They could honestly make the sound more rock concert-ish and it would be an improvement.

Perhaps the Lord is calling brother Maverick into the music ministry. He certainly has a heart for that aspect of worship and I hope and pray that his wisdom is given its due attention.

Ramblinman, I appreciate your comment. If the Lord is calling, I will try to do as young Samuel did: sit here and say, "Here I am," waiting for instructions from on high. :)

But approach with thought and prayer the question of whether to tell the pastor or other leaders about "our lifestyle." :shock:

Sadly, you're right. And yet, I believe the truth is on our (the naturists') side.

I'm Orthodox. And again, judging by the results of the survey. I'm alone. :(

Orthodox is a rich tradition which can teach us all a lot. I once heard a conversation between an Orthodox and a member of Navigators. The Orthodox asked, "How do we get closer to God." The Navigator answered, "By studying God's Word". The Orthodox said, "Isnt it by worship." I said, "You two have just defined the difference between Western and Eastern Christianity." To me one of the most powerful concepts in Orthodox teaching is that we take on the diety of God. As it says in 2 Peter 1:3. Keep preaching and practicing your Orthodoxy. The body is built up by all of its various parts. Blessings.
