So this is Puck.
His fine bed is my stole project–eight patchwork stoles made with wildly dissimilar fabrics for a group of eight seminarians (me and seven others). I have at long last finished the patchwork and was just beginning to attempt a layout.

He thought a layout would be an excellent idea.


I got into sexuality education because of my church. More precisely, my church so impressed me with not only what they were doing but how that I committed to myself to learn to teach the sexuality education class I was taking in Sunday School. I did. Then I got the updated version of the training. In the spaces between I have read everything I can get my hands on to stay educated about sex and sexuality and education and spirituality and religion and how they all tie together. One of my first encounters with such things was a slide show about AIDS, given in the early 90’s by a member of our church who was connected to SEICUS (Sexuality Education and Information Council of the United States). That member was Debra Haffner who has since become a UU minister. This is her blog. Check it out!

Every once in a while I wander through links on other websites. This comes to me from the indomitable and captivating Real Live Preacher and is called Blaugustine.
