Tug,
   Thought I'd send a note to your guest book to say how much I appreciate your passion for scripture and your passion to share scripture with others.  Your insight that many have no idea how to read scripture has born much fruit.  I love Dan's recent note about how he is applying your suggestions and loving scripture more than ever.  I have incorporated tugsforjesus.com into my daily routine.  It is very helpful to start my day with God's word, reflections from Creighton and Notre Dame.   Well Done!!!
   David

Hi Tug: I took your advice and read this at my lunch. In the 'heat' of the day this is the true refreshment that I need (particularly today which has been tough).  Thank-you and God bless!  David L.

Hi John! Billy and I usually swap bulletins after we've dined on Sunday evenings and while I was perusing St. A's bulletin (including the ads) I came across your website. At first I thought it was a joke or just a John Tugman filler, but I find it quite interesting. I shall have to suggest our Deacon Bill to try something like this in between his DRE duties (just kidding of course). CONGRATS! ON YOUR WEBSITE. dwh P.S. Bill says he can't get my joke forwards with all the firewalls you have built in.
