[IPr] Calling all Spirit Seekers!

To David, Ginny, Sammi and anyone else,
    I, like David, was wondering if this group had completely dissolved
lately? I'm always thrilled to see a digest from "spirit", even if it has
been 3 or 4 or 5 days! At least it tells me there are some left! So, I was
wondering if we can all let our presence be known? Just write a brief note
about the reason you like to share these intimate portraits of our faith
with others. Ok? That way we'll all know who's out there! Even if it's just,
"I like to read this" it will give us a more accurate picture of how many of
us are still subscribing.
    Thanks for hangin' in there, I intend to stay on-line till I'm the only
one left, if need be! Thanks for sharing your story Sammi!
    "Summer's lease hath all too short a date".
                                     William Shakespeare
Looking forward to sharing and learning from all of you,
