A merry dance of Catholic social doctrine, permaculture, distributism, and other odd answers to pressing questions

Building Catholic Communities: New Lecture Series

2008 Mar 07, 11:12 Fri

Apologies for the long absence. I've been moving, but now I'm settled in and ready to get back to work.

I've just found out about a new group, Building Catholic Communities, that's put together an exciting lecture series in Washington D.C. The series began February 11, but it's running until April 30, so if you're anywhere near D.C., check it out.

Topics range from John Sharpe of IHS Press on Our Birthright of Responsibility: Real Property and its Restoration Today to Milton Grenfell on Beguinage: Cohousing in Medieval Flanders.

  • Ezine

    Penny Justice is a free bimonthly ezine featuring thoughts, news, resources, and concrete ideas on how to live justice right now, one penny and one moment at a time.

  • Pennies

    Life is made of pennies. We think in terms of dollars: thousands of dollars, millions, billions, trillions. You might not even pick a penny off the ground. But the most gigantic corporation would wither and die without pennies. And for many a man, woman, and child, a few hundred pennies is the work of a day.

    We don't control great fortunes, but we do control our pennies. We don't control our years, but we do control this moment. Billionare or beggar, we live one instant at a time.

    Now.
