Well, here I am again. Two days in a row of being on the internet. Wow!!! That is amazing. Now that I have a little more time, I must update everyone. I got here on Friday night and the city is beautiful. The house that I am staying in is in the historic part of the city. In the center. I am right across the street from a Baskin Robins!!! I know, weird right? My family has a mom, dad, grandma, son and the cousin of the son is here right now. The family and my brother´s (the families really adopt you here) friends are nice.

I was then informed, after a bit of research, that this was from the Human Rights Campaign and that it is showing up everywhere due to the Supreme Court debate regarding same-sex marriage. I normally try my best to avoid political issues (apart from with a very select group of friends), but since Conversatio Morum is written to address the subject of theology and culture, I figure that it’s appropriate and I hope that this post brings some clarity and is helpful to you as the nationwide conversation continues.
Here’s the point of it all kids…………..You ready?…………..God loves you!!! “Wow, big surprise.”(sarcasm added) That is probably what most of you are thinking. But that is it.
