Newbie! Hi everyone! I'm Tish, in southern California. I'm so glad to have found this Web site. I'm a life-long Episcopalian, but visit other churches, like Calvary Chapel, here in town. I answered an altar call a long time ago, when The Cross and the Switchblade came out. I have rededicated my life a few times over the years since then. I investigated some other Christian forums, and chose this one because of the sense of camaderie here. Everyone seems to like each other and get along pretty well. I enjoy reading, especially mysteries, and also read Christian books. I would like to thank the moderators for approving my application. I filled it out at work, so it was done quickly, and I could have done a better job if I'd been at home taking my time, but they approved me anyway, and I appreciate it. I'm looking forward to "meeting" everyone and getting to know the community better. Dean, you're a hoot. I'll be looking in the different forums and reading more posts over the next few days.
