40.40 THANK YOU!


This should have gone out earlier this morning.  But, well, I forgot to schedule it.
With love,


The 77% Weekly
The 40/52-weeks-a-year, quick-reading, thought-lingering, spiritual-religious newsletter.

From the desk of Rabbi Brian

Thank you.

If one of the hallmarks of a spiritual-religious life is a sense of gratitude, I feel like a spiritual-religious super-star… why? Because the deep gratitude I have to all of you who have supported this outside-the-box approach to religion.

Thank you.  Thank you.  Thank you.

Thank you for your e-mails of support.

Thank you for telling your friends about ROTB.

And, thank you for your financial contributions.

The 77% Weekly

The 77% Weekly: The Religion-Outside-The-Box Newsletter
helps people find and be with (the) God (of their understanding) 40 out of 52 weeks a year.

Why 77%?
Two reasons:
1) 40/52 = 0.76923. The newsletter is sent every Monday except the last of each month.
2) In school 77% was a passing grade and ROTB is delighted to remind you that life isn’t graded.

Religion-Outside-The-Box is a donation-supported,
non-denominational, internet-based, 501c3-tax exempt religious congregation.
