Games and Wine
I want to save this link from Mary so that I can share it with seminarians and priests who are inventing new ways of i-pod publishing.
The link is the story about the seminarians who won first prize for a game design.
Also, I’ve received lots of questions about the mystery friend who wrote about wine and the enjoyment of Spirit. Sorry that I did not identify him. He is David Morgan and he wrote:
“There’s something immensely important about certain forms of pleasure. I’m thinking of wine and cigars and chocolate. But one might argue the same of gardening and running and all forms of art. These kinds of activity exercise the embodied registers of value that connect us to the physical universe of mammals and bodies, but also articulate the realm of spirit, that is, the domain of culture that is characteristically human, and human in its best form. When we engage in embodied forms of knowing we change our relationship to the universe. We affirm it, but we also somehow transcend it, by which I
don’t mean we travel to heaven and leave the world behind, but add to the physical universe a level of being that is our species’ task to make and contribute. Spirit is about stretching language to touch taste and feeling and memory and fragrance.”
