Read David C. Steinmetz's brief and profound note on "what saints teach us" in the recent Christian Century (October 30 issue, not up as of today). It is wise in the ways only senior scholars can be--smart, complex, simple, chastened, and reflective. I wrote to thank him for the article, conscious of how often I think of such and don't write to say thanks. Do you? If not, try it. A good "All Saints" discipline!
