UPDATE… 14/40

UPDATE… Tea with God
The newsletter yesterday asked you to participate in a spiritual-religious exercise imagining yourself having tea with God.  (A few of you e-mailed that you substituted coffee or beer. That’s awesome.)
Based on the number of comments I got, it seemed that lots of people really liked the exercise.
Here’s what fascinating to me: On Sunday, as I do on every Sunday, I reviewed the newsletter.  And, I thought, “Yikes, I just don’t like this one.” I considered pulling it altogether.  I considered putting a caveat at the top, “I’m not sure if this is a good article, read at your own risk.”
But I had too much else to do, so I just scheduled it to send assuming that if it weren’t good, heck, it’s The 77% Weekly and I don’t need to hit a home-run all the time.
This follow-up is to remind you (and me) of the spiritual-religious truth: you just don’t know if you don’t try. 
How true. How true.

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.
