Well, its been two months since I’ve returned from Italy and about a month since I’ve returned from New Orleans. Add in a whole lot of a semester, and I haven’t had much time to process this last bit of my life. Now that the fall semester is over, I’m finding a lot of time to curl up, sleep, and start to piece everything together.
Just in time too! After the holidays, as of January 1st, I’ll be in Israel and Palestine. I’m traveling as part of a class in contextual theology and I’ll be in the Middle East for the whole of January. I’ll be keeping a daily (or as often as I can) account of my travels on this blog. In addition to visiting many of the holy land pilgrimage sites, my group will be meeting with various peace and inter-religious dialogue groups in both Palestine and Israel.
I’m looking forward to talking with folks about real inter-religious dialogue that is happening. A lot of my thesis work on the topic has been theoretical and I’m itching to see it in action.
Well, here’s me wishing everyone a safe and happy holiday season. Keep warm! and if the snow gets too much, you can always join me in the desert! Assalamu alaikum
