February 2009


Returning to Roshi Doshi’s blog, open windows & unlocked doors, he had some interesting reflection on prayer.  If you are interested, you can find it here.

Again, a selection from my friend Jim Richardson’s blog, Fiat Lux, where he quotes a poem from R M Rilke (who I like).  If you are interested, find it here.

My younger daughter called last night from Wichita. Yesterday, her husband, an aeronautical engineer, was laid off. They laid off all the contract workers, and thousands of the employees. This follows an earlier round of layoffs. The employees got two months pay. The contract workers got nothing. All of them were told to take their stuff as they left (and don’t come back). Glenn was a contract worker. Audrey is not employed. I have no idea what they are going to do.

I found the link to Roshi Doshi’s article about how he’s connecting to his church (he’s never had one before) on the Sarcastic Lutheran blog.  He calls it “The Church of Strong Coffee.”

My old classmate from seminary, Brother Adam McCoy, had a rather different (and thought provoking) reflection on the inauguration. It gave me plenty of food for thought. If you are interested, you can read it here:  “Different Values.”
