How to comment

First, click on the word "comments" at the bottom of the post. A box will appear, and you can type your comment in this box. If you do not have a google account, please type your name at the end of your comment, like a signature, so we know who you are.

Then you need to select from the drop down menu at "comment as"--choose "anonymous" if you do not have an account or a URL. But if you post as "anonymous" -- please be sure to sign your name!

After you make this selection, click on "post comment." You will be asked to type in some letters to prove that you are not a spam machine. You may need to do this multiple times, but eventually the comment should be sent to me for moderation.

Your comments are precious to me. I treasure each one. Every honest question is welcome, and differing viewpoints are respected. As we dialogue, please adhere to the following guidelines:

1. Be kind. Even if you disagree with something, remember that "love covers over a multitude of sin" and make kindness the tone of your response.

2. Be true. If you are ashamed to leave your name, then as we consider your comments we will "consider the source" as well. Ask real questions, not "devil's advocate" ones.

3. Be encouraging.  This is supposed to be a community, so let's use it to encourage one another as we inquire and grow.

4. Be careful.  If something makes you really mad (I hope not, but it might happen), and you feel the need to respond... please consider typing out your response and then waiting 24 hours and rereading (and editing) before you post.

I reserve the right to delete any and all comments that are contemptuous, nasty or insulting, as well as any that use offensive language.
