The Last Few Weeks

The last few weeks of this term (and my first year of seminary) are under way… As a fantastic end-of-term gift, three out of five profs have made 80% of our mark to be determined by papers and presentations due within these final weeks. It is less fun than it sounds.

Earlier this term I did some writing for the blog on the Diocese of BC website. It was published this week: What I learned from singing…

Enjoy.

Wholehearted

I stumbled across this talk through a link from a link from a blogger I’ve followed for a number of years. If I could pick up and be accepted to do further study at any graduate school anywhere, this might just be who I would want to work with.

Humanitarian Crises: Who Cares?

This article appeared in my Reader Feed. In it, the author talks about how to save the world. Literally.

Like why is it so difficult to motivate people to care about the crises going on around us? We can inspire fear and guilt all we want, but it doesn’t seem to change a thing. The author’s theory is based on a quote from Mother Theresa: “If I look at the mass, I will never act. If I look at the one, I will.”

Interesting thoughts. Read the article. Then act.
