"Mike, I hope somebody does pick up the ball and run but I can't for the same reasons you are quitting. I have moved on, mostly. That is good. I went through stages. First I felt I needed help because I was raw and angry at the church.…"
"Happy guy mentioned perspective and that is important. Also, I have found other connections important. You leave the church and often the church is your social network, your community, and your frame for your world view. You are…"

Hey, Hiker Daddy Carl - Sorry it took so long to reply to your friend request . . . the usual lame excuses . . . busy . . . traveling . . . anyway, greetings to you in no-longer-governed-by-Sarah-Palin AK!
