I just received an invitation to a "small-group faith-sharing experience."
There’s a post and discussion at the Crunchy Con blog about the virtues, or otherwise, of trying to remain near your roots in the U.S.A. Most people who read this blog would probably consider that ground to have been pretty well plowed, but I found it interesting anyway, particularly the comments. One reader who grew up in a really wealthy area mentions the high school friend who was "annoyed that all he got upon successfully finishing rehab was a 924, not a 911." (I believe those are Porsche model numbers, in case they don’t mean anything to you.) I don’t know if "it takes all kinds" was really meant to cover cases like that.
Note that you have to click the "read all comments" button to read them from the beginning–initially only the most recent four or five are listed.
I am driving. My children, Joey and Maria, who are 7 and 4, are in the back seat. They are talking about Luke, a neighbor boy who has had no religious training to speak of, and whom they are instructing in the truths of the Faith.
Joey: I told Luke that the best thing about living in this world is that though you can’t see God or the angels, you can feel them.
Maria (matter of factly): I see angels.
Joey: Well, I did see those two angels the other day; they looked like flickering lights.
Maria: I see angels whenever I think about them.
