Been leading two middle east travel seminars, woke up to the call of the muezzins in Bethlehem. This morning we will worship at the Christmas Lutheran Church with the congregation of the Rev. Mitri Raheb. In the meantime,here is a link to an article of mine published last month in the journal Minding Nature, from the Center for Humans and Nature. It's a lovely online journal published three times a year. I hope you will find many other articles in it interesting as well.
