The Encourage ListServ is an email discussion forum for friends and family of loved ones with same-sex attractions.
If you yourself struggle with same sex attractions, then the ListServ for you is the Courage Online ListServ found at http://groups.yahoo.com/group/CourageOnline.
In order to read the messages at the site, instead of receiving them in your in-box, you will need to go yahoo.com and create a yahoo ID for yourself by filling out the form. Please note, study the options carefully. With Yahoo groups you will have the option to leave the messages on their server or have them come to your email account. It is your choice. Although you can change the option at a later date, you might want to decide before setting your account up.
When you are ready to subscribe, go to:
http://groups.yahoo.com/group/encouragesupport and sign up!
You will automatically be sent posting guidelines and goals, and an e-mail address to which you must send your written agreement with the guidelines and goals, before you are added to the list.
Once added, e-mail messages will come to your e-mail or be available for access on the encourage support yahoo groups page. These messages will be from every member of the list serve that sends an email in. To send your email to everyone on the EnCourage ListServ do the following:
1. Send your emails to firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Always include information about your email in the subject line. This helps all members sort their email messages.
3. Include your first name in the Email and if you wish further identification you might want to include the State or City you are from.
Also, you may want to bookmark (add as a favorite to your browser) the encourage support listserv. It's location is: http://groups.yahoo.com/group/encouragesupport.
The Spiritual Chaplain of this ListServ is Fr. Rich Perozich. The Moderator is Bob C.
