- Sep 2, 2002Hey Jason!
Great to hear from you again! I miss you around here, brother.

this chapter have been published under the title "Men, Women, and
Order in the Church." Great little book.

nature is pretty much officially "cast off." Because of this, it
would nearly impossible to avoid seeing or speaking to someone who is
not in some stage of immodest dress. It would, therefore, become
nearly impossible to avoid all contact and conversation. I don't
think it is necessary -- though we need to always be careful as to
where our eyes are roaming.
The beach.... I love the ocean. I love to feel the sand between my
toes, hear the roar of the waves, smell the sea, taste the saltiness
of the water... I'm landlocked in PA, but every once in a while I get
an "ocean jones" where I have to get to the Atlantic, just to be
there for a few hours. I HATE the fact that there are practically
naked people everywhere. But to answer your question, my wife has
been known to be spotted at the beach wearing her snood!

because there were some other higher priority books I needed, and
partially because some of the other stuff on the website on which I
found that book advertised was, well, weird -- they claim to be a mix
of Rabbinical and Puritan influences. Now, that should make for a
book that has some interesting and useful quotes, but I passed on it
for the time being.
