By the way.  According to Harold Camping of "Family Radio," tomorrow -- May 21 -- is Judgment Day -- the end of the world.  Just call me skeptical.  But if the world doesn't end tomorrow, and I'll enjoy seeing everyone again at St. Paul's on Sunday. 

And...  I'll start a new Sunday School series at 10:00 -- "Authentic Happiness" -- based on the new field of Positive Psychology and the book by the same name by Martin E. P. Seligman of the University of Pennsylvania.

Did anyone see the picture of the controversial billboard that was recently put up by another spiritual group near Family Radio’s headquarters? It directly challenges them about May 21. Here is a picture of it:
