    Blatant plug
    Lots of blogs are ads in disguise. This is a blatant plug for a Lent book which has been selling well at our church these past weeks. It's called The Shame and the Glory and it helps fundraise for Ridley Hall, the college which nurtured me for a couple of years, 98-00. Daily reflections penned by students and staff: they've been busy.

    The only extracurricular writing I did for college was a month as guest editor for the Federation Newsletter, in which I showcased Dave Brammer's imagined encounter between John Coltrane, Sojourner Truth and himself, a lengthy Ignatian fusion of experiences from different historical eras which formed the core of a jazz worship event we'd put on in the old college library one night. They never asked me to edit it again. Speaking of Sojourner Truth, see Maggi (another ex-Ridleyite)'s blog today.
