Furman Grad, Sociology major but it was little tougher than Auburn football players had Had three dates with beautiful women the summer of 1978. Did not marry any of em. Never married anybody cause what was available was undesirable and what was desirable was unaffordable. Unlucky in love as they say and even still it is sometimes heartbreaking.

Valentine Update/ Bringing Matthew's Yale to Collinsville

Feb 14. Just found this today at Faith in Public Life. Interesting Doings AT Yale, the Collinsville City Council and it's "key mainstreet constituency" Kettering Forums and what not should be aware of.
Investigate this exhaustively; and be sure to read the first comment

Feb 7 or so
Just sent Matthew Morgan, recent Grad of Yale Divinity School, who still resides in the Region an invitation to attend the lectures of my friend Brent Walker at Yale next week.
Kind of a different take on church state issues than I have been able to fathom observing Collinsville City Hall and what passes for most Baptists in the region; though I am quite fond of almost all but 5-7 of them.
Don't know if Matthew's visiting professor Randall Balmer's book Thy Kingdom Come is in the Collinsville Library yet. I would hope that Annie Lucas Brown and Rebecca Mitchell would bring it to the Library's attention, given they have a progressive plant in the town in Matthew.
And Kate Campbell has conversation tonight in New Caanan with my friend Ellen Rosenberg.
Whether any of this gets me back on the church roll where my Momma was baptized remains to be seen. Some upcoming conversations this spring show signs of a small ray of hope, else my fears the Golyovov Family's hypocrisy infests the region my prevail.
Catatonia is always an option.

But Rejoice Brent Walker is incarnating the True Religion at Yale
