Haha. That could have been a secret. (Note: Those reading this thread should know that I read 1 and 2 Peter twice! A little bird told me it remained to be read. One would think I would have remembered! Wait til you all get to my age!)

Tricia, I'll check on Protestant penance. As a RC, we take it for granted!

Oh, thank you! You'll see that the chapters are long-ish, but very interesting.

Indeed! Thank you! (If it's not the Greely expedition, we can always reassign you. (I'll check.) I'm working on adding word counts and some kind of chapter 'title' to make things easier.)

Because we are not using section numbers, I can divide this chapter in half if you wish. We would just identify 'Chapter 19, Part 1' and 'Chapter 19, Part 2.' I can make that change at anytime.

A 7000 word chapter took me 56 minutes to read (I guess I read too slowly), so I will need it split into two sections. Do you want me to pick a logical breaking point in my recording later or would you rather split the parts now?
