...I have returned to the blogosphere. I was absent for various reasons, mostly having to do with parish duties and educational obligations (i.e., learning and teaching).
With my return, I've decided (for the time being and, again, for various reasons) to suspend the ability for readers to comment on this blog. I still appreciate whatever comments may be made--most of which prove helpful or stimulating to my thinking. So feel free to comment to me personally by sending me a direct email. Feel free to use this address: email@example.com.
