Pity, that.

Great looking site overall. Really fabulous to see something so 
professional for a church or any Christian organization. Way to go!

OK, no that the stroking is over, a few things off the bat: (I do have 
access to a Mac, so all these comments relate to that platform)

1. I could not find the address of the church anywhere on the site. 
What if I want to come Sunday?

2. I think it is fine to have a "site by:" credit on every page.

3. really odd background image thing happening in the top header. In 
Safari I see a color image of wheat (corn?) that stays fixed if I 
resize the browser window width and the site logo slides over it - very 
good. However, if I change the browser window height it starts to shift 
and tile and slip around. Very odd. In Camino, Firebird and IE 5.2 it 
does not show up at all.

4. I expect the little arrows, page icons to be links - but no...

5. on this page: 
http://www.thywordistruth.net/articles/article.php?aid=17&cid=1 the 
green sidebar is verrrry tall and if I scroll to see it the grey image 
of wheat in the corner gets covered up by the background of one div or 

6. I like that image of the wheat in the lower right corner. balances 
the layout nicely.

7. Let me revise #1, it does say on the opening page, but I expect that 
sort of stuff at the bottom as a line of text. I know that is boring 
and doesn't look pretty, but it works. Just a line or two that says:
" Grace Community Church - N Granada Blvd At W Sanrem Ave, Lake Villa 
IL tel: (***) ** ****"
That sort of thing.

8. Print Style sheets - yeah!
