I have proposed a class for the summer of 2016 based on the new book that my pastor, Paul Rock, and I have written, Jesus, Pope Francis and a Protestant Walk into a Bar: Lessons for the Christian Church. The book is due out in September. So the class, if it happens, will focus on ecumenical and interfaith relations.
Watch this space, and if the course is approved and the online catalog link to the class is available I will post it here.
For more information about the ranch, click on this Ghost Ranch link. The ranch is a national Presbyterian conference center in northern New Mexico, about an hour north of Santa Fe in the beautiful red rock hills that Georgia O'Keeffe painted so often.
I hope my photo here from Ghost Ranch gives you at least a taste of what you can expect there.
Classes typically meet each morning from 9 until noon and each evening from 7 to 8:30. It's a wonderful, relaxed-but-stimulating atmosphere.
And, no, you don't have to be a Presbyterian to join us. People of any faith, and none, are welcome. If you have questions, e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
