Hey Boys (defined as, Arol Wolford, Barry Morrow and Jim Eckstein*).
So… I stumbled upon a gallant group of inspired men that very much remind of you (other) three.
This group meets here in Alpharetta. I thought this was a simple small group for Bible study. However, these fellows are extremely bright, articulate, and full-on Catholics. Indeed, their focus is Regnum Christi. A far cry from the typical Southern Baptist dicks-on-the-table and tissue-box fair that defines many things Atlanta.
I joined them this morning and was instantly galvanized, inspired (kind of intimidated) and very much enthused. I immediately valued and loved the traditions and rituals I witnessed. While complicated, it occurred to me (maybe reminded) that religion is also fun and interesting. Key words: History, Perception, and Discernment.
I’m ever so confident they are taken aback somewhat by my sophomoric evangelistic “Christian-ness”; and, decidedly unschooled, at that. However, they appear determined to live-up collectively to the designs of Regnum Christi, and are pondering the appropriate training wheels for me. They have an App!
So… This is probably a big mistake. And, I may set the Catholic faith, and certainly their tolerance and patience back a century or two. But, I am going to pursue this effort with vigor – and you three are gonna help me!
I am lifting Arol up(!) today, with his dear and departed Ralph Paradise.
I know I see Arol next Friday. And, I hope Jim and Barry thereabouts.
With that, hugs abound.
NOTE: I’m having lunch with Durwood Snead on the 30th. I plan on talking about you all with enough vigor to make your ears burn.
