Right now I'm in Canmore, Alberta, enjoying the mountain scenery and some excellent presentations by Michael Foss of Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Burnsville, Minn. When I get back I'll have a complete report of what went on here. But I'm enjoying being here with colleagues and friends, eating good food, drinking cheap beer, and learning lots.
I heard this afternoon that the pope has been hospitalized. Let the Vatican Spin Machine fire its engines!
