Study Room Guidelines

Ok it isn't so quiet in here but our resident librarian will ensure that there is good discussion on literature, prose, poetry, etc. You may also post sermons, notes, and the like as long as it is not copyrighted material and within reason of the post length regulation.

We encourage you to take a lose look at the threads and offer honest and useful input. This forum is a place where we discuss literature of any media, as well as personal creations by some of our own wordsmiths. Debate is encouraged, but we often find ourselves relaxing here.

    family-2485714_1920.jpg



    True fortitude has always been the strength to feed your family,
    To survive when all around are giving up on life;
    Facing trials as they come with one eye on eternity,
    Despite your pain and troubles, staying faithful to your wife,


    Staying grateful when the hard days come and stretch out into weeks or months,
    Knowing that the things you have are more than you have lost;
    Not giving in to promises of easy wealth and influence,
    Taking time before you sign to truly count the cost;


    The strength to listen to a friend,
    Admit what you don’t know,
    Seek the truth together
    In a way that you both grow;


    Tell the truth when it still hurts
    And gaze at your own flaws;
    Revive a habit left inert
    That points to higher laws;


    Clarify a vague unease
    To see what can be done
    To stop a creeping vile disease
    Before its course has run;


    Rectify a thoughtless act,
    Redeem a broken soul;
    Lead them back into the light
    With fresh and healthy goals;


    Laugh at unfounded, nagging fears
    That held your heart in chains
    When their true nature has appeared
    And you can breathe again.


    Stand strong against each foe and woe,
    Defend the light you’ve grown;
    Be more than just an outward show,
    And know you’re not alone.
