New Urbanism lecture

I recommend this lecture on urbanism by Andrés Duany. While the talk centres on suburban sprawl in the USA, it is relevant and interesting in other contexts.

Heard on the bus

Two young women, after a tentative back and forth about whether each went to church, and what sort of church (one used to go to a Catholic church, then to a Presbyterian one because it was the only one nearby), the following:

But they said that my family was going to Hell, and I didn’t want to be the only one in Heaven, so I stopped going to church.

I really want to hear stories about the good clergy, the insightful priests, the pastors who care for their flock and follow in the footsteps of Christ.
