Teetering on the Edge of the Wagon

So, last weekend, I went to this giant conference in Anaheim, CA called RE Congress (http://www.recongress.org) It for Catholic Religious Educators. As I've said before, I still spend a good part of my time helping my mom out in the church, and this including going to conferences such as these.

Tell Me What My Beliefs Are

Sorry about the long absence. A cold, followed by midterms, makes for an overly long dry-spell. Also, a quick note regarding the earlier posts: I've gone back and fixed all of the names of the people I talked to. I may be thinking of the wrong person, but at least I'm using the correct name now.
