. I'm struggling to put an end to my self harming once and for all, but it's hard because I've been addicted for 7 years now.
I've been an ethical vegetarian since the age of 13 and a vegan since I was 18. (This means no meat, milk, cream, cheese, eggs, honey, leather etc.) No whey!
I have 9 piercings (lip, tongue, nose, eyebrow, belly and two in each ear - stretched). Looking around at church, I feel like a rather unconventional christian!
It would be nice to get to know some of you, you seem like a nice bunch

Welcome to CTF Carrie! I hope you continue to like CTF and find it beneficial .
I went on an Alpha course last year and I really enjoyed it . It's awesome that you want to get to know God !
I have my left ear stretched too... to 4mm. Not very big, but I think they're awesome. I like piercings too, but I only want to get them on my ears. I have 5 at the moment .

having lots of peircings aren't new around here, a while ago we had a few members post pictures of their ears and there was alot of metal in their ears. (back in 2006) I personally don't have any piercings because I couldn't stand to put holes in my ears
How would telling people to be nice to one another get a man crucified? What government would execute Mister Rodgers or Captain Kangaroo?

Nativity, once in the main of light,
Crawls to maturity, wherewith being crown'd,
Crooked elipses 'gainst his glory fight,
And time that doth gave
Doth now his gift confound.
Silly boys, trucks are for girls!

Nah, I'm joking. I hope you enjoy your stay here though.
