I have another post up at the Episcopal Cafe. It's about heat and hummingbirds and current affairs. Go over and give it a buzz.
I do want to commend to your attention Notre Dame’s Science of Generosity Initiative, to which I refer in the post. It might seem a stretch to most folks to think about studying generosity scientifically. On the other hand, there are many expressions of human behavior and human personality that we study. We study hope and optimism. So, why not study generosity? Go over and browse for a while. You'll find interesting papers to think about, and a blog that's updated regularly. I think you'll find it interesting. If you're at all like me, you'll find some of it just fun.
