Judging from the number of comments I would say your audience isn't too moved by this subject. The problem I have with evangelicals is stated by definition:

Anyone or anything that offers a final solution draws my captious eye. The marketing quagmire we live in today, the snake who eats his own tail, is a product of the science of managing large groups.

Krista, I admire your work very much. In fact, I admire your work so much that I have sent you money(albeit a small amount) and will in the future.

Thou shalt know by experience how salt the savor is of other's bread, and how sad a path it is to climb and descend another's stairs. ~Paradiso (XVII,58) Dante Alighieri
Keep up the good work,
