  1. Deacon Chuck,

    Just checking in with you and your thoughts. I hope you are well. Since your work is not printed in the Bulletin any more I do not keep up with it regularly. I did happen upon your Volume 40 and and found it interesting. You covered a lot of ground. A couple of phrases got my attention. You mentioned a secular relativist vacuum that you found disturbing. I am not sure what that means as we live on a planet that given it’s god given diversity could easily be described as secular and relative without passing judgement. I guess the opposite of that is a religious, constructivist vacuum that you might find more comfortable, You seem to want to return to a past that never existed. Injustice, diversity, disagreement.and longing have been around a long time. We live in a country and a world that has come a long way in terms of providing opportunity and happiness for many people. That should be celebrated, but many oppressed people understand we have a long way to go. You and I are not those people. We are priviledged. I guess I would appreciate an example of Moral Relativism that is exhibits The right and wrong you find so easily discernible.
