Many years ago I sat around a table drinking rakia with a handful of Bosnian Serbs and one was expounding on how he felt sorry for the fate of Nicolai Ceausescu, the dictator of Romania whose 24 year hold on power was cut short by firing squad in 1989.

I began a new class yesterday (yes, another one!), it's called, Theology and Contemporary Spiritualities, and is essentially an exploration of new developments in faith and belief in the 21st century. It's a fairly small class, under twenty, which is unusual for me, but I think it will prove helpful with this class. We are going to do some field work as well as the usual class discussion stuff--I think you have to expose yourself to what is going on, and experience it personally, in order to

Seen this around for a long time, and I have been working on it off and on for a long time (even though I remember saying once that I'd never do it), and I powered through the rest of it just now and it's finally done, and I'm going to be busy all weekend, so here you go, it's all you'll get until Monday.
