Christmas Greetings: Mi Burrito Sabanero

One of the cute songs they sing here is “Mi Burrito Sabanero” (my little burro from the savannah). It is a Venezuelan Christmas song and the chorus says, “If you see me, I’m on my way to Bethlehem.” Of course, riding the little burro. Here is a completely non-professional version of this from my daughter.

Watch and enjoy. Do drop by the Youtube page and give it your thumbs up. And Christmas blessings on this tenth day of Christmas.

Willa Cather’s *Death Comes for the Archbishop*

Death Comes for the ArchbishopDeath Comes for the Archbishop by Willa Cather

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Enchanting, profound, elegiac, epic, beautiful. As a man with a PhD in Divinity and professor at a seminary I will tell you that the missiology and anthropology of religion in this book is penetrating and deep. As a priest and pastor I found it incredibly moving, sometimes to the point of tears.

Anyone interested in the history of the West of the USA or missiology should read this book or listen to the audio version.

At the Museum of Pre-Columbian Gold

Some time ago Bishop Hector Monterroso of the Anglican Diocese of Costa Rica invited me to provide some ongoing education for the clergy of the diocese, but he also invited my family to come down to Costa Rica and spend some time here. And we did it! Here is a picture of my youngest one at the Museum of Pre-Columbian Gold.
