When I lived in Rome I discovered that Romans know how to make many things beautiful. Here workers have placed a nativity scene inside a bulldozer during the holiday. I can see it as kitchy and I can see it as incredibly profound. What do you see?
I'm a professor of Church History looking for answers to questions posed by living with faith. I accept answers wherever I can find them.
Since 1992 I have been a lay preacher, first in the Episcopal Church and now in the Roman Catholic Church. I am quickly coming to see blogging as a form of preaching. Since all good preaching invites comments and conversation, I welcome your comments to my posts.
