I’ll be traveling to Goshen, Indiana, tomorrow to attend a Mennonite conference where I’ll be giving a couple of talks on “People of Peace in a Violent World.” From there, my wife Lisa and I will head to Chicago for a working vacation. It’s a vacation because my parents will be watching our four young children (and four of their cousins) for the fifth annual Cousin Week. It’s a working vacation because I’ll be researching my second book project at the Wheaton archives, and Lisa will be studying hard for her comprehensive exams in sociology. Don’t worry–we’ll take the evenings off and have a good time in downtown Chicago. All that to say: posting may be a bit sporadic over the next week.
In the meantime–and in the spirit of Anabaptism–check out this recent post at “Q” by Nancy Sleeth. It’s about her recent book Almost Amish: 10 Principles for a Slower, Simpler, More Sustainable Life.
