I wondered if it may help to have a Glossary of acronyms/meanings for those who don't know what we are on about, but happen to stumble into Papa's Home.

Please add to the list if you can! It would be nice not to have our own language...but it's easier sometimes winking smiley

OOTB = Out Of The Box; outside traditional religion's four walls - could be in thought, if not actions
ITB = In The Box; see above
PH = Papa's Home !!!
TGJ = The God Journey
BTW = By The Way
TBH = To Be Honest (well shouldn't you be honest anyhow?)
OTOH = On The Other Hand
YMMV = Your Mileage May Vary

Every day people are straying away from the church and going back to God.

How about:

IC - Institutional Church (aka Box)
IMO - In My Opinion (or the variation, IMHO = In My Humble Opinion)

WTG is Way to Go? that's pretty simple, I should have figured that one out.

I bet these acronyms come from the world of text messages, don't they? That is a world I'm outside of, kind of like skateboarding.I will just have to consult Glossaries such as this one, in order to fit in.

Oh come on, I had you picked as a skateboarder, who could TXT whilst riding the rails...well okay, maybe not...winking smiley
But I don't think you'll need to know this stuff to fit in; you are already part of the furniture!

>>>>whew<<<< that's a relief. Just picture me as a flowery overstuffed armchair, hopefully when people sit on me, I don't poke them too badly...
