Food for thought (see link below). On the one hand Christians showing love and fellowship with others, but then on the other hand are they opening themselves up to practices and teachings they should stay away from?

Its not showing love and fellowship. Its showing hatred of God. Its using the name of God to lead people into demonic activity.
The priest who has instituted this, like many Anglican ministers, is a wolf in sheep's clothing.
Disturb us Lord, when we are too pleased with ourselves. When our dreams have come true because we dreamed too little. When we arrived safely because we sailed too close to the shore. Disturb us Lord, to dare more boldly. To venture on wider seas. Where storms will show your mastery; Where, losing sight of land, we shall find the stars. We ask you to push back the horizons of our hopes; And to push into the future, in strength, courage, hope and love.                     (SIR FRANCIS DRAKE 1577)

I will admit I am getting sick of 'mindfulness'  :embarrassed: I can't seem to get away from it, it seems to be everywhere. Many people think it is harmless I am not so sure, but I did come across this article (see link below) that I rather liked and found funny and a breath of common sense regarding such :D
