IT IS DONE! Thank you all for your help! I was able to keep my goal of having the paper done by 1/31!
I had to completely re-write part one as many emails were sent saying "Hey, all this is nice, but it says what you're against, not what you're for." So i re-wrote that. I had some great "tweeks" on parts 2 and 3. i could repost it in it's new form, but feel a little burnt out on it. maybe you do too.
now i can say that i'm done and awaiting my interview by my home church. It looks to be schedule for 2/28/10. I'll keep y'all posted.
thanks for your help!
