I am praying that this message finds you and your family well, safe, and as inspired as I am by your work!
I am sitting on my porch, finishing “Faith After Doubt” (we are doing a book group beginning next week) – openly weeping as I receive your Afterword and your own beautiful experience of moving from belief to faith. I have been so excited by the whole of it,  as I have personally and professionally connected to it all – chapter by chapter and step by step. But the closing invitation cracked open an even deeper call to be a part of the transformation of which you write; and offered the inspiration to keep on the path. Thank you.
I am always deeply moved by your work, your writing, your insights, your investment in the world. But this… it… whew… indescribable.
I just needed to tell you – Yes. Bless. Thank you! God is surely so so happy for your presence in it. I sure am. Dude, you are the bomb!
Thanks for these encouraging words, and thanks to all who write, tweet, and otherwise contact me. As someone who also receives a bit of hate-mail and critique, it’s especially meaningful to receive sincere encouragement like this. Especially when this is the first time I think I’ve ever been called “the bomb” – in a good way!
