My colleague (and friend) Jim Hazelwood, the Lutheran bishop of New England, posted a letter about the first steps in the COVID-19 recovery process. He’s been a key conversation partner with the Episcopal bishops in New England and what he shares here both represents a large part of my thinking and includes some helpful suggestions I hadn’t thought of. He writes particularly of the immediate stages of returning to the buildings as the state governments […]
Just when you despair that the Internet is never going to fulfill the promise we believed it had, along comes something like this: Powered by a Facebook page and a vision…
Behind home dugout today. Was behind visitors last Monday and then home plate on Wednesday. Already down three runs in the bottom of the first. Gonna be hard to sweep this series.

My good friend Jan Nunley, one of the finest religious journalists I’ve ever known, has set up new digs for herself over at Jawbones. Not sure what she’s going to do with the site since it’s just getting started: “…oh my goodness yes. See, I’ve got Google Reader set up to capture feeds from most of the blogs over there on the left side of your screen (if yours isn’t there yet, it’s probably because […]
