Deep thoughts? I don't have any. My brain is too tired from teaching a class on Prison Ministry with a prison chaplain at Princeton Seminary.   
What do I know about prison? Not much, honestly. But here is what I was arguing: Christian presence in prison is a sacrament. Like Baptism or the Lord's Supper, it is a means of grace to show us divine freedom.   
Who did I learn this from? Martin Luther King, Jr. We're celebrating MLK weekend with a Lock-In. Consider it training for more serious work down the road.

Dear Chorale & Cantorei,

It's great to sing and be together again.  Thank you for your inspiration and commitment to worship through song!  I pray we always remember what we sing.
