I don't love Jesus, but I love the beauty on Christianity (any religion actually), I also enjoy christian items very much. Am I allowed to join?

lauratai 04/27/2009 #

On my watchlist! :-)

dangerine 04/27/2009 #

What would Jesus do?

GingerS 04/27/2009 #

I love Jesus!

grannylove60 04/27/2009 #

Sure Sharila:)) If you enjoy christian/inspirational themed stuff, I invite you to join in the fun:))

Yes Dangerine...what would Jesus do? He would welcome anyone and everyone who enjoys sharing and receiving religious & inspirational things to come on in:)))

I think I'm going to change the description just a tad:)) I love Jesus because I know him as my personal savior. But I do realize that there are many other beliefs other than christianity and I do respect the beliefs of others. I want anyone and everyone, no matter what, whether they are a part of a religious affiliation or not to feel comfortable swapping with us:)))

I did the first one and am definitely going to join this one. Thanks for hosting another one. I love all the religious ones.

grannylove60 04/27/2009 #

Welcome Ginger & Alma:)) So glad to have ya'll swapping with us!!! Hope you enjoy:)

If I join could my partner send to another address? My mum in the UK would totally love to get this swap and I would love to send it but not receive? Is that possible???

Sharila 04/28/2009 #

Thanks Grannylove! I will join closer to the date:)

grannylove60 04/29/2009 #

Sorry Rachel that I haven't answered your question before. I don't see any problem with sending to another address. Just shoot a pm to your partner after they're assigned and let her know. That's so sweet of you have it sent to your Mum:)))

Grannylove what a blessing to be able to do this and you are to host this I hope you will host many more of these types of swaps. It is on watch list will join closer to date. Thanks again :)

I'm more spiritual than religious. When I do go to church it has to be a Unity church or Unitarian Universallist. But I am definitely into anything inspirational. Prefer stickers, bookmark, book, but definitely not a cross, praying hands or Jesus please. Am I welcome?

grannylove60 04/30/2009 #

Sure chuysgirl....I would love to have you swap with us:)) Really....I want anyone and everyone who appreciates religious/spiritual type items to feel comfortable here:))

I changed the name of the swap not because I am compromising my beliefs....not at all!!! I am christian and I am not ashamed to state my beliefs. But, I also at the same time have respect for every human being no matter what their background, religious beliefs, etc are.

I've cut back on swaps lately (postage cost) but this sounds great so I am going for it! Whoever gets me, I love silver or silvertone jewelry (no goldtone) as well as small notes or post-its.

I'm looking forward to this swap. Im a transplanted New York Jewish gal living in the fog of California. As a chaplain, myself, I appreciate whenever we can share the spiritual comforts of our paths and journeys with each other. We dont need to impose our beliefs on others to warmly support people walking a path of truth, whichever faith, or personal value system they use.

sorry to bug you but I was wandering if I could get my swap panters name. I am going shopping this weekend and I want toget the stuff for swap

AngieTheArtist 05/ 9/2009 #

I am under a lot of stress right now and I am joining swaps to try to get rid of lots of my craft stash. I may be able to do this one, but I am only comfortable sending items that uplift Jesus Christ. Isn't God good? I love the swaps you host, granny. You go girl.

almahill 05/12/2009 #

Sorry, but due to being sick I need to drop from this swap. When I am feeling better I will rejoin another one. Thanks alot.

misssarah01 05/14/2009 #

I am a chrisitan and would love a bookmark, a cross to hang up, any inspirational book, stickers, notecards, magnets - the only thing I don't want is a picture of Jesus (I already have several!). This is a great swap idea!

grannylove60 05/14/2009 #

Welcome everyone!!! I am so excited to have ya'll swapping with ue!!! Yippee....now I got another excuse to drive an hour to the nearest christian store:))) Just wish I could go more often:( Gosh, I could spend some serious money, lol.

lilrawker 05/16/2009 #

Hm...I want to join, but I definitely don't want to send out non-christian religious items. What if my partner lists in her preferences that she likes buddhist stuff? I dont think Id be comfortable supplying someone with items that are wrong in my eyes... No offence.

Would you consider doing an all-christian swap later on? Not that I dont like this one...but Id personally just be more comfortable.
