I am traveling again. I am in Prague with my daughter Tabitha. We are going to present a paper at the International Bonhoeffer Congress, which is meeting here this week. We arrived early to do a bit of sight seeing. I am learning to speak without vowels and type on a european keyboard. Well, thez reallz do have vowels, it§s just that letters like l, r, m, n etc. can be used as vowels. And z an y trade places on the kezboard.
I am planning to see the statue of Jan Huss today. he was the earlz reformer. A hundred years before luther he opposed the selling of indulgences. In his days the indulgences were sold to finance papal wars. He was promised safe passage to go to a conference to discuss his views but was betrayed and burnt at the stake.
Lets hope european conferences are safer and more civilized these days.
