Reflection on life as a person of faith.

Just when you thought it was safe to wear your, “Kiss me I’m Irish Shirt”…although I’m not sure how “O’Green” is any less exclusive. The article does not mention the obvious faith connection, that both St Patrick’s and St Valentine’s days are both saint’s festivals (long before green beer, milkshakes and heart-shaped boxes of cheap chocolates became the cultural icon).

I’m glad the school system is teaching educators the critical thinking skills necessary to safely guide their students through the threatening waters of post-modernism.

In two weeks I’m look forward to celebrating, “Eggs laid by bunnies” day.
