Proverbs 27:17 (New American Standard Bible)

17Iron sharpens iron,
So one man sharpens another.

Ok, I guess we can all agree on that one; we need each other to rub-up-against, in order to become sharper. Papa spoke to me today about this concept, making me realise that I CRAVE for that sharpening, particularly at an intellectual level. And as I examined how PapasHome came to be, I realised that in being a moderator, and the administrator, of this place, I was specifically removing myself from some of the hard tools in the cutlery drawer without even being aware of it; because people don't want to challenge me on my turf, so to speak.

So this is an apology. Sorry for being in the position where it seems I would be "untouchable". I am asking now that you good folk challenge me on anything and everything; I am not always right (ask Wifey!!!), and I need to have many of my rough edges knocked off. And no I am not going to take offence and ban you. smiling bouncing smiley Luv

I think most of us populating Papa's Home are rather like-minded. While that's comforting, it is good to get challenged from time to time by people who DON'T think like you! For me...it makes me look at what I believe more closely, to see if I REALLY believe that; and it exercises those skills you use when you have to talk to someone you disagree with but don't want to get all argumentative and in-your-face.

So....what we need here are more people who disagree with us!

O, by the way, I appreciated Wifey's challenge on another thread about conspiracy theories! That made me think!

I'm still here, guys. Just having a time of "writer's block" or whatever...I can't seem to get my thoughts or my ducks in a row enough to compose a decent post. Just wanted to let you know I have not totally gone "poof" from here...Lurk

Yay Phoebe!!!! I thought I had seen a little bird fluttering around grinning smiley Like Shell said; don't worry about having all your thoughts connected as a train...people sometimes complain that my train has left the station already without them!
