Hello, the "Children of God" played a major role in my life of faith: In 1972 I lived in Bromley, London, nearish to the main COG colony.  My then wife visited the group and her life changed.  She told me about Jesus and eventually I visited the factory where they were bqased.

I was not impressed by their guitar playing and siinging and found them not to my taste, hoever that night my conscience convicted me that I ought to go back and apologise for my arrogant attitude.  Anyhow I walked bak to the factory and as I went I was amazingly transformed by the power of G-d  - stopping swearing and smoking instantly.

From the Cog I learned about how to live by faith and though I never committed to them I employed their methods in my life - giving everything away to follow G-d - 35 years laer that faith still works in my life.

So it's thanks to the CoG for their influence in my life at that time- I'd never have learned real 'faith' living in a normal church.
