I logged in the new site and frankly I'm not so excited as Rick and Meredtih.
One Croatian poet wrote 100 years ago
"In the world of changes, only change constant is."
I know that change always brings us good things (directly or indirectly)
but as my sisters and brothers noted here before me, service to brothers and sisters shouldn't have price tag.
For me it is choice to by food for my children or to pay the fee for the forum. The choice is very clear to me.
I'll miss thoughts of people which grow to my soul in last two years, but we will gather again in some better place which wan't bind us with money which become such a big issue in our lives.
Human government in the conduct of material affairs continues to function throughout this age of relative progress and perfection. The public activities of a world in the first stage of light and life which I recently visited were financed by the tithing technique. Every adult worker--and all able-bodied citizens worked at something--paid ten per cent of his income or increase to the public treasury, and it was disbursed as follows:
1. Three per cent was expended in the promotion of truth--science, education, and philosophy.
2. Three per cent was devoted to beauty--play, social leisure, and art.
3. Three per cent was dedicated to goodness--social service, altruism, and religion.
4. One per cent was assigned to the insurance reserves against the risk of incapacity for labor resultant from accident, disease, old age, or unpreventable disasters. P.625 - §1
This is ideal which will one day rule on this world two, but I think we wan't be here to enjoy it
For example in Croatia through different government wages people 45% of their income.
And again it is problem to get educated and receive health care if you don't have money.
The one who have more gets better education and health care.
So, for all on this forum who thinks that my thoughts made them smile and even had some value send me personal message and we can exchange e-mail.
Alina, my soul sister. we will keep in touch (by the way it is snowing again)
Menno, thank you on the book. At the moment it is at one special person which I managed to interest in the Kingdom of Heaven.
J.R. - you were my great inspiration.
Bonita - thank you on your swift and fast mind (and tongue). You always made me (re)think my conclusions and ideas.
Rick - your OPAD was one place to adjust my thoughts about red parts of the books. In Croatia I'm still alone in this Urantia adventure so This forum was only place where I communicated with other readers.
I wish you all happy journey.
I will keep my sight to new page but I will decide will I actively participate or not.
Until Father join us together again.
