Ecclesiastical and political pragmatism, with a beat
Tuesday, January 4, 2011
It's still Christmas in the chapel of the Holy Spirit Retreat Center in Encino, where five clergy buddies and I spent two days solving all the problems of the world and the Church. We'll be announcing our findings soon from a pulpit near you; call ahead for service times and the preaching rota if you wish to avoid hearing more. The center's run by the most gracious and hospitable Sisters of Social Service (R.C.).
