      Hello fellow Tim! I thought your post was very good; I don’t see very many posts of this caliber on financial demands, threats, and exploitation in the church.

      Karen, I have enjoyed reading your posts since I found your blog recently. I think your article listed here shows a lot of insight on a complex theological issue written in a simple down-to-earth style.

      I do notice just now that I listed the author as Misfits on Fire rather than using your name. This is an unintentional oversight, and I have corrected it.
