Like a lot of people, I recently watched the PBS series “God in America.” And, you’ll be shocked to learn, I had some emphatic responses to it. You can read about them on the website Religion Dispatches.
Also, on Saturday, I was the keynote speaker for Pax Christi Metro New York’s annual assembly program, “Water of War, Waters of Peace,” an exploration of the increasing threat of armed conflicts caused by the world water crisis. Selections from my talk and from an interview with Rosemarie Pace, PCMNY executive director, were featured on “Currents,” the Catholic Diocese of Brooklyn’s evening television news report. (The video includes the entire “Currents” episode, but our segment comes first, so hang on through the lead-ins and you’ll get to the water wars segment pretty quickly.)
