    Hello to everyone my name is Andy and i am a resident of north carolina . I am protestant but i am also a seeker and am somewhere on the fence . What i love most about Anglicanism is the warm welcoming spirit it embodies .. That coupled with its traditions and openess i find very inviting .

    Hello Gordon thank you ..North Carolina is a southern state in the United States on the eastern seaboard or the east coast .
    What later became our state was once a member of the original 13 colonies of great Britain. We are a state of a few million people with mountains , beaches and rows and rows of forrest and farmland in the middle . I live in the middle ..
    So how are things down under ?

    Thanks for the reply - it sounds like it has everything.
    It is currently our winter, and I ride a motorcycle so I always need to keep rugged up. Other then that life is good.

    Blessings, Gordon

    In relation to the USA I am pretty sure Australia and New Zealand are the deep south, unless we have penguins as members of the forum.

    OK no Nun jokes..... :)

    It was the winter after the Olympics and the city was clean an fired up for tourism the people made me feel very welcome. I enjoyed the visit no end, I must say the last day in January the city was covered in snow and it was very cold for a Queenslander. LOL

    The US park service campground in Buxton. Loved the night walks on the beach looking for ghost crabs and those beady little eyes.
