I am a scripting language connoisseur, regular expression aficionado, network geek, general lover of Linux and a frequent contributor to open source software. I transitioned to programming from other work because I was too busy automating my own work environment to actually do the other work. I have a hobby interest in cartography. For more see my personal site. Most importantly, my life is defined by the grace of God given to men through Jesus Christ. It is my ambition that everything I do would reflect His glory and point people towards Him.

comment What traditions fully embrace the concept of a “local parish church”?
@DavidStratton: It's list-y but a fairly finite result set. If I were to ask on Unix & Linux for what distros have package X it would be inappropriate but if I were to ask which major distros use a continuous rolling release tree instead of incremental releases, that would narrow it down to a handful and be something that an expert in the field could not just list, but would note any subtle differences in the top players along the way.

comment How do Jehovah's Witnesses define “active” membership?
Welcome to Christianity.SE and thank you for taking the time to shed some light on this issue. I have to say that isn't the answer I was expecting, but I asked because I didn't actually know. If you are able, I'd be very interested to see an edit to this answer that includes a definition of what "preaching" means (does it have to be formal at an assembly or does general witnessing to friends count?) as well as any references where where these time periods are defined in church polity. Again, thanks for contributing, I've learned something already.

Welcome to Christianity.SE! Your answer is a little hard to follow for somebody who doesn't already know what you are talking about. I've edited the formatting to make it a little more readable, but perhaps you could add some explanation about what the pieces are you are explaining?
