Total Depravity, my ass.

In other news, I went to a church business evening tonight and actually came away feeling vaguely positive. Words like “relational” were mentioned and, although The Big “E” Word wasn’t mentioned explicitly, there was a definite ‘feel’ of things heading in that sort of direction. So, yeah, I feel quite positive about it. Which is nice.
