Our Cause

We leave at 4:30am in order to get into town and registered before the oven that is the outdoors right now reaches 350 degrees. Please keep everyone riding in your prayers tomorrow and the ones for whom we ride in your prayers always.

Thank you so much for doing this. MS is such a very cruel disease.

I'm so sorry presbyweb's listing affected your MS post. I'm sympathetic -- presbyweb has my blog listed under my real name rather than as Quotidian Grace. I've been totally outed! I think that happened because they ran an op ed I wrote for QG about the atheist church member in Austin and I gave them permission to use my name when they published that.

QG - It's my own greedy fault. I asked to be put on there in the hopes of upping the traffic by my blog and not two days later did the site get introduced to the Session.

ouch! It's scary when the real world and our private lives bump into each other isn't it? and I no longer believe it's is possible to be 100% anonymous. I made the mistake of using my real (and full) name on my blog -and it's landed me in hot water too perhaps even cost me my ministry (but I hope not) Apparently I should have asked for permission! Go figure.

As a poor PhD student, it ain't much--but I've added my donation now.

Hope there's no negative repercussions from your blog!

Thanks jwd! Everythink helps and I really appreciate your donation.

Well, I clearly missed something, but I'm sorry you have a problem.

There is no major problem... not two days after having my blog put on 'presbyweb' (a gathering place of all pcusa information) an elder came into our meeting and informed everyone of the website as an excellent place to get information (which is true). I am now taking away things in this blog that blatantly point to who I am.

Alas, this means there is no longer a picture of the red, white and blue flower arrangement (sniff...)

One of my dear friends from seminary has MS. Thanks for your support. God bless you!

i have a cousin christopher who suffered from and eventually died from ms a number of years ago. he was able to live long after doctors predicted due to advances in treatment (and his own will to live for sure). i'll always remember my last conversation with him which came late in his 20s my early 20s. so glad to have that memory. keep riding

Keep at it. We're proud of you (and legs ache in sympathy)
(oh...the verification thingy is vgbmx...which is fun as BMX were very fashionable variety of bike in the UK for some years!)
