    FWIW: Today, March 13, 2018, is the 18th Anniversary of the founding of the BaptistLife website and Discussion Forums.

    Check this list and see how many signed on as members when we had our last iteration of this website in August of 2004. By my observations, there are only 8 of us still actively posting from August 12, 2004. I'm not sure, but I think Bruce changed/updated this website three times between March 13, 2000 to August 12, 2004. I find it amazing how rapidly time passes these days.

    P.S. Want to read some interesting memories? Go to the top of this thread and read 51 replies (4167 views) to the thread starter.

    Happy Anniversary Everyone!

How do I send a bouquet of water balloons to this group set to pop at just the right moment. Oh, wait! This morning I could fill them with snow in Southeastern Virginia.

I remember one thing on which we all seemed to agree.

We agreed that no parent should leave a child alone with a megachurch pastor.

Any thought from the administrators or Bruce, our great benefactor, about a different software platform? I just wonder if this old PHP-BBS system holds back newbies from joining. This format has gone the way of the floppy disk on most parts of the internet.

I was not an early member, in fact I didn't know BL existed, until I was the subject of a post that was passed along to the Ga Baptist powers that be. It was about the GBC making me and another person leave our church because it supported CBF. The poster is still unknown. It got me in hot water, though I was totally unaware of it until I saw a printed copy of the post at a staff meeting. And it was true, we did have to leave, but it was not helpful.

After that, I dared not join here until I was able to take early retirement. Having known Bruce for a long time, I was delighted to be a part of this crazy band as soon as I could. So Happy Anniversary to Baptist Life, and thanks for the friendships that have resulted from my being a part of us!

Happy Anniversary...

I was here at or near the beginning. Left for a while... in and out a few times due to life’s busyness.

Still recall the old SBC net startup stuff.

Been a long... long time since.

Lots of worn out shoes on this life journey.

I have been here from the Start as Ed Pettibone. Then by some fluke I could not sign in while Trudy and I where on one of our road trips and I re registered with my initials.

It is good to see my old friend and former co Editor of BL.C, David Flick in this thread.

I know I’m not liked by many here. I argue hard and my data approach runs counters to many pre-conceptions.

But I appreciate the opportunity to sharpen my studies on Kingdom matters.
