Hello - March 26th 2010, 11:53 AM


Im Jazz and Im obviously new. A little background info to say why I am here...

I recently left a fundamentalist sect. Anyone who has gone down the same path knows that the leave is extremely painful. I want to offer advice to anyone who has made the decision to leave their fundamentalist church, or to gain comfort and advice with the millions of questions that I have reguarding this path that I have chosen.

Hey Jazz. I love your username.
My name is Kac and I'm a Buddy here. I am also the forum mod for Religion/Spirituality and Science and Philosophy, so I hope you come in there and make a post about leaving your sect. I don't know much about that kind of thing and I love to learn.
I'm here anytime you need me or if you have any questions--just send me a PM! I look forward to seeing you around!

There is always hope. PM me anytime.

Hey, Welcome to TH!

Just wanted to direct you to two threads that are stickies at the top of this forum which you may find helpful. How to use the forums and Obtaining Support and Advice. I'm sure you'll be able to find other users who will have some similar experiences to you or will at least have some valuable input.

If you have any questions let me know, you can contact any user through their profile page. I look forward to seeing you around!

Hey Jazz,

Welcome to TH!!!
This is a really awesome site and everyone is really nice and helpful. It must have been hard to leave your sect, i can't say I know what that experience is like, but I will be glad to give you advice and support with anything.
I would also recommend checking out the chatroom, I don't enter there much but I hear it is awesome and I've find it awesome when I enter.
I hope you enjoy your time with us and if you ever need anything, you can PM me or send me a VM.
I hope to see you around sometime,

I think we will start having to number all the Jazz's on this site. You can be number 3. Anyway, that's great you are offering to help others! I'm sure all your help will be much appreciated. Feel free to check out the blogs on this site. They are great for venting and just getting stuff off your chest. As I always feel better after letting things out somewhere. If you ever have any questions or just need a chat buddy, I'm always here!
Take care,

Whatever it is, chances are I've been there.
If I can make it out, you can too.
