I will be doing a "border crossing" (just a joke...stay calm, all) to visit some folks in Minnesota and talk about Adult Christian ed. So, comments will be held until I'm back...Tuesday night or Wed.
The picture at the top of the page (Nov. 5-6, 2007) is the Sun Dance, a pre-Christian ceremony by which men offered their own suffering for the good of their people. It is useful for discussing Christ and the cross across cultures. It reminded me of the Beatitudes as well.
