I’m enjoying my first visit to Duluth, MN, and I have to say that it is simply one of the most beautiful lakefronts I have ever seen! I had a wonderfully relaxing afternoon here yesterday, topped off by a nice 5-mile run along the lake walk. Lots of nice quiet time last evening in the hotel room to get some writing done. Today, I will do a presentation at the Minnesota Catholic Education Association Conference. I look forward to spending a few hours with catechists and Catholic school religion teachers, as we look at skills and strategies for effective catechesis drawing from my book, The Catechist’s Toolbox!
