I was at a funeral recently and, not being Catholic, was day dreaming while everyone else was going up for Communion. I realized that many of my blog posts are like the homilies you hear in church. I’ll focus on a text, explain it a bit, show an analogy or tell a related story, and then try to draw a lesson or raise a question to think about that in a larger context. I haven’t checked to be sure, but I suspect that you’ll see that pattern pretty consistently in my posts.
