I called your behavior "counterproductive," not "ignorant." I would like to 
see this work you mention, and with your permission, share it with some 
others. While the people (including priests) in the New Church Movement may 
be in darkness (and practicing other things that set you on edge), I don't 
think you shine a light on your work (your contribution) by giving the 
appearance of disrespecting others. Let's see if we can get this dialogue on 
a better footing. Alan

You are correct that my manner is counterproductive to the work. The 
'Doctrine of Divine Truth' is a Word document of 40 pages, 12pt, 1 1/2 line. 
It stricktly quotes source material with only 7 lines or so of Ed. comment. 
If you can look past my ignorant behavior it would be a blessing to be able 
to share it with you. Let me know, and I'll send it to you. Your errant 
brother, Greg. Please forgive me.
