Default Welcome to the Winter Joys and Concerns Circle

Well, better late than never....
(Maybe my New Years' Resolution will have something to do with scheduling)


If you need a prayer/good thought/healing energy(or whatever term your faith or tradition embraces) put it here.

If you have a joy that you want to briefly share, here's the spot.

This is for all denominations and traditions.
There will be no debating of whose truth is "right".
This won't be a good place for asking questions about the details of one another's religious/spiritual practices, just a shady, sheltered spot for dropping your cares and counting your blessings.


On a practical level, this will be a bit like the "chitchat" threads in other forums- each month (assuming this proves to be a good idea ) a new circle will be started and the one from the previous month closed.
The biggest difference between this and the other monthly threads is that this will focus entirely on our joys and concerns (Somewhat like the prayer request thread) rather than being a catch all for any and all subjects. It will be, maybe, a bit overmoderated for a while to ensure that we get in the habit of NOT using it as a "chitchat" or Q&A(I sure hope that made sense)

There will be changes, no doubt, as we go along and I'd absolutely welcome feedback by private message if you have suggestions for making this a welcoming, useful spot for sharing those matters that want sharing but don't quite want a thread of their own.

As the nights grow cold, may your hearths stay warm and as the days grow short, may your candles glow brightly.

"The year has turned its circle,
The seasons come and go.
The harvest all is gathered in
And chilly north winds blow.
Orchards have shared their treasures,
The fields, their yellow grain,
So open wide the doorway-
Thanksgiving comes again!"
