Contact/Light Bearer Biographies
the information about Contacts (Light Bridges) and Light Bearers on the website has been
very minimal, mostly just an address and contact information.
However, being in the same state or country as someone else does
not necessarily mean you will connect well or be able to help them very
much. Now that Contacts do
not have to be living in their contact areas, you may not even have
location in common anymore (for more information, see the article about
the new Contacts policy in this Newsbrief).
we have decided to give Contacts, which includes both Light Bridges and
Light Bearers, the option of writing a few sentences about themselves to
put in their listings.
We encourage you to start a website and present it
to the Mission to be approved (receive the Seal Of
Approval). Put in it whatever is appropriate and is about the
Mission. Add your profile to your website and we
will connect your name in the contacts list in the Mission
website to that profile page.
The purpose of
these biographies or profiles would be to make people feel more comfortable or
enthusiastic in contacting you.
For example, if you write that you enjoy volunteer or charity
work, someone who
also enjoys the same thing might be more likely to contact you.
Even if that person is not from your contact area, there will be
a shared interest, and you may be able to connect with him and help him
more because of it.
these biographies could include age, hobbies, interests, how you found
the Mission, or whatever you
would like to share. If you
are not living in the area you are a Contact for, you could explain your
connection to that place (perhaps you lived there at one point, have
friends there, have a great interest in the culture, etc.).
Try to keep your profile as short as possible, and focus on
what you think you could connect with others the most about.
if you do not wish to write one, there is no obligation to do
so. If you do decide to
write one, please send the URL of the page it is in to
