We Provide Several Ways to Search This Site for Information.
READ WHAT’S ALREADY HERE:
By far the best way to learn Charlie’s mission and message is to read what he has already written. Pretty much everyone who has come to this site for help and guidance during this Storm has done exactly that, at least in part. Begin with the first post and read each post from then until withdrawal on January 21st, 2017, or sample various posts as you please. Charlie published his first post on January 14, 2014, and it is located here:
The Old Order Passes
Since January 31st Beckita has assumed stewardship of Charlie’s extensive material and is adding her own stamp to the site with her own posting activity. Her first post was published on January 23rd: An Invitation.
Embark on a journey the likes of which you will never otherwise be blessed to take. If you will invest the time and effort, you will be rewarded. And if you can also read all the comments associated with each post you read, you will get even more knowledge and wisdom, as well as having the great good fortune to get to know Charlie, Beckita, and the other commenters on this site as people and as friends. On any post at any time you can join the conversation. Beckita and other commenters will respond with grace and welcoming words.
USE THE NAVIGATION BAR:
To obtain an overview of the site and its material, use the navigation bar. Charlie has selected several of his most important posts and placed them in the navigation bar which appears at the top of every page. If you’re uncertain which tab to try first, we suggest you “Start Here”.
SEARCH POSTS BY KEYWORD:
You can search all of Charlie’s and Beckita’s posts for specific words or search terms. In the right-hand column slightly below the headline picture and navigation bar is a Search button with a field where you can enter keywords or phrases to find posts on specific subjects. You can use single words (like Storm or Sherpa), or try phrases (like “Fullness of the Storm” in quotes). Think about what you want to find and enter word(s) associated with that idea, then see what comes up. Play around, and try multiple formulations. Please note that this search function only searches within posts, not within comments.
REFER TO THE ARCHIVES:
If you know the time period when a particular post was published, or are simply interested in checking out all the posts in a particular month, scroll down the right-side column until you see a pop-up menu titled “Archives” and labeled “Select Month.” Pop that menu up and click on the month you are interested in. Of course, while you are scrolling down the page, you will also see other types of information, like Recent Posts, various websites Charlie or Beckita recommends that you click through to, and other resources you might find either interesting or useful.
USE THE CATEGORY MENU OR THE TAG CLOUD:
Immediately under the “Archives” pop-up menu, you will see the Categories pop-up menu and then the Tag Cloud.
To use the Categories menu, click on the menu labeled “Select Category.” The menu will expand, and you will be able to select the category closest to the subject matter you are interested in.
Directly underneath the Categories menu, you will see a large list of words and phrases in a blue font. This is the Tag Cloud. Each word or phrase marks posts dealing with that word or phrase. The size of the font indicates how common that subject is throughout all the posts. For example, if you click on the phrase “Pope Benedict XVI,” you will be taken to a page listing all the posts that have been “tagged” with that phrase.
FIND RELATED POSTS:
If you are reading a post and are interested in finding other posts covering similar subjects as are in that post, use the facilities in the area below the text of the post. First you will find a series of buttons enabling you to share the post in any number of different ways with friends. Just below that section you will find an area titled “Related,” where Charlie or Beckita has called out a few posts that they believe are closely related to the subject matter of the post you just finished reading. Finally, you will find a section with words in gray lettering. The first words are the names of Categories, then you will see the words “and tagged” followed by a series of tags (this is like the Tag Cloud but restricted to the tags specific to that post). Clicking on any of these Categories or Tags will take you to a page listing all posts that are categorized or tagged with the same word or phrase.
