  1. I love the site, except that you guys argue over basketball teams without even mentioning the MIGHTY UNC Tar Heels :-). One other gripe-Jed, I remember when you were about 4. I am too old.
    Seriously, I am excited about what you fellows are doing. Guys like you make me pretty excited about our future as a convention.

  2. Dr. Reid, I am so sorry, but I have gotten older as well! I did my best to stay around 5 years of age. I just couldn’t make it work…

    Speaking of memories, I was just in Chicago at my parents house and came across a picture of you, my Dad, Ledbetter, and a few others. I believe it was a group called the ETO? If I can get that picture up, I will.

  3. This ought to be good. I just registered. New Orleans is about a 4 to 5 hour drive from here. Maybe I can get my Crossan books sngeid. I got my Wright books sign when he was here a week ago. Might you be here?

  4. What a special treat to hear from you, Kathryn! 37 years! Wow!! It only goes to show the preowful and faithful work of God’s Spirit in completing the work he began in us (Phil. 1:6) to conform us to the image of Christ (Rom. 8:29). Keep seeking the truth, dear friend, as it will draw us closer together in his body.
