Philosophical Considerations

People have begun asking us if we have gained any insight into the nature of the world and our place in it -- both in a religious sense and from a political, socio-economic perspective.  The answer is . . . well, yes and no.  I have written, erased, re-written, and re-erased many words in this section.  But at the end of the day, the thoughts are simply too big and too personal to discuss here.  Come see me and we'll talk.  Bring a nice Shiraz.  :-)
