Also, if any of you readers are in the Cincy area, Kevin Rains' church is holding a wake. "There are some things in life, and they may be the most important things, that we cannot know by research or reflection, but only by committing ourselves. We must dare in order to know. Life is full of situations to which I can respond not with part of myself but only with commitment of my whole being." --J.H. Oldham Life is Commitment (1953)
