Dude! I’ll be there… it should be pointed out that A.D. correctly appears before dates (e.g. A.D. 2007: “The Year of Our Lord Two Thousand and Seven”), as opposed to B.C., which appears after dates (e.g. 2007 B.C. “Two Thousand and Seven Years Before Christ.”)

Dude, the ACCC Synod will make the church history books, because AC Ninjas will be in there in force! Represent!! Thanks for the pointer about the A.D. thing.

Should we set up a booth and recruit new members? We could have a way cool Ninja-making ceremony, complete with lots of incense, chanting, and sweeeeet martial arts moves. 🙂
