Let's do it!
The first of two satellites carrying the sail is set to launch later this month. A second, scheduled for launch next year, will go into higher orbit to fully test the concept.

Stanley Hauerwas is America's theological gadfly. Short is the list of people who have not been offended by something said by  the Socrates of Durham (North Carolina). There is the infamous example...

The topic of discussion in my house this morning was how outdated and antique the US train system is compared to the rest of the world.  I wish the US would get with times. The West Coast especially has a completely antiquated rail system.

Thank you, Doug, for flying  in and standing up against the plutocrats!
Last week U.S. mailman Doug Hughes made national headlines when he flew a tiny personal aircraft known as a gyrocopter on to the lawn of the U.S. Capitol in an act of civil disobedience. Hughes was carrying letters to every member of Congress urging them to address corruption and to pass campaign finance reform. The letter began with a quote from John Kerry’s farewell speech to the Senate: "The unending chase for money I believe threatens to stea...

At the Un-National Monument along the Canadian Border
By William E. Stafford
 
This is the field where the battle did not happen,
where the unknown soldier did not die.
This is the field where grass joined hands,
where no monument stands,
and the only heroic thing is the sky.
 
Birds fly here without any sound,
unfolding their wings across the open.
No people killed—or were killed—on this ground
hallowed by neglect and an air so tame
that people celebrate it by forgetting its name.
 
-> Perhaps a vision of the way it ought to be—imagining shalom.

Story
Tagline
A member of the Society of Gentle-Cynics
Introduction
Reared in Hamilton OH, served as altar boy, excelled as Boy Scout, an aviation enthusiast, and golfer; joined U.S. AF (77) and stepped out in a lonely world. In '80 I encountered the story of Jesus which began a widespread human transformation and an emerging cognizance of the Way. I discerned a call to ministry and studied at Trinity College. Married in 87, taught MS English, began pastoral work in Richmond, VA, ordained in 92. In 93, I encountered ministry with a meta-church structure until 97, took a sabbatical and followed a path of enrichment while taking on classic spiritual disciplines thus broadening my theological horizons while applying doubt to my advantage. Moved to Harrisonburg, VA in 98, consulted in two industries; entered seminary in 03 to work out some significant formational projects at Eastern Mennonite Seminary; earned an MDIV while seeking to inch my way into a missional purpose and responding to an ongoing emerging church conversation with a growing cognizance of the Way non-violently via peace-making in a chaotic, fragmented and violent world filled with harsh realities and challenges.
