I’ll make a bet: If I asked you for a $32.79 donation to a Crowdsourcing project to change religion into a “church of hopeful uncertainty” you’d donate

Dear Patheos Friends,I’m Launching a PROJECT “Say NO to Fundamentalism and YES to Mystery, Wonder and Love!”Will You Help?I’ll make a bet: If I asked you for a $32.79 donation to a "Crowdsourcing" project of mine that would change what religion is in America by turning our “church of hopeful uncertainty” into a virtual “mega church” of tolerance, forbearance and love you’d donate.But I’m not asking for that.
