Last night in Alaska

Last night I gave the Caroline Penniman Wohlforth Lecture in Anchorage, Alaska, sponsored by St. Mary's Episcopal Church and hosted at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church.

It was a wonderful night-- a great crowd with excellent questions-- and I left thinking about the things I could have done better.  There were a Bishop and an Archbishop in attendance:  Mark Lattime, the Episcopal Bishop of Alaska and Francis Hurley, the former Archbishop of the Catholic Archdiocese of Anchorage.  Bishop Lattime came all the way from Fairbanks, which is over 400 miles away.  For a non-theologian talking about theology, that really puts some pressure on!

People here have been really hospitable-- even former Baylor student Justin Tapp, who sprang for lunch.
