There is a modest mosque next door to the church that has become an overwhelmingly popular mid-day prayer destination. The mosque was filled and the overflow of hundreds of men, young and old lined the sidewalk on 29th…

When I was 16 years old my family moved from urban Minneapolis to rural Alabama. I went from a large inner city liberal arts magnet school to a rural county high school where I graduated in a class of 41 students. Moving to Alabama was a real culture shock for me –and I am continually…

During our stop in New Orleans Kiwi Dave and I had an opportunity to see the lingering devastation of hurricane Katrina.

Last week we had a few days off from the tour and Tony and I went to see Dark Knight, the new Batman franchise film. Indeed this film was more sinister and melancholy than so many super hero movies–and yet more realistic in terms of the ambiguities involved in trying to be a helpful contribution…

The week between legs was spent in New Orleans with my sons Taylor and Ruben. We toured the town, took a road trip to Mississippi and rented wave runners in Biloxi. We ate the fine and fatty foods of New Orleans and took in the scene on Bourbon Street. We met up with our friends…
