I appreciate how much your theological inputs have matured over the past year.

Yes, me, too. Very well said, Mithrandylan.

Lol, I almost had to there for a sec.  Thank you both.  The credit shouldn't be mine, of course.

Go thy ways, old Jack;
die when thou wilt, if manhood, good manhood, be
not forgot upon the face of the earth, then am I a
shotten herring. There live not three good men
unhanged in England; and one of them is fat and
grows old: God help the while! a bad world, I say.
I would I were a weaver; I could sing psalms or any
thing. A plague of all cowards, I say still.
