I regret to inform you that we could not find a sub for tomorrow's classes (Thursday, 9/26). So there will be no class on Thursday. The 8:00 and 9:30 classes should do a short comparative essay comparing the four Indian religions: Hinduism, Jainism, Buddhism and Sikhism---It does not have to be more than three typed pages---what I would like is the major points of agreement and the major differences---"Big Picture" summary to be turned in on Tuesday. The 2:00 p.m. Express class--if you could do a two page summary of the basic worldview and convictions of Indigenous culture and religion typed to be turned in on Tuesday---NOT more than two pages---you should be able to get the "big picture" from chapter two and the powerpoint presentation. I will see you on Tuesday. Have a great weekend.

I grew up with opportunities for intellectual and spiritual growth, secure in the knowledge that I was loved, free from fear, and confident that my world was close to perfect. And I was the center of a world that had meaning only in terms of its effect on me-- what I could see from a height of three feet and what I could comprehend with the intellect and emotions of a child. This state of innocence persisted through my early teens, but changed dramatically in the spring of my sophomore year of high school. My beloved father was dying of AIDS.
