I would just like to extend a thank you to pastor john for his new book.

When I was 18 I stepped on the campus of Union University in Tennessee and was immediately branded a lost soul. I was constantly harassed by my peers to get "saved." Of course this to them meant to 1. shave, 2. become a republican, 3. stop smoking and 4. stop listening to the multiple heavy metal and death metal music that i listened to on a regular basis.

After six months I finally replied to one of them that I did need to be saved but not for their reasons. I let them know that I do not love enough or give enough and I was certainly not humble enough. I couldn't believe that all these pastor kids and those who grew up in the church judged me on the outside versus the inner values they claimed to preach about.

Finding the good in creation is the spiritual path that we are all on and I am glad to see someone doing just that.

Anyway I just want to say that the message your preaching is a good one and I am surprised it has taken so long for someone to come along and preach it.
