👋 The Introduction Thread

Nice. I have a sister who is a big Tolkien geek. She hasn’t read The Silmarillion yet, but yeah.

EDIT: Well, I know for sure that she’s a geek when it comes to Middle-earth stuff, but I don’t really know if she’s very well-knowedged in Tolkien’s other works.

Hey, welcome to the forum!

I wish I knew more about Tolkien, but I loved the movie trilogy (The Hobbit trilogy was fun but forgettable) and I’ve been enjoying The Rings of Power so far at least.

Oh hey that’s super cool! It’s awesome having pastors in the community. :3 What kind of church do you have? Do they know you’re a furry?

Yes they do! We are a furry based online congregation. We believe that no matter who you are and were your story is that one deserves to walk with the lord

Welcome to FFC! It’s nice to see a furry congregation online; they’re pretty rare.

I definitely agree there! :smiley: Do you ever deal with people who don’t like a pastor being a furry?

Ooo, Canadian Bible, eh?

Canadian Bible? What’s that refer to?

Ayyo- name’s Tempo. 23 years and have been a follower of Jesus for as long as I can remember (though I’ve gotten my life back on track this past year and have been more actively pursuing him as we’re called to do). I won’t go into all of the personal details here, but I’ve known about this forum since I was 17 actually (when I first found the fandom) and decided in my pursuit of answers and (hopefully) closure on a deep and personal topic that I would finally bite the bullet and stick my head in the doorway.

Oh hey, welcome! I think our stories are fairly similar to some extent! :3 Though I’ve been around a bit longer. Welcome! It’s great to have you!

Hey all!
My name is Marc, and I’ve been a Christian (non-denominational) since birth, recently having experienced major growth in my walk with Christ. I am a part time staff member at my church, and my hobbies include piano, Rubik’s cubes, and photography. Although I have known about this fandom for a bit now, I have only just convinced myself to try and participate due to some past trauma around the topic. I was so thankful to find that there are other Christians who participate in this fandom!

Hey, welcome!

You’re welcome here! I do hope you can feel safe and be yourself!

I’m a pianist too! What style do you play?

Hey Sleet!
Thank you for the warm welcome! I typically play modern worship songs, but I’d love to learn jazz at some point.

Oh wow, jazz is hard! You gotta learn a lot of theory.

That’s very fair! It does help that I seem to have a decent bit of extra time at the minute. What about you, what style(s) do you play?

Hey, I don’t mean to clog up the wrong chat, but is the telegram down? I tried joining but the link seems to be dead.

Mostly classical, though if I had people to play with I liked playing jazz/blues/rock!
