The First Electronic Church of America
Welcome to the FECHA Confessional
Confession, they say, is good for the soul. At the very
least, confession is do-it-yourself psychotherapy. And so, in our electronic
church, we present on-line confessions!

The First Electronic Church of America invites you
to find your catharsis in electrospace. We can't give you absolution, of
course. Nor will we presume to give you priestly advice. But we will do
- We remind you that God is more willing to forgive
you your sins than you are able to forgive yourselves. Just ask Him (or
Her, if you think of God-as-Mother) and S/He will do it in a New York minute.
You don't need this piece of electrospace to do that.
- But we do offer this space for those who feel a need
for a more overt (yes, even public) form of confession. Tell FECHA your
sin (or sins). Please don't give us your real name. You can make up a name,
or, as they say, give yourself "a handle." But that isn't necessary.

- We have another wrinkle. Members of FECHA can read
others' confessions AND MAY ALSO weigh in with their own reflections --
expressions of sympathy, advice on how we can kick our sinful ways, or
change our sinful habits. In a way, this electronic forum resembles the
kind of circle some of us may have encountered in group therapy, or in
encounter groups. There, frequently enough, it wasn't the therapist (or
leader) who made the best and most healing interventions, but one or another
member of the group itself.
