I am going to share about my personal experience of finding 8th Day, my initial thoughts and perceptions of the community, and why I choose to come back week after week. I’d also like to talk about why I’ve gotten involved at the level that I have. Lastly, I’d like to share my hopes for the future of 8th Day (as well as my hopes for staying an active member of the community).
For those of you who know about my time in Syria preceding and leading up to the conflict, and how circumstances led to my premature removal from the community there, you’ll know how important it is to me to have the opportunity to make meaningful farewells. And even though I see this as a farewell-for-now, it means a great deal to me to share these reflections.
