    Too many sugary choruses admittedly are bad for the body, like too many sugary deserts are bad for the figure and too much honey makes you sick. Prov.25:16.

    As for vegemite mate, I've got a couple of jars of Marmite I could send downunder for you if you are getting nostalgic. :laugh:

    I know a couple of blokes who lurk and have never established an account. Thinking about it, I'm slightly surprised some Continuing Anglican bishop like Mark Haverland or Peter Robinson is not a regular here.

    Alright the server team has gotten back, and it is now fixed. A really embarrassing issue that occurred because of a server update some months ago. Ughh. We should be all good now!

    "Shine Jesus Shine"? Can't say that I've ever heard that one. From the context of your message, I suppose I should be grateful! :laugh:

    Rexlion; you should thank the Good and Dear Lord that you have been spared it
    (NO THANKS now to Botolph !!!!)
    You have to do the nice hand clapping which livens up a dull service,of course. Is it the most popular hymn ? It is the one sung on every possible occasion (they all choose it for Confirmation, because it's the only one they know) for the youff.

    Hmm, to hear it for the first time, not bad at all. I'm sure it would get old if repeated often, as would most any song. I think a church which uses that sort of music could sing it 2-3 times per year and it would stay fresh and meaningful.

    Yep: As I said, honey is nice in small quantities but - "Too much honey makes you puke."

    I quite like it still, a couple of times a year but it can easily be killed dead by a poor organist or inappropriate musianship and like all new innovations and 'choruses' it will probably not have the enduring quality of a good Wesley brothers hymn and certainly not an equivalently nourishing theological content.

    I tried to sign up last November and was unable to and sent an e-mail after several attempts to create an account. Received an e-mail yesterday that the issue has been resolved, and here I am! Glad to join you all at last.

    Lots of twists and turns in my journey--which I will share at some point--but I keep coming back to Anglicanism. At forty-one, and after a very tiring two decades with Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy, I don't think any other spiritual tradition could ever be home.

    Welcome, glad you persisted and finally triumphed over adverstity. In the Anglican church there is freedom to be as stodgy or wired up as God makes you. :laugh: Feel free to put your oar in and make way together.

    I had the same sign up issue as well since last October. Finally got through yesterday! So thankful, been lurking for awhile wanting to share.

    I, too, tried joining at an earlier date (can't remember when exactly) and for some reason it didn't work.
