Was your class the one that did the Wiz at graduation? I worked on Gilead when it moved to 12th floor of 30 building.

I don't know what you mean by Wiz....but yes, during our class we moved to the upper floor of the 30th building...(with a beautiful view), and a terrace we could access during coffeebreak.
A short time after I graduated, another friend of my homecountry went through Gilead and said to me: It was like coming into the truth all over again. That struck me like lightning, because for me it was a very non-spiritual experience. I hoped to learn some hebrew and greek and about the origen of the bible...because I would maybe have to defend christianity up against a foreign 'pagan' religion. But none of that happened. I went to my assignment trying to keep the 'true-believers-feeling' I had in my homecountry and during my childhood. Gilead took away the magic my belief had up to that moment. Eversince (30 years) I have been fighting to keep that magic alive somehow.
There is no magic i'm afraid, just bunch of hocus pocus, words written by control freaks who think they are Gods spirit annointed.
Welcome Not sure yet, it's great to have you and read your experiences.
If you have been reading this forum you will have found AllTimeJeff and AwakenedatGilead's experiences were similar in some ways.
I look forward to hearing more of your life after Gilead.
Not Sure Yet,
