  1. Stir fried monkey and Bon Jovi hair, huh? Pretty wild! Really, thanks as always for sharing some of your past with us.

    I love the idea of God inviting everyone to his table. As in your readings when the servant was sent out to ask those that usually would never be asked - the outcast and the infirmed - wow, what a love he has for us! All one has to do is accept the invitation and show up, because certainly God does.

    I hope y'all have an excellent turnout for Alpha. Thanks. TA
