    I'm starting this thread to give the webmaster and moderators ideas on what needs to be on the Baptist Board. I know everyone on here has ideas on how to improve this board. This is not my board but I feel we as Christian Baptist might voice our opinion on what you feel the Baptist Board is missing. I for one feel we need an Inspiration Forum where God honoring stories and poems may be share with our Baptist brothers and sisters. I feel out of place when I put these in the humor forum where they don't belong. What are your thoughts and what would you add to the Baptist Board?... Brother Glen [​IMG]

    Agree. And testimonies, too!

    And maybe a spot to just post announcements of things that may be of interest to ALL Christians (not just Baptists)???

    Brother Glen, it's a great idea - even though Dr. Cassidy is pulling your legs. ;) Why don't you PM the Webmaster?

    The Baptist BBs are really great, and a true blessing. I wonder if it might be possible to add a signature option, where we could add an automatic closing and a favorite passage from scripture, quote, saying, etc.? :cool:

    May God bless.

    I would like a forum where we can list contact names of Baptists we have known through the years and lost track of. I think it would also help people to come to the board for just that purpose when the word gets out in the local churches. I know I have a whole list of people from various churches in the past, I would like to find again.

    Everyone has heard of Classmates.com so why not a Baptist location and connection service?

    A place to discuss Revelation/prophecy and it's fulfillment would be interesting. [​IMG]

    Love poems and hymns that are uplifting to my spirit or lifting high the worship of God. And some "Tomato Soup for the Soul" (I'm on a no-fat diet, so can't have chicken:eek: ) type stories would be a great blessing to my gizzard (there I go again, thinking about chicken).

    I personally like the way this is returning to its roots as a Baptist Board. God knows we seem to have enough diversity within Baptists that we don't need to broaden it out far . . . :rolleyes:

    Excellent ideas & posts. Testimonies, searches for friends, hymns, poems, childrens songs... I like the "Independent" thinking best! :D

    An Inspiration Forum has been added.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
