I apologize for the lack of new posts here recently. I’m working on a memoir about my interactions, half a century ago, with the Catholic Church and the U.S. Selective Service System. I hope to complete that soon. In the meantime, here are links to three previously-published posts related to Easter.

A transcription of brief vocal ministry about my experience of Easter during worship. (2010; 210 words)
