I'm a law/journalism student writing a feature article on life after ex-communication (whether you were voluntarily ex-communicated or not doesn't matter).  I'm an ex-RCI goer raised in the church and ex-communicated at 21.  I'm hoping for roughly 5-7 individual stories of how people coped after leaving.   Mention of things both positive or negative that occurred during the period you attended RCI and any difficulties you had when trying to lead a life devoid of the RCI doctrine and its members.

The feature article is purely personal interest, the only person who will read it will be my university lecturer.  It will not be published nor will the names or contact details of anyone who participates.

For academic reasons i require a name (it does not have to be your real name) and a contact number.  This is ONLY so that my lecturer can check the accuracy of my article with the sources - though this is largely a procedural requirement and is not likely to occur.

If you have previously posted information on this website regarding your time in RCI and life afterwards and you wish to consent to its use in my article please e-mail me. 

My contact details are available upon private message.  Thank-you for your time.

I wish i was where i used to be when i wanted to be what i am now.

Hi Dosk,

 

No doubt your motives for this request are upright but there are lots of stories on this forum already that you can “glean” from and choose that which is most appropriate to suit your needs. You then would be able to private message each to obtain their personal names etc if they are willing to oblige.

 

Perhaps consider telling us your story on here first and how you have coped, I’m sure we would all like to hear and be most interested and supportive.

 

Ralph.

Hi Ralph, i've already shared my story on this forum and i've also read just about everyone elses (somewhat of a voyuer).  The last thing i want to do however is pressure anyone into allowing me to publish their personal stories and distribute them to my lecturer (even if they have already posted them online for all the world to see).

My escapades since i left the church are detailed in the following threads for perusal (warning: may induce sleep);

There's more ...somewhere.  I'm in the middle of cooking the best coconut prawn curry so i'm off!

Hi Dosk,

My apologies for not remembering your previous posts. I must have read them at sometime since you posted them, as they do seem familiar, I think you may have had an avatar change which probably threw me a bit. Doesn’t take much nowadays, lol.

My story wouldn’t even be worth the ink as it is fairly ordinary. However it has always been doctrinal issues with Revival. Since walking away and searching out truth and with the help from Ian and others, I have found the peace that had been lacking all those years. The glory to our Savior God.

 

All the best with your feature article.

 

God bless

 

Ralph.

I was actually expecting a hostile response to this post.  When i first left the church the few people i did know outside of RCI liked to sensationalise my experiences to their colleagues and family.  It seemed to give them some kind of thrill.  I haven't been very active on the forums so i forgive you for forgetting me.  I've been busy finding my way out in the big wide world.
I wish i was where i used to be when i wanted to be what i am now.

Hi, Dosk.

Well, not everyone who engages here is necessarily hostile

Blessings,

Ian
