Fine, thank you, understood.  A previous correspondent
had referred to the (un)desirability of using "Jesus'
words" as an example, and I just wondered whether it
was this part that was the cause of your concern or
whether you were (as you are, in fact) focussing on
more substantive issues.  As it turns out, I share
some of your concerns, but knowing the motivation of
those involved, I am less inclined to dismiss the
proposal out of hand and more inclined to debate its
merits (or otherwise) with its proposers.
