This is a milestone in our groups history and one
I was not sure would come...
We have now over 1400 members in "Christianity and
Real Estate", the largest group in ActiveRain for those
who are real estate professionals and are Christians
in practice for their lives.
This group started on 01/25/2007, after a prompting
from God to me.
I felt ActiveRain needed a group that was a place where
real estate professionals who were active Christians could
go to encourage, build up and pray for each other.
As a result we were attacked almost immeadiately by
athiests who screamed "Fair Housing rules" to ActiveRain
staff, threatening a lawsuit.
Here are some links about what happened and what we
did about the situation:
Christianity and Real Estate? (We were NOT sure at this point if we would exist!)
A conversation with Jonathan Washburn..... (I speak to one of the owners of ActiveRain about our situation.)
Christianity and Real Estate !!! (What happened in the aftermath of the whole ordeal we went through)
After the time of testing we went through as a group, we were knit
together like a family. Many phone calls resulting in
prayers and much encouragement resulted in the group
becoming stronger as we went through this time of trial
and tribulation together.
We also went through a time when the whole group changed
because of the demands on the ActiveRain network as a whole
was being stressed because of the number of featured posts
that were being seen caused the network to give error messages
to everyone who logged in.
BUT we have overcome that also. Currently the number of
featured posts in groups is at a maximum of 4 at any one time.
Since we feature prayer requests, along with bible studies and
encouraging, uplifting posts, sometimes our Featured Posts list
moves along, pretty quickly.
Here is to ANOTHER 1400 new members in the largest
active group of Christian Real Estate Professionals in
the ActiveRain Real Estate Network!!!
(I am on someone elses computer at this time, or I
would do MORE with this post.....)
