                                                  Guidelines for comments

                                                  1. We want our pages to be thought-provoking, though pleasant and edifying reading material for our visitors.
                                                  2. We walk in the light of the Kingdom of Heaven, are known in person to everybody out there - and we expect the same from you.
                                                  3. Short, sensible, fair, to the point comments are most welcome and will take preference.
                                                  4. Long-winded comments clutter our pages and will only be published in exceptional cases. The same accounts for anonymous or rude comments.
                                                  5. Once your comment has been successfully submitted, you will receive an email at the email address you specified. You must click the link in the email before your comment will be visible on the page.
