21 Nov 2017: Heather’s Homily – Partisanship Politics and Sexual Abuse

I wasn’t sure what to write for my homily today, then I switched on Fox News‘s ‘The Five’.

It’s more than 35 years since I did yoga so I don’t remember much about it, but some of the names here seem familiar. I do remember the Downward Dog, which, of course has a new name here – Downward Cat! 17 August was Black Cat Appreciation Day, and the real life Simon, Simon... read more
