Re: The Christ Family

I recently came across this forum and after reading some of the posts, I felt compelled to comment. Wow! A blast from the past indeed. I traveled with the Christ family back in the 70's and early 80's. Spent many years on the road, bare feet, white robe, and in faith. I too had the opportunity to meet many wonderful brothers and sisters including Aaron, Barry, Michael, Rachel, Margaret, Abraham, Anthony, Gene, Stuart, William, Joseph, Sarah, and Becky....There were so many. Like sonshineshell, I did not spend a lot of time in camps or on buses. Most of the time was spent in the wind. I lived the keys (no ksm). I guess my experience was quite different. I was never made to do anything, or to think in any specific way. During my years in the robe, I experienced many spiritual events that cannot be summed up to coincidence. I was aware of my surroundings and witnessed these events with my own eyes. I witnessed brothers and sisters giving of themselves to those in need. Such as giving monies (that were given to us:)) to a single mom for groceries, to a brother getting attacked by brutes that resulted in fixing his bad back. I witnessed a brother bring a man back from the brink of suicide one night at a rest area in New Mexico. So many memories! Maybe some brothers and sisters went gaga over Lightning Amen? I can only speak for myself. When I met him at the camp in Blythe, along the Colorado River, I just saw another brother. I didn't hang out long. I was walking in faith, not to the instructions of any one person. I just wanted to take this opportunity to give thanks to all those that put up with all my questions and kept me company along those many long roads. I did not personally leave any children to join, but my heart goes out to the families and members thereof who have been so negatively affected by the group. Truly, it was never my intention to hurt anyone. I too believe that those who truly seek the truth will find it. I guess in the end, I still have faith, still give thanks, try to forgive, and still vegetarian :) I was vegetarian before the robe :) Peace out!
