Less blogging, more writing ...

Unshakeable Hope has been around for more than 4 years.  In the early days there were daily posts or even multiple posts per day.  As time has gone on, however, the writing has decreased.  In large part this is due to a change in my responsibilities at Ruah Woods, which are much more writing-centric than in the beginning.  

For the foreseeable future, new blog posts will become even rarer as I dedicate more time to completing an exciting project for high school students and teachers.  There will probably be moments from time to time when I can't help but share my thoughts on a particular topic, but I will not be regularly blogging.

In the mean time, feel free to peruse a new site -- www.timeforthefamily.com -- which I co-founded with fellow alumni from the John Paul II Institute.  It is not affiliated with Ruah Woods or the John Paul II Institute.  As an independent venture of some JPII Institute alumni, it is a place to visit to reflect on the gift of marriage and family, and to learn more about what the Church teaches and why on these subjects.

Please pray for the project I am working on and for the inspiration of the Holy Spirit as I move to less blogging and (ironically) more writing.

The dignity of a haircut

The New York Times just featured the story of hairstylist Mark Bustos.  His weekdays are filled by giving $150 haircuts, often to celebrities.  But his Sundays?  His Sundays are dedicated to giving free haircuts to the homeless of New York City.  

The story of Mark Bustos' unique way of affirming the dignity of the person is here.
