I have been a born again Christian for 11 years. My wife and I have been married for most of 6 years now. 5 years ago she was diagnosed with a very deadly form of leukemia; what one isn't? Throughout her treatments she remained diligent and patient. God definately revealed to us, the proper places,Doctor's, and questions. He gave my wife a complete remission for over 3 years now. This is miraculous in the eyes of science. I will talk about this whole subject another time. I praise God for all that he has done for all of us. I have a question regarding Church social protocol. Why must we continuously shake hands with a great many people. I believe that we can learn a great deal from our experiences. I have a significant medical background, and I will kindly share that many people are sharing pathogens. I don't mean to sound unfriendly,at all. I just believe that there should be another means to greet,and show our love for others in the congregation. I wouldn't even know what to propose. I'm sure that many of you are aware of the extremely easy passage of germs, through hand to hand contact. A few weeks ago, we had to use our pocket sanitizer over a dozen times. This is a prudent situation for us! I also believe that our churches should look at this considering the elderly, and even our youth. When I worship God, I like to do so as he says. I am stuck on this one. I believe that we started this type of greeting a few centuries back. Maybe we ought to take a close look at it. We will probably have substancially fewer people on our "immediate need" prayer lists.
