Here’s just some stuff that I am mulling over and thinking about in no particular order:
-Time moves way to fast! Can’t believe January is almost over! And then you get struck with a stomach flu that knocks you out for a week! I don’t think I will ever get caught up this semester and it has just started!
-Religious Freedom and Religion in the Public Square: HHS Mandate, folks using the phrase Freedom of Worship instead of Freedom of Religion (no, they are not the same thing!), political correctness and self-censorship.
-Cancer, death, dying, the meaning of life… found out someone else I knew just passed away from cancer.
-Student Involvement, scheduling, programs, ideas: more folks are connecting all the time with the Newman Center, yet there doesn’t seem to be a way to get everyone together. Are we so used to living in a virtual world that people don’t feel the need to get together in real life? To pray together? To eat together? To grab a cup of coffee and talk about our faith?
-Retreats, prayer, RCIA, evangelization: went to a retreat day for the RCIA teams recently. Awesome presentation on prayer, and the use of art in prayer. Very cool!
-Oh, and did I mention time is flying … Lent is just around the corner. Stations of the Cross anyone?
What is on your mind this Monday?
