Other Forums

 

  • Christian Way: a group of former Christian Scientists who are now Evangelical Christians. They also have an extensive and active discussion forum, to which anyone can contribute, and do so anonymously. The common thread being that most were once Christian Scientists, grew up in it, or at least had some contact with it. Interestingly, some practicing Christian Scientists actively and bravely participate in this forum. It is based in Phoenix, Arizona, USA.
