AANR's website costs nothing to join. They have a forum - using the same software as this site - that is sadly under utilized, IMHO. I still get the feeling AANR's leadership are not "digital natives" and don't see the value in an active forum.

Lots of older babyboomers don't get it. I am middle-aged, but I grew up with computers, albeit primitive by today's standard.

I agree, the AANR forum site is the least active of all it seems. Still, I'm a member, including paid membership and get both the digital and printed Bulletin.

Fig Leaf Forum is no longer an active site, but its archives are still accessible, or they were last I checked. It is a most valuable resource. I especially enjoy the fiction (a story of mine called The Ring was published there, and you could probably still find it if you were willing to dig through all the past issues) and the Scripture discussion section, where visitors discussed specific verses that relate to naturism.

When I first started to research naturism, one of the first sites I discovered was Clothes Free International (www.clothesfree.com). It's still up, and has historically had a very active forum section. It's not a Christian site, but I met a number of Christians on there, including our friends Desert Hiker and the late Jon-Marc.

Thanks jochanaan! I've stumbled across ClothesFree.com before. Maybe I'll dig through the Fig Leaf archives for your story.

I don't know how long John Kundert with Fig Leaf Forum will keep that site up and running.
If those articles are meaningful to you, I suggest making your own copy for your ongoing private reading.

Indeed. I checked out the site but can't figure out how to search for anything. It's not a big deal.
But there is the Internet Archive (https://archive.org/index.php) and their Wayback Machine, no flux capacitor required. They have archived the Fig Leaf Forum since 2000: http://web.archive.org/web/*/figleafforum.com

John Kundert developed a free-standing software tool called LISA that allows easy searching of the FigLeaf Forum articles.
Write to him to see if he can get you a copy.

The story is here too, under Worship in Song and Poetry. (I'd copy the link but I haven't figured out hot to copy and paste on the laptop I'm using.)

Thanks Ramblinman. A great story, or at the least the beginning to perhaps a longer tale.

Thanks. This story is complete in itself, although I have written some longer tales.
