Dear Vince,

I understand what you are going through with the Christian communities out there. We live in a very conservative town in California where most of the churches are evangelical in nature. But we have found lots of individuals within the community who have been quietly looking for the kind of study we offer. It sounds like you already have developed close ties with those church groups over the years. Some may try to make it difficult for you to separate from them. I will be very interested in learning how your situation progresses.

Hi there, I'm Vince and I am new to the group. I have recently been attending the Theosophical Society of Wheaton, Illinois for the past month, and have been enjoying the various teachings and discussions at that facility.

My life has been rich with metaphysical experiences, but the Christian Fundamentalist churches that I had previously attended for twenty years got very judgmental towards me when I might venture to reference them. I also began finding many inconsistencies with the way that many Christians were representing the Bible, and my questions about Christianity were often deemed dangerous to people's religious faith.

I am looking for a place in the Theosophical Society wherein I may potentially freely discuss metaphysical issues as they directly pertain to my life, with people who are more open to such discussions. I am very well read with the Bible, although my interpretations of it are more metaphysical versus orthodox.

I look forward to constuctive discussion with the people here, and would like to learn more about the Theosophical Society and it's perspectives, insofar as many of them are brand new to me.

Thank you,
