  • “I hear some people say they are ‘spiritual’ but not ‘religious.’  What do they mean?”— Judy

     

    The place to start is to ask your friends what they mean by this statement. Absent their response here, we can make a few general observations.

    Some individuals who say this often are expressing their rejection of “institutional” religion.  They may have been burned by an unpleasant “church” experience or perhaps simply consider themselves above the mundane, human-shaped thing which often passes for “church” in our day.  

    Their critique is not entirely unwarranted — there is plenty of room for improvement if not radical change in the way “church” often appears in our culture.

  • Pajarito Environmental Education Center will air a free live webcast of the bat flight from Bracken Cave near San Antonio, Texas from 5-6:30 p.m. Sept. 18.  Chris Judson from Bandelier will be on hand to talk about the bat flight and answer questions.

    Did you know that the 20 million Mexican free-tailed bats living in Bracken Cave eat approximately 200 tons of insects every night? They emerge from the cave each evening to feed, to the wonder of scores of eager spectators.

    Now, with the age of technology, those spectators don’t even need to be in Texas. Those wanting to witness this exciting spectacle can watch “BatsLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure” via webcast.

    Bats are the only mammals that can fly, thanks to their modified fingers and thin membrane. In order to catch insects, most bats are highly maneuverable, fly very fast and sometimes fly as far as 30-50 miles in one night. 

  • “How I Learned to Lead ‘Priedhorsky Moderate:’ Forty Adventures in Canyon Country, Starting Age 10”

    Part coming-of-age story, part exploration of local natural beauty and part compendium of debacles, Reid Priedhorsky’s talk is about the canyons of the Colorado Plateau. 

    In photographs and illustrations, he will tell the story of his 40 adventures in the ethereal landscape, which inspired the alien worlds of Calvin and Hobbes’ “Spaceman Spiff,” at 7:45 p.m. Sept. 19 at Fuller Lodge.

    Priedhorsky will speak about impacts of growing up Priedhorsky and give a presentation to show exactly what happened as a result.
