Hello! As I noted in my previous blog post, I have been up to my eyeballs with farm work and preparing and delivering a number of lectures, such that I haven’t had much time to devote to this blog. Again, I’m sorry for the hiatus, which I think is just about at an end. In the meantime, I wanted to share with any interested readers a digital recording made of a recent presentation I gave at the 2011 annual conference of the Notre Dame Center for Liturgy (http://liturgy.nd.edu). It’s entitled “Fruit of the Earth, Work of Human Hands: The Eucharist, Agriculture, and Ecological Responsibility.” You listen to it by going to the publisher’s webpage for my recent book, A Time to Plant, and clicking on the “Extras” tab. Under Audio, you’ll find there a variety of mp3 audio pieces; the last one on the list is the lecture I gave at Notre Dame. Here’s the link: https://www.avemariapress.com/product/1-933495-26-X/A-Time-to-Plant/
Again, thanks for your patience with the blog posts. I’m ruminating on one now and should post it fairly soon.
