Ireland--the class has begun

Great couple of days as "The Celtic Trail" class has begun--Professor of Record, Robert Calvert, from the Scottish Presbyterian Church, says this is one extended walking conversation. We'll be looking at Celtic Christianity--whose roots go back to Patrick and Columba. Last evening we took a walking tour (4 miles or more) of the Catholic and Protestant neighborhoods we are staying near. Ireland has had relative peace for three years but it is interesting to hear about "the troubles" as the ongoing war (since 1969) is called.

This morning we attended a Presbyterian Church and then took a bus to the St. Patrick Center and on to couple of historic Irish Churches.
