1 Corinthians 13

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am a noisy gong or a clanging cymbal.

And if I have prophetic powers, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have all faith, so as to remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing.

If I give away all I have, and if I deliver up my body to be burned, but have not love, I gain nothing.

Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude.

Hi Andrew,

From what I gather, you are a key person in Chicago's Critical Mass.  I want to bring a fairly new cycling education program to Chicago.  It's called CyclingSavvy.  Have you heard of it?  Please check it out at www.cyclingsavvy.org and let me know if you think it's something that Chicago's Critical Massers would find helpful.

Hey there Mister,

Yeah, it was! That's so funny. I never would have remembered that was you on that rainy night. Joe and I still have the little tube bracelets that Travis gave to us. What a small world...
