    Dr. Hertig,

    Happy Holidays to you and Paul. You probably do not remember me but Paul and Bob Lithicum were my advisors at United Theological Seminary during your last year there. I was reading SCUPE’s newsletter and saw where you were going to be speaking at their 2008 Congress on Urban Ministry. Please give my regards to Paul. It has been a long time since I have seen either of you and I still remember the manner by which both of you impacted my life as a theologian and minister. Take care and be blessed.

    Dear Young Lee,

    You may no longer recall who I am, but you were one of my Core Group Advisors at United Theological Seminary. Please permit me to take this opportunity to express my heartfelt gratitude, and outward appreciation for your guidance, and mentorship. You helped to guide this individual through the United Methodist Process, and helped me to seek understanding that my calling was not to the Ordained Ministry of the United Methodist Church. Because of your understanding I have found renewed faith within the Presbyterian Church. I am proud to call you a mentor, and hopeuflly a friend as it does my heart well to see your still persuing justice on behalf of Asian Americans. You helped a Caucasian conservative male to open his eyes, and to seek justice.

    Thank You,
    Kevin Shope
    Coronado, Ca
