"You have to work hard to offend Christians. By nature, Christians are the most forgiving, understanding, and thoughtful group of people I've ever dealt with. They never assume the worst. They appreciate the importance of having different perspectives. They're slow to anger, quick to forgive, and almost never make rash judgments or act in anything less than a spirit of total love . . . No, wait--I'm thinking of Labrador retrievers!" David Learn, 1998

Wall of Remembrance: David and Elaine Karber

The following dozen or so posts (in addition to those posted earlier) represent only a handful of those who have left or been driven out of Grace Brethren Church because they would not toe the leadership's party line. (Some of them did not want to be featured because God healed their wounds, used their pain or humiliation, and redeemed the wrongs done to them. They want to put these things behind them.)
