Then we get engaged like some CSI lab detective and find that the something missing is indirectly connected to the very disciplines we originally thought were nonessential.

✓ Holiday Assignment: View “Lars and the Real Girl,” a film directed by Craig Gillespie and nominated last year for best original screenplay. The film may be in the comedy section at the video store. It is not comedy. It was one of five films I viewed in the Process Theology film class I took while on educational leave this past spring. Let’s discuss it here at church in the new year.
