- Hello, my name is Anne Cutri. I have another blog here under my name that is dedicated to things from a Christian perspective. Comfort Cafe is a cyber spiritual support group. This is a safe zone for people to come who need encouragement. Please keep comments positive and uplifting. I imagine people gravitating here who need a shoulder or a safe place to be and to meet friends and talk. This is a group effort so if you want to discuss a subject please email me.

Sanctuary. A place to refresh and renew. I find the word sanctuary to imply a retreat to look inward, it follows that this type of journey is one taken alone. This is a bit different than the idea… Read full post »
