  1. Thanks for sharing. Laurie, did you ever meet Dr. Todd Farley? He was assistant minister with 2nd Congregational Church, I believe, but not sure. He is our pastor now. He is also a mime who studied mime with Marcel Marceau in Paris. I hope that Bay View invites him to lecture sometime.

  2. Welcome to First United in Birmingham, Laurie. I have enjoyed your “Cruising” sermons. I do not belong to the church but have been actively involved with Art & Soul for over a year. I hope you join us downtown one day.

    • Thank you, Barbara. I look forward to hearing more about Art and Soul. Thank you for your involvement in this important ministry.

  3. Kurt Kimble introduced me to your writings. Thank you for that openness and effort. I’d like to read more of them in the future.

  4. Regarding the article about pies, bless all those who have compassion for others and thanks, Laurie, for putting Christ (as in Jesus Christ) back in the term CHRISTian. Last time I looked in the Bible, it said that Jesus did not come to condemn the world but save it. Why do people keep forgetting that?
