    This is the first time I've personally heard this wonderful history and I'll be cherishing it for a while. I must add the center to my Christmas list, so I can sit around in December and remember that the central message of redemptive Christianity is the power and intention of God to bring good from evil.

    Nota bene: I am not, myself, a believer in the existence of a deity but I was born to and raised by Dominionist missionaries; when I de-converted I kept the good parts, and that is the only kind of giving I do for Christmas. I feel personal presents should be given when needed, and never burdened with an artificial interpretation of the symbolic gifts from those visiting magians.

    Enough fossil fuel remains on Earth to warm it 6 degrees C by 2100 AD if it is all used. A +6 C planet will only sustain half a billion humans. Human population will rise to 9 billion by 2050. Any questions?

      if my efforts provide some healing, davidincleveland.

      I know that Jerry Sloan will be delighted to hear that you want to incorporate his story as part of your Christmas celebration. That will be a great Christmas in July for him.

        By all means tell him. I have learned that it is good for septuagenarians to hear they are still a fresh inspiration to us youngsters. I'm only 71 so I qualify, relative to him.
