Our guidelines for comments are:
1. Be kind. Assign positive intent to one another. Read and respond from a place of generosity. Try to always remember that there’s a real person on the other side of the screen and respond to others as if you were face-to-face with them. Withhold your assumptions and be gentle with one another. 
2. Be brave. Or at least, be willing to try out bravery. See what it feels like to use theological language (aka God Talk) that you're not used to. 
3. Honour difference. We do not allow disrespectful comments about race, religion, culture, sexual orientation, gender, nationality, political affiliation, body size, ability or identity. Different perspectives are more than welcome.
4. Take turns. Post and comment on the posts of others. Everyone has something to give and something to receive. 
5. Be wise. Before you share the most sensitive thing you’ve ever shared, remember that not everyone can follow this trustworthy rule. Be wise about what you disclose. This is still the internet.
6. Don’t spam, promote, or troll. Any multi-level marketing, fundraising, outside affiliate links, off-topic, self-promoting posts or solicitations for money will be removed.
