Is anyone else reading The DaVinci Code? I know it's the trendy book du jour, and I would ordinarily wait for the paperback or the library, but I actually
went out and bought it in hardcover today. I'm a huge fan of mysteries and thrillers and I hope that I won't be disappointed,
but this book apparently transcends either of those genres (this said without my having read a single word). The lure
for me, in this case, is the theological implications. Admittedly, this is a work of the purest fiction, or so the author
says. But it has generated a tremendous amount of interest amongst church groups. Our church – and we're certainly not the
first – is sponsoring a discussion group centering on the book. And apart from everything else, that piques my interest. I
plan to participate, by the way, if I can read fast enough.
So, let me know what you think, if you've read it. Or even if you haven't and have an opinion.

And just for the record, all words and pictures, except as noted, are mine and mine alone. I take full responsibility
for them (unless, of course, legal action is threatened).

expect, people will be offended. My apologies.
