This week is my last push to put the final touches on Making Disciples. So blogging will happen but be sporadic.
Fr. Mike is offerings a series of talks this week in a parish of his old stomping grounds in Eugene, Oregon. His topics sound exciting to me so if you find yourself in the Eugene area, consider attending.
There's a reason why Fr. Mike wears Oregon athletic gear so much of the time - he is a deeply committed fan of the . . .DUCKS. . . The Mighty Ducks. . . The mind boggles.
As a Husky myself (University of Washington alum), I've grown used to being on the receiving end of the slings and arrows of outrageous Duck fandom. He's told me some story about Walt Disney offering a large sum of money to the University 50 years ago if they would take the Duck (Donald?) as their mascot but I'm sure its just an urban legend.
But what else could explain it? Any of our readers know the true story?
