    Any chance you’ll be recording this one like you did last time?

      Jonathan – I have been toying with bringing the idea up to the group, but I hesitate because I don’t want anyone to think I’m trying to pimp anyone out or anything….

    Have fun tonight & save me a T-shirt. I may wear it to church that day under a colorful blouse & show it later. What a great idea!!
    Have you contacted the gay media? Ya never know if they might be interested in the black shirt idea.

    Slightly random – Sarah & I ha’ve been booked to speak at Greenbelt Christian Arts Festival this year ( and the bookshop will stock our book plus another one relevant to our session. We’re going to ask for ‘Love is an Orientation’ to go alongside ‘Living It Out’. I’ll assume this is OK with you!
