In the Summer 2014 Caravans, we tell you our news from retreats on the Christian Mystics to fire mitigation, from building a red brick wall to spring landscaping and planting. Tessa reviews Remember to Live: Embracing the Second Half of Life by Thomas Ryan. Fr. Dave introduces you to Dr. John Esposito in his reflections, “Are Muslims a Threat to Us?” We share the remarkable moment with “Pope Francis at the Wall” during his recent trip to the Holy Land where Palestinians wrote on the contentious concrete barrier: “Bethlehem look like Warsaw Ghetto.” We show you how some readers respond to Season of Glad Songs and ask you to consider giving it to family and friends this Christmas.
