    We used have "testimony time" in Church when I was a kid, usually on Wednesday nights, I think, where people would share with others how good God had been to them.

    I never saw it as "bragging" - and I wonder why we don't do that much anymore.


    (one of our pastors used to call it "popcorn testimony time" - stand up, speak up, shut up, and sit down)

    Enter the Church and wash away your sins. For here there is a hospital and not a court of law. Do not be ashamed to enter the Church; be ashamed when you sin, but not when you repent. St. John Chrysostom

    I recommend you do not try too hard and ...research as little as possible. Such weighty things give me a headache. - Shunyadragon, Baha'i apologist

    OK - but I often hear that as a supposed valid argument -- in fact, I think that was something I went round and round on with Sam.
