“Just wanted to say how much I enjoyed your story about Fellowship church. You took a subject that most people consider passive and you gave it depth and reach, and that’s hard to do. I couldn’t accomplish it in a lifetime. I like your obvious dedication to your topic, your sense of substance that belongs to the people you write about. In short, you’re a fine writer and I simply want to applaud you.”
