This bright Saturday is Homesteader Days in Valier. I don't know how many actual "homesteaders" are left. People are quite different now, but they like to remember a historical practice when people and the nation were different. It's kind religious.
In Kansas City the General Assembly of the Unitarian Universalist Association is proceeding, gathering those with the money or backing to talk about what concerns their sociology, mostly unconventional post-Christians with a good income and some high education.
In my back bedroom, which is my writing space and also lecture hall, I'm going to simply post the URL for a video touting a book by Stephen T. Asma, who is asking about religion. I think he is searching through the roots and nature of the phenomenon in a helpful way.
