    I'm with old lou. I prefer no clapping in church settings, but if they do I'll smile and nod my head.

    wow you make that sound like the Aussies are filled with infectious diseases ---- I think they might take objection to your thoughts ---- then again it might be your thoughts that are objectionable ---- then again some infectious etiologies are actually uncurable via penicillin or any other known medical treatment ---- and that should be a very scary thing to all those out there exhibiting "risky" behavior!!!!!!!!!!!!

    In any case I was at a Mennonite church last night during their annual Thanksgiving dinner. Mennonites are known for their very reserved behavior, and "older style" of dress, often called the "plain dressed people", "or the black hat suspender people" - nonetheless here in rural NY they make very nice neighbors, and are some of the few people you can always count on to help you out. So I occasionally attend their church or functions --- Last night the youth group sang --- and since the dinner was a mixed group of "non" mennonite people like me -- some clapped, and before you know it ---EVERYBODY was clapping, even the Mennonites, and In the past 2 years or so I had never seen the Mennonites clap at anytime. I am pretty sure --"clapping" in church, or for a recognition of people using God's gifts for singing, or serving --- is quite acceptable!!!!!!!!!!!! even in the most reserved churches!!!!!!!!!!

    I agree with many of the above sentiments. It is humbling merely to be able to play in the orchestra at church. I have had many to come up after church and express the appreciation of the worship and my contribution. It is totally appropriate to thank them. I was taught that it was "False humility" to say something like, "that wasn't me that was Jesus." It is gracious to take a bow, point to heaven and give God the glory. He is the central focus of not only our worship. but hopefullu our entire lives. I'd like to thank you for bringing up this subject. It is a good question. I feel privileged to be apart of ths TM forum. God Bless You All!

    There is another way to interpret he phrase "down under". Take this meaning as "the other way".

    Now your getting hot. Man are you getting hot. Time for another dose of antibiotic KT.


    So in keeping with the theme of this thread: Let us pray for you. Applause, applause.
