  1. Lisa–I have a couple of pictures of Conrad that I took while in CA a few weeks ago but I don’t have your home address. Please send it to my e-mail address below. Thanks! Marg

  2. Lisa, I loved your post on the UU Leadership distribution about taking over a Methodist Church. I figure you were just kidding, but you might be amazed at the response. As a former Methodist minister and now the minister of a UU congregation, I find that most Methodists are not that picky about doctrine. On the other hand, the first mention of Buddha might flip them out. If you would even consider such a strategy, I’d love to talk with you about it. My phone is 843-708-1033 I guess my email is below, but just in case, here it is patjobe13@gmail.com. Either way, good luck. I love your description of your congregation and the communities reaction to it. I saw you are also hooked in to the mountain top movement. Do you know my buddy, Janet Keating?
