  2. The forums in the Christian Congregations category are now open only to Christian members. Please review our current Faith Groups list for information on which faith groups are considered to be Christian faiths. Christian members please remember to read the Statement of Purpose threads for each forum within Christian Congregations before posting in the forum.
  3. Please note there is a new rule regarding the posting of videos. It reads, "Post a summary of the videos you post . An exception can be made for music videos.". Unless you are simply sharing music, please post a summary, or the gist, of the video you wish to share.
  4. There have been some changes in the Life Stages section involving the following forums: Roaring 20s, Terrific Thirties, Fabulous Forties, and Golden Eagles. They are changed to Gen Z, Millennials, Gen X, and Golden Eagles will have a slight change.
  5. CF Staff, Angels and Ambassadors; ask that you join us in praying for the world in this difficult time, asking our Holy Father to stop the spread of the virus, and for healing of all affected.
  6. We are no longer allowing posts or threads that deny the existence of Covid-19. Members have lost loved ones to this virus and are grieving. As a Christian site, we do not need to add to the pain of the loss by allowing posts that deny the existence of the virus that killed their loved one. Future post denying the Covid-19 existence, calling it a hoax, will be addressed via the warning system.
  7. There has been an addition to the announcement regarding unacceptable nick names. The phrase "Let's go Brandon" actually stands for a profanity and will be seen as a violation of the profanity rule in the future.

    Hi there everybody!!!

    Just wondering if some of you guys can give me something unique on your native tongue and other qualities as well.

    Example in my home here in the Philippines especially the tagalog language:

    "babababa? bababa."
    pronounced right its already a question and answer dialouge which means "is this going down? its going down."

    Hoping to hear from you all!!! [​IMG]
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Thanks Marmalade!!! [​IMG]

    I think its hard for others to be interested coz its difficult to find something unique in their own tounge.
    I know i did. [​IMG]
    It took me a long time to find something unique in my own language.

    Ill try to find an english-tagalog dictionary here and tell you in all my best how to pronounce it right.

    Take care!!! [​IMG]

    I think the english language has a lot of slang or expressions that seems to change season every now and again but is generally a trend. [​IMG] ok, that had really nothing to do with the topic... oh well ^_^

    eh?
    yup. i'm from Canada, and in Canada we are constantly joked and bugged about snow shoes, living in igloos and saying "eh" pronounced (aaay!)
    i agree with the english slang bit...
    (on a side note, would the waaazzzuuup commercial constitute unique and native ? [​IMG] )

    I'm from Missouri, nothing special about that, but the part i'm in is hick-ville, we say things like yall(you all) ex. Yall going to town today? or Youns (a form of you, meaning more than one)Youns need to clean up the chicken coup, ya hear? It really is very nice! I find it exciting! You know how far out in the boon-docks you are when the word yall is exciting!! I'm a dork!

    So I pray that God, who gives you hope, will keep you happy and full of peace as you believe in him. May you overflow with hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

    Hi there Georgia!!!

    I have a suggestion so that you wont have to type your signature verse everytime you post.

    Go to the post in which you will edit your avatar and you will find that you can edit your profile as well.

    you will find that at the bottom a slot for signature.

    write your signature verse and edit.
    you will have now the option to post your signature also.

    I hope im right [​IMG]
