Amen. And just in case this was directed toward my line about ‘winning people to Christ’ in my post, I intended to use that language based on the attitude and language of the people the letter was addressing.
"Read, read, read. Read everything -- trash, classics, good and bad, and see how they do it. Just like a carpenter who works as an apprentice and studies the master. Read! You'll absorb it.
Then write. If it's good, you'll find out. If it's not, throw it out of the window."
— William Faulkner
