Devotional Study Group
Thursday, October 13, 2005, 2:09 PM

With the launch of our Treaders page we’ve begun to list discussion groups of Touchstone readers around the country.  Now, someone would like

to start a Daily Devotional Guide readers group.  Perhaps we could call

this a "Breaders" group (Bible readers).  Here are the details from the leader:

Men’s study

group to share insights gleaned from the Daily Devotional Guide will be

forming.  Time of meeting will be during the lunch hour in downtown Chicago.

Survey–Last Chance
Thursday, September 8, 2005, 1:19 PM

Tomorrow will be your last chance to participate in the voluntary survey about Christian attitudes towards counseling that I have mentioned over the past several days.  The researcher informs me that they especially need Protestants to participate.  Please click here to take the survey.  It takes about 15 minutes.  My first post about this is here.

Survey–Your Participation Requested
Tuesday, September 6, 2005, 9:44 AM

The other day, I mentioned that readers of Mere Comments have an opportunity to participate in a voluntary survey to assist Christian researchers in their study of attitudes towards counseling.  This opportunity will only be available until Friday.  My earlier post is here.
Or, click directly to the survey, here.
