I started a novel on the way up...brought a couple of books to read for fun. No school reading, no email for work...and no blogging until I am back.

You would have to read the back story on all of this, but it began with Dan Savage's visit to the church Eugene's leads as part of a 30 author rate the church's in Seattle article.
Eugene is a good guy. It seems to me he was attempting to dialogue with Savage around a very controversial issue for many different people of faith. How do people of difference move forward if we cannot have a reasonably respectful conversation from both sides of an issue? If you go and read, I am interested to know how you think the conversation can be framed to promote dialogue and learning from one another rather than combative polarizing?

Deadline - Church History & Revolution -- August 1st
Overture II - India - August 11th
Church History – finished!
Revolution – finished!
Now I am working on my course work for the class I took in
Last night my nine year old son asked me if I could play “go fish”
me at my computer, “no Alex, I am doing school work” (he’s been hearing that for three weeks)
Alex, “I think your school is dumb”
me, “you will be in college someday and then you will understand why this takes time”
Alex, “I’m gonna do what you did, go when I’m 50”
