Introduction: My Name Here Ofra


(ofra netter) #1

Hi everyone, my name is :Ofra. I’m a jewish believer living in Toronto. Originally from Israel. I regularly listen to LET MY PEOPLE THINK, and find it very helpful in my personal attempts to understand the fast changing culture in which we live and the challenge of presenting the gospel to friends who consider themselves to be atheists. today i heard for the first time about CONNECT, so don’t know what to expect…hopefully good things…

@nettero, Welcome to Connect! Glad you have joined! I think you will soon find this community to be an encouraging and safe place to explore questions on christian faith and make new connections with other believers. I suspect your Jewish background will lead to some unique insights. Look forward to your participation on the forums.

Hi @nettero , so glad to meet you. Connect is a great place for discussion and sharing things concerning our faith. No matter what it is, there will be someone here who has the answer or access to answers to questions that we may have. Looking forward to hearing more from you and learning with you.

Welcome aboard @nettero. We are so glad that somebody told you about connect. This is a great platform to discuss issues that crop up in your everyday life. When there does not seem to be a rational response post the question here, and someone will assist with very thoughtful and caring ideas and commentary. I am also confident that you will lend Insight from your background and experience to those who are asking questions as well. God bless your journey. I hope to read your posts frequently.

thx lakshmi. are u on staff w/RZIM?


(Lakshmi Mehta) #7

No I am not. I just spend some time engaging in this community. I am a fellow believer who is on a journey to find answers to questions about the Christian faith and learn how to better articulate and respond to others. I come from a Hindu background and am drawn to questions that relate to eastern philosophies or practices.

Welcome, @nettero! We’re glad you’ve found us here on Connect. I also love that you are Jewish! Did you grow up believing that Jesus is Messiah or was that something you realised a later on?

hi Kathleen, thx for writing…i grew up on a kibbutz-a socialistic attempt at communal living…no mention of God, although i realized much later we were the very fulfilling of Biblical prophecy.
are u on staff w/RZIM?

ofra.
