Dear Folks -
Since this talk is the last one I'll do in Ordinary Life until
August 5, I chose to spend the time talking about some of the
assumptions I've been working from in the series "Having a Religious
and Spiritual Fit." As usual I think the spoken version is better
(more complete) than the text here. One of the things I do in talking
about the matter of authority is to talk about how in the Protestant
version of Christianity it came to be that there was, and is, a
division between "liberals" and "conservatives." My suggestion is
that we let neither label define or confine us. The presentation ends
with my version of the stonecutter story.
I am on my way for a holiday in England and Turkey. A great line-
up of guest speakers is in store for the rest of July.
