“An ongoing conversation about things that matter carried on with passion and discipline.” That’s the way Parker Palmer defines truth. His definition captures exactly what I hoped would happen in my classes when I was teaching at Berea College in Kentucky, and in a Latin American Studies Program in Costa Rica. That process of truth-seeking is what I hope will continue on this blog site as it attempts to engage former students, my colleagues, friends, and casual drop-ins in important open-ended dialogs.
My plan is to post at least three times a week. Mondays will be devoted to brief thoughts about current events. Fridays will offer reflections on the upcoming Sunday’s liturgical readings — a sort of homily I hope would be preached then. Wednesdays will present specifically theological reflections — a sort of “class lecture” on liberation theology and related matters. In between, there may be other postings in the form of book and film reviews for example. I will appreciate feedback, positive or critical, on any of this. Thank you for dropping in.
