Now you put a whole new twist in this thread. :) I wasn't even thinking about gifts of God that we are born with. When I think of the Gifts of the Spirit I think of the nine spoken about in I Corinthians. It's all good.
About thefellowshipofthecross.org site: I've listened to almost the whole first page of the audio. This means I completed "Calling Forth the Remnant" and am on "To live I must Die." I'm not taking notes either. I listen as I go about my work. I plan to listen to them several times hoping it will sink in. I think the guy is really good. He seems completely sold out to Christ.
