Beautiful Prague

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.
