When does an evangelist become a zealot?   :o

Hurrah! A response - there is life out there  ;D

In response to your question I think it imperative that an evangelist BE a zealot. In my experience it's very difficult to evangelise unless you're passionately commited. Although, as you might have guessed, in this case I'm just having a bit of fun.

Blessings!

I've just had a quick play through.  I like it a lot, so this one's already been sent to the printer.  However, for the first month, I still think the choice should be something that's more accessible to a wider range of instruments, styles and abilities.
