Bacon From Acorns is now LifeCraft.

holy-familyAs my family prepares for Christmas I think of the many people with whom I have been able to be in contact through LifeCraft: old friends and new friends, and people I haven’t met in the flesh. It is a blessing and an honor for me to be in contact with you, even if but here on the web.

I sincerely hope that this will be a season in which you will be surprised by joy—akin to the simple joy I had the first time I tasted the bacon of my acorn-fattened pigs. It was a small window for me into a big truth: that the world is like a household, where things have been carefully arranged by a Father who is always thinking of his children.

On Christmas Eve Ethika Politika will post a short reflection of mine on how Aristotle can give us the key to understanding Christmas. I will send out that link tomorrow. Please have a Merry Christmas.
