Hi, Melissa!

I am so behind on my FNs, it isn't even funny. Laughing

Just wanted to say it was great seeing you over New Year's! Hope you had a fantastic time in Akron and didn't get into TOO much trouble with Katy. Wink

Thanks for the note. I am curious: What have you heard regarding Rob Bell? Have you read any of his books? As I stated in the forum, I really think people (and especially Christians if they venture to build an opinion on any person or topic) need to read what he has to say for themselves. There is no better way to know what someone is about, save for chatting face-to-face with that person. How was your Christmas? And what are you doing for New Years?
