One of my very good friends and colleagues at our university, Dr. Kim Whitehead, was named Humanities Teacher of the Year in our state. Kim teaches creative writing and also a class called Religions of the World. Last year, she and a number of her students attended a Divine Liturgy at my parish (she is a very strong adherent of the concept of "experiential learning"). Father Chris perhaps remembers her.

I am just so happy for her and wanted to praise the Lord for this. Thought I might share this with you folks.

Praise be to God for all things!

Please pass my (our?) congratulations on to Dr. Whitehead.  She sounds like someone who deserves the honor. :-)
