Just a note that I have been absent for a little over a week now, due to a combination of travel and illness. Today I am in the midst of the second day of the Global Faith Forum, a fascinating event in which conservative Christians, Muslims and Jews are discussing how they can retain the integrity of their beliefs and yet (1) build relationships of mutual respect and (2) work together to serve the cities and the nations in which we leave.
The best way to follow this blog — absolutely the best — is to subscribe to the RSS feed or sign up for the email updates. I do apologize that sometimes my job is so overwhelming that I cannot post an email update. But if you subscribe, then you will receive updates when I do post, and not waste your time checking on days that I do not post. Next week I am going to do the best I can to resume frequent posts — although I may make a slight change to the format (more on that soon).
