I'm writing today from Las Vegas, NV. I'm here exhibiting for my gig at the National Conference for Catechetical Leadership (NCCL). It's an annual gathering (74 years running) of Catholics who lead religious education programs for dioceses and parishes.
Las Vegas was an interesting choice for this year's host city. At first glance, "sin city" doesn't offer many opportunities for prayerful contemplation.
But, admist the glitz, I may have found one.
From my 21st floor room at Bally's, I have a fine view of the nearby mountains. And, while I am by no means an early riser, my body is still on Eastern Standard Time. So, this morning, I was able to watch the sun rise over those peaks.
