I was surprised to find an article I had written a few months ago surface in Saturday’s Journal. It was slightly edited for timeliness as it contained a reference to Ash Wednesday, but the reference isn’t critical to the message, which has to do with finding church and faith and God beyond the walls of the church.

Thank you Janet Vlieg. (Edmonton Journal Religion editor)

  1. Forgetting what you’ve submitted is a sure sign that you’ve entered the ranks of the prolific. Other prolific authors, from a google search that produced 484,000 sites, are Alexander McCall Smith, Isaac Asimov and Tulku Thondup, author of Peaceful Death, Joyful Rebirth: A Tibetan Buddhist Guidebook with a CD of Guided Meditations. Still alive and kicking, McCall Smith typically bangs out 3,000 words a day. And here’s another thought on prolificacy from George Murray, poet and co-editor of the literary blog He sees the near-annual release of a new Stephen King novel as “the literary equivalent of watching a skinny Japanese dude scarf down 100 hot dogs in an eating contest; you are kind of grossed out, but gotta hand it to him.” Congratulations on entering that sometimes painful contest Steve!
