Three Beautiful Things 05/17/10: Liberty of Ideas, Pedro Paramo's Suffering, Episcopalians and the Bible

1. In WR 122, we explored what it means to have a free mind and what a liberty of ideas demands of a person.

2. I was very impressed with the way my World Lit. students dealt with the suffering experienced by the title character in Pedro Paramo, and how well they understood the way this story explores what is human and deeply pained in this monstrous man.

3. Tonight's presentation by Loren Crow of the Episcopalian stance when it comes to Scripture was stimulating and often fascinating. It was a very enjoyable class.
