Food for Thought. . .
Another wonderful reflection from our Vestry Compline Service. Thank you, Jim Hawkins. . .

I entered college 62 year ago this September. The word “neuroscience” had not been devised. I took no science, premed or psychology courses. I was an English major; I think by default.

           I went to law school, solely to avoid Vietnam which was beginning to heat up in the Spring of 1963 when I graduated from college.  Although I also graduated from law school in many ways I feel my formal education ended when I graduated from college.

           Following law school there were some nervous months waiting for notice that I was drafted as a private into the army.  Surprisingly, I was deferred from the draft until a national emergency, which no President ever declared. After receiving that good news, I enthusiastically joined the “rat race”. My father died when he was 50 and all my pursuits were driven by that haunting deadline. I was a young man in a hurry and there was little time or seeming interest in self-reflection.

Going Deeper
Yossi Klein Halevi offered an evening presentation during my visit to Israel last year. I am deeply impressed with his writing and vision. While his piece acknowledges the limits of the new coalition government in Israel, it is an important piece. . .
