Thank God NO Sacred Books Will Be Burned Today

I am so very grateful that as we remember 9/11 today, no Sacred Books have been burned.

I believe that it goes without saying that such an act would have been deplorable on so many levels.

While it is good that no Sacred Texts will be burned today, I am still deeply pained by the many hate filled blogs that desecrate the Moslem faith and those who follow it. For we all breathe the same air, drink the same water, relax under the same sun, view the same stars and share the same planet.

We call God by different names, but are called by Him as one name - His Children.

It is my hope that this day of reflection will be peaceful and sacred.

Just Having Some Fun Tonight

Just for the heck of it, having some popcorn and watching movies with Bill Morton and Kris Luck at Quest Network Services in Rogers Park. Nice to do something different for a weekend!

Plans for a new Pastoral Letter

I have finally outlined my next pastoral letter. The working title for this is "Santification of Life."

Its thesis shall be the pastoral concerns and/or fears of a tide of social and political backlash that will undermine the progress of our national family in the area of social justice and peace and civil and economic rights.

I will keep you all up to date with my process.

Please enjoy the Labor Day weekend.
