The Santa Claus Teacher

I will regularly read daily meditations posted by Richard Rohr, a Franciscan monk in Albequerque, New Mexico. Part of what makes him so fascinating is the way he is able to draw connections between societies we often think are seperate, whether they be religion by drawing similarities among Buddhism, Islam, Christianity, Hinduism and Judaism, or comparing the development of the self with the development of society through Spiral Dynamics, or the link between God and humanity. You read enough of these and you can't help but see similarities everywhere and his post from today seemed to be as much about teaching and learning as it was about spirituality. So I tried writing it that way. What
